TESTED: 2019 MacBook Pro 16-inch versus 2019 iMac 5K — MacBook Pro Finally the Do-It-All Desktop Replacement?
In 2019 Apple MacBook Pro with 16" Display: the Single Computer Solution At Last, I postulated that the 2019 MacBook Pro would finally squash the desktop/laptop conundrum, a huge win for those needing a desktop-class computer but also a laptop.
It looks to me that for 99% of photographers, even those who work their machines hard as I do, the 2019 MacBook Pro 16" is plenty fast for photography including even high-end work, unless squeezing out an extra 15% actually matters (barely enough to notice a difference).
Authorized Apple dealer B&H Photo generously provided the MacBook Pro used for review, so I thank you in advance for buying your MacBook Pro or other Mac through links on this site or at diglloyd.com, so that we get credit, and B&H knows it’s worthwhile.
Ditto for peripherals for Macs and PCs from Other World Computing.
Consult with Lloyd to determine the ideal setup for your particular workflow including CPU cores, GPU, memory, SSD, internal and external storage, backup and fault tolerance, color management, whether for video or still photography, including what is best for Photoshop, Lightroom, Capture One, focus stacking, panoramas, etc.
