MacBook Pro 13 [core i5, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD]
The MacBook Pro “Core i5” 1.4 13-Inch (2019, Touch Bar, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports) is powered by a 14 nm, 8th Generation “Coffee Lake” 1.4 GHz Intel “Core i5” processor (I5-8257U), with four independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 128 MB of eDRAM embedded on the processor die, and a shared 6 MB level 3 cache. This notebook also packs 8 GB of onboard 2133 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (which could be upgraded to 16 GB at the time of purchase, but cannot be upgraded later), 128 GB of flash SSD storage, and an integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 graphics processor that shares memory with the system.
Externally, this notebook has an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam, a revised “third-generation” butterfly mechanism keyboard with an integrated “Touch Bar” with a touch-sensitive control that adapts for different applications and provides Touch ID login support in lieu of traditional function keys, and a gigantic “Force Touch” trackpad.
Additionally, it has a high-resolution LED-backlit 13.3″ widescreen 2560×1600 (227 ppi, 500 nits) “Retina” display with True Tone technology, and an integrated battery that provides an Apple estimated 10 hours of runtime.
This notebook was sold in either silver colored aluminum or a darker “Space Gray” colored aluminum housing (but not other colors) and weighs just a bit more than 3 pounds (1.37 kg).
Connectivity includes 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, two “Thunderbolt 3” ports (USB-C connector), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Compared to its much older predecessor, this model has a faster processor, architecture, and graphics processor in addition to a tweaked butterfly keyboard said to use different materials and be less error-prone. It also gains the aforementioned T2 security chip, Touch ID, and Touch Bar (but loses the traditional function keys).
