The 2016 MacBook Pro's specs and features are now officially out for the public to see. Earlier today, Apple has finally launched its 2016 MacBook Pro and the specs and features it carries are mind-blowing, showcasing the best laptop technology that the current generation has to offer.
People are now debating which between the MacBook Pro and HP Spectre x360 is the King for 2016. At a written article at Redmond Pie is some of the list of the official specs and features of the MacBook Pro, and at the website Thurrot is the specs and features of the HP Spectre x360. Here is a brief detail of the two laptops:
The MacBook Pro comes in with two sizes: the 13.3 inch and the 15.4 inch. With the HP Spectre x360, it comes in a 13.3 inch and a 15.6 inch size.
With the MacBook Pro, it is 67 percent brighter, 67 percent higher contrast ratio, and has 25 percent more color compared to its predecessor. While the HP Spectre x360 houses a gorgeous 13-inch 1080p IPS display which may seem relatively low-res in this age of 1440p and even 4K displays.
The feature lets the hardware owners be able to authenticate and verify themselves with biometrics via an integrated Touch ID sensor built right into the power button that resides to the right side of the Touch Bar.
The Touch Bar
This new feature is unlike any other among today's laptops. Only the MacBook Pro is sporting this feature. This feature lets you do anything from editing photos, answering calls, scrub videos, answering emails and many more.
One of the many cool things of this feature is the DJ Pro software. It allows you to play digital music easily with just using the Touch Bar.
The MacBook Pro is sporting the new butterfly system that really is also impressive. The HP Spectre x360 sports a 1.3 mm keyboard that is smaller compared to its predecessor which sports 1.5mm.
In the MacBook Pro, the touch pad is two times larger than its predecessor. The HP Spectre x360's touchpad is 5.5 x 2.5 inches.
The MacBook Pro features sixth generation Intel CPUs, with 2133MHz memory and an AMD Radeon Pro GPU with up to 4 GB VRAM. The HP Spectre x360 is driven by Intel's 7th generation Kaby Lake processors. There are Core i5 and i7 models available, 8 to 16 GB of RAM, and 256 GB to 1 TB of fast PCIe SSD storage.
MacBook Pro can last 10-hours of continuous operation, based on full charge and under optimum operating conditions. HP Spectre x360 can last 15.7 hours.
How Will The 2016 MacBook Pro Take The Crown?
Based on the specs, MacBook pro offers more applications and cutting edge features never to be seen, especially with the Touch Bar and Touch ID. But with CPUs, the HP Spectre x360 is ahead.
What's Next For HP's Spectre Line?
There isn't any official confirmation or any solid information regarding this. But based on the specs and features of the HP Spectre X360, they might need to revolutionize it and bring in more unique features that can only be found with the Spectre line.
Right now, MacBook Pro is considered to be the King, but critics are saying there is still a chance for the HP Spectre X360 to take it, because with new projects, the public has yet to decide if there are no performance issues with the MacBook Pro.
