Apple is set to release in September 2019 new MacBook Pro featuring ultra-narrow bezel to accommodate a 16-inch screen…

Taiwan’s ODM Quanta Computer is expected to be the sole contract producer.

MacDailyNews Take: Expect a unit near the same physical size as the 15-inch MacBook Pro, but with a larger 16-inch display, thanks to “ultra-narrow bezel.”

In addition, the new MacBook Pro is expected to include a return to the acclaimed scissor keyboard as Apple replaces the rather problematic butterfly keyboard which saved approximately half a millimeter about which no one not named Jony gave a rat’s ass.

  1. In backpacking, where space and weight really matters, we have a mantra — “Take care of the ounces and the pounds will take care of themselves.” The idea is, size and weight are cumulative effects.

    1. Who backpacks with a laptop? Everyone out there with a laptop could afford to get more exercise. Especially the fatass executives who pretend to need the most powerful computers in their companies but never use anything more than Outlook.

    1. Hopefully Apple got the message that typing on a piece of glass is horrible. Moderate travel friction free quiet mechanical keys that are immune to dust and dirt is the holy grail. Instead Apple’s shitty butterflies sacrificed all that for the sake of thickness. Some bean counter thought it would save a few pennies per unit. Doesn’t Apple have anyone in their design group who knows how to touch-type?

  2. For the first time in many years, this laptop seems compelling.

    Hopefully, there won’t be some deal breaker like memory limitations or ridiculous price.
