The Good The latest 15-inch MacBook Pro offers major internal upgrades to the CPU, RAM, storage and display. The Core i9 version delivers a worthwhile speed boost on processor-intensive tasks.
The Bad The basic design hasn"t been updated, keeping the same advantages and flaws. Adding the new high-end options drives the cost way up.
The Bottom Line The 2018 MacBook Pro 15-inch laptop delivers the serious computing muscle that power users and creative pros crave -- but everyone else should wait for the rest of the line to be updated.
