MacBook Pro 13 ″ vs MacBook Pro 16 ″ specifications comparison

After comparing the 16 ″ 2019 MacBook Pro and the 15 ″ 2019 MacBook Pro, putting side by side the specifications of the newcomer and the model it replaces, it may be useful to make a comparison between the 16 ″ 2019 MacBook Pro and the latest MacBook Pro 13 ″.

These are different machines from various points of view, starting obviously from the size of the display, to switch to the keyboard (butterfly mechanism vs. scissor mechanism), to the battery, to the video card and other elements. The table that we attach puts the two machines side by side, allowing you to have a purely technical view of the features.

From the point of view of portability, the 13 ″ MacBook Pro is obviously lighter (1.337Kg vs 2Kg) and smaller (1.49cm x 30.41cm x 21.24cm) and therefore easier to carry in the bag. From the point of view of GPU and processor power, the 16 ″ obviously wins.
