I’ve been using the 2018 MacBook Pro 13” for a year now. I love the i7 Quad core, and I got it with 16GB Ram, and 1 TB drive. I figured I’d have this for 5 years, it’s been serving me well until I got back into video editing. I’m a data hoarder and had the drive almost filled up with the content I already have on board between music, movies, photos, and just tons of data. It’s enough to get me nervous about capacity sometimes when I’m loading a lot of 4K content to edit. External drives aren’t very convenient as I travel a lot and need to keep minimal. When Apple released the 2019 MacBook Pros a couple weeks ago, I kept pricing it out with my company discount fully maxed out, had it sitting in my cart and then removed it. Finally last week I pulled the trigger. I figured between what I would get selling the 2018, the points from using my Apple Barclays card would pay for AppleCare +, the convenience of travel with not having to worry about hard drive space, I’ll have the best version of this model MacBook Pro, and it will make me money. I paid and anxiously awaited shipment. It arrived today, Space Gray 13” MacBook Pro, I7, 16GB RAM, 2 TB Hard drive, and I am in computing heaven!! This is a dream machine for me. The differences between the 2018 and 2019 performance wise are minimal but the keyboard is noticeable. First of all, I used an external SSD hard drive for the migration assistant from a Time Machine backup. That was the fastest I have ever experienced moving everything from one MacBook to another. I used to have to put the 2 together and go to bed, next morning it was almost done. Doing it this way, it took less then 2 hours. I was expecting the regular slight lag as the new MacBook Pro indexes files and goes through that initial processing, and am not noticing any of that at all. As far as the keyboard differences, there is definitely a difference in the feel. The sound is not loud at all, I would say the same volume as the 2018. The keys feel a little firmer. The key presses don’t have the slightly flimsy feel the previous generation had. It seemed like there was a lot more movement in the keys on the last one compared to the 2019 which just feels more solid. Time will tell if they really fixed the previous issues, mind you I had no issues with the 2018, and reporting showed the 2018 did not have the return volume generations before that had. I wouldn’t upgrade just for the keyboard, had I not wanted the larger drive, I really wouldn’t have had the need to upgrade. This is the MacBook Pro that I see myself keeping for a long time. If you are using any 13” MacBook Pro before the 2018 version, this will absolutely be a worthwhile upgrade. The Quad Core is incredibly fast, any issues that were present in previous models have been addressed and likely fixed, and the performance is so impressive.
