Apple today introduced its widely rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro with a larger display and slimmer bezels, a new Magic Keyboard with a scissor mechanism and physical Esc key, up to 64GB of RAM, up to 8TB of SSD storage, AMD Radeon Pro 5000M graphics options, upgraded speakers and microphones, and more.


The new 16-inch MacBook Pro replaces the 15-inch MacBook Pro, which has been discontinued. It is possible the 15-inch model will appear in Apple's clearance store at some point, but it is not available at this time.

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,399 in the United States, consistent with the former 15-inch MacBook Pro. A maxed-out 16-inch MacBook Pro with a 2.4GHz 8-core Core i9 processor, 64GB of RAM, 8TB of SSD storage, and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics runs $6,099 on Apple's online store.

The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is available to order today through Apple.com and the Apple Store app in many countries. It will be available in Apple Stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers in the United States later this week and is "coming soon" to stores around the world, according to Apple.

Why does the base model come with 1TB of storage? Did they really think their base model was becoming too cheap?

EDIT: I was wrong, the base model comes with 512GB. The design of the order page is just confusing once you scroll down:

Great update otherwise, resolves most complaints of the previous generation, and slightly better priced. I've got no use for 1TB though, especially with iCloud drive.

The saddest words I've read today: "Apple Store Pickup is currently unavailable"

I want it now. 2.3 8 core with 16/1TB is $2599 after edu discount and it's a stock model so they may have it in the store right away.

Sorry, but I just have to chuckle at all the folks who a month or two ago bought the 2019 15-incher, with the flawed keyboard, way worse thermal management ... absolutely convinced this one wouldn't come out anytime soon, or be way too expensive.

Now you're kinda stuck with one of the laptops that is part of what will arguably be remembered as one of the worst series of laptop designs Apple ever made.

Since I don't want to run Catalina just yet, I'm going to hold off. I always upgrade my OS as soon as possible and have for over 20 years, but not with Catalina. Maybe in 6 months. For those complaining about pricing - and I personally don't need a laptop with an 8TB boot drive, but perhaps some do, it's completely in line with Apple's historical pricing on high end machines for decades. Go back and look it up before you start to whine.

£5,769.00 for a laptop fully loaded! Are they crazy or just plain greedy. Even £2,799 for entry level is going to be too expensive for most. For that you can buy a 2nd car!
Have you looked at the equivalent PC notebooks. Once you give them similar specs the prices get close to being the same. There are so many differences under the Apple hood that there is no way to do a 1 to 1 comparison.

Yup. But on the other hand, if you did a little bit of research before your buy, you'd know that you were forking up money on a flawed product.

I don't know where you live, but I'd love to see cars for £5,769. Where I'm from (Chicago area), cars start ay over twice that!

64GB/8TB... Wow! That's a lot of horse power for a notebook.
64 GB of RAM & 8 TB of SSD? Damn. I remember just waiting for 32 GB in a MacBook Pro. Plus, I think the largest SSD I've ever seen is 2, maybe 4 TB, so 8?!?

Maxed out with an educational discount is $5,738.99.Not sure if I'll get this or wait for a new iMac.

Yea, but even a fair number of people on these threads, who knew full well about the complaints of the 2016-2019 laptops still swore by them and bought them. Not sure where those folks are now, but I have this mental image of them looking at their 'beloved' 2019 15-incher this morning, thinking "well **** me"
