Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2019, Silver) – MV9A2
The space gray mid 2019 Apple 13.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar delivers an 8th Generation Intel Quad-Core processor, Touch Bar and Touch ID, True Tone display technology, Apple’s T2 security chip, and immersive speakers with wide stereo sound across the entire 13.3″ MacBook Pro lineup. All of this helps to create a more powerful and versatile system system for photographers, coders, video editors, 3D graphic designers, and gamers,.
The Touch Bar places controls right at your fingertips and adapts to different apps to provide useful functions without having to navigate complex menus or memorize keyboard shortcuts. Replacing the function keys in the top row of the keyboard, the Touch Bar features a Retina-quality display and supports multi-touch input.
The power button contains the Touch ID sensor, so you can quickly log into your MacBook Pro using your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID enables a quick, accurate reading of your fingerprint and uses sophisticated algorithms to recognize and match it with the Secure Enclave in the Apple T2 chip with “Hey Siri” functionality.
This system is powered by an 8th Gen Coffee Lake 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 Quad-Core processor that features a burst speed of up to 3.9 GHz, while 8GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. The system memory cannot be upgraded.
The 13.3″ IPS Retina display features a WQXGA 2560 x 1600 screen resolution with a 227 ppi pixel density. It has LED backlighting with a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and it includes support for the P3 wide color gamut. Integrated Intel Iris Graphics 645 delivers a sharp, clear picture, and you’ll also be able to output video to an external display using the system’s Thunderbolt 3 ports, which feature native DisplayPort output. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support one 5K display at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 at 60 Hz, or dual UHD 4K displays at resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz, each of which are able to support over a billion colors. Also supported are dual displays at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz with millions of colors. As True Tone display technology has been added to this MacBook Pro, the system will automatically adjust white balance to match the color temperature of the surrounding light.
For storage of your files, this MacBook Pro is equipped with a 128GB PCIe SSD. If you want to add external peripherals, two Thunderbolt 3 ports support bi-directional transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, while also supporting 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and device charging.

Processor – More Power At Its Cores
With an 8th Gen Intel Core processor, the MacBook Pro reaches higher heights in compute performance, making it ready forr even the toughest tasks. So when you’re powering through pro‑level processing jobs like compiling code, rendering 3D models, adding special effects, layering multiple tracks, or encoding video, you’ll get everything done faster than before.
Memory – Run More, Wait Less
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 13.3″ MacBook Pro can now be configured with up to 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 memory.
Graphics – Eye-Opening Performance
The 13.3″ model with Touch Bar features powerful integrated Intel Plus Graphics 645 with 128MB of embedded DRAM – twice as much as the previous generation – which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most – creating your work.
Desktop-Class Graphics without the Desktop
Blackmagic Design has created two separately-sold external GPUs (eGPUs) for the MacBook Pro, so you can have desktop-class graphics performance without giving up the portability of a notebook. Housed in an all‑in‑one aluminum enclosure, the Blackmagic eGPUs are powerful yet quiet, charge your MacBook Pro using Thunderbolt 3, and have built-in I/O connections to drive both a Thunderbolt 3 display and VR accessories simultaneously. With the Blackmagic eGPU and MacBook Pro, you can accelerate pro apps, create VR content, and enjoy smooth gaming.
Now on every MacBook Pro, the Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use – system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.
Tap It, Hold It, Flick It, Slide It
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness, or slide to rewind while watching a movie.
Just What You Need, Right Where You Need It
Many Mac apps, such as Final Cut Pro X, Photos, Logic Pro X, Mail, and more have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and center. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.
Customize What You Use Most
You can create shortcuts right in your Control Strip and in apps like Mail, Pages, Safari, and Final Cut Pro X to help you work faster and be more productive.
Touch ID – Advanced Security, Right At Your Fingertip
With Touch ID, you can unlock your MacBook Pro in an instant. You can also use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases, quickly access system settings and locked notes, and even switch between users – all with the touch of a finger.
Apple T2 Security Chip
Introducing the Apple T2 chip, a second‑generation custom Mac silicon designed by Apple to make MacBook Pro even more secure. Featured on the 13.3″ model with Touch Bar, the Apple T2 chip includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that provides the foundation for secure boot and encrypted storage capabilities. It also consolidates many discrete controllers, including the system management controller, audio controller, and SSD controller, into one. And the Apple T2 chip brings a familiar voice to MacBook Pro – Hey Siri is always ready to open apps, find documents, play music, or answer your questions.
SSD Storage – Make Quicker Work of Everything
The MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that is fast, with sequential read speeds up to 3.2 GB/s and sequential write speeds up to 2.2 GB/s. The 13.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is available with up to a 2TB SSD – enough space to take even your biggest files with you, like large photo libraries or video projects. So you can boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash. And with the Apple T2 chip, everything is automatically encrypted on the fly.
Thunderbolt 3 – A Powerful & Versatile Port
Thunderbolt 3 combines high bandwidth with the versatility of the USB Type‑C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. Since Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, no matter how you plug in, it’s always right side up.
Display & Audio – Easy On the Eyes, Music To Your Ears
The Retina display in MacBook Pro features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports P3 wide color for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And every MacBook Pro features True Tone technology, so the white balance automatically adjusts to match the color temperature of the light around you for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has a dynamic soundstage that feels and sounds much wider than its physical dimensions imply. Movies are more immersive, music more room-filling, and three built-in mics form directional beams that capture your voice more clearly for FaceTime calls and talking to Siri.
Keyboard and Trackpad – Your Workspace Just Got Quieter
The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism – providing more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. This 13.3″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar now features a keyboard with a quieter typing experience, and the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
