MacBook Pro 16"
MacBook Pro 16"
This Apple MacBook Pro 16" has been fully tested and serviced by our team of tech experts and works like new. There are some signs of previous use, but what fun is a rental if you don’t use it? (laptop shows minor scratches to top and bottom of case) Any signs of previous use are minor and superficial.
All the photos to the left are of the item you would receive so you can see for yourself (yes, we really have someone downstairs photographing every preloved product).
Features: 16" LED-Backlit True Tone Retina display, 1TB PCIe-base SSD storage, 802.11ac WiFi, 16GB 2667MHz DDR4 RAM, Radeon Pro 5500M 4GB + Intel UHD 630 GPU, and an Intel 2.3 GHz Core i9 (i9-9880H) CPU.
Includes: USB cable and the original packaging.
Designed for those who defy limits and change the world, the new MacBook Pro is by far the most powerful notebook we’ve ever made. With an immersive 16-inch Retina display, ultrafast processors, next-generation graphics, the largest battery capacity ever in a MacBook Pro, a new Magic Keyboard and massive storage, it’s the ultimate pro notebook for the ultimate user.
16-inch Retina display for an immersive viewing experience.
Up to an 8-core processor to power through intensive workloads.
Up to 8TB of SSD storage — the highest capacity in any notebook.
Up to 64GB of memory for editing large files and smooth multitasking.
AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics for fast rendering and seamless playback.
Six-speaker sound system and studio-quality mics for dramatic sound and clean recordings.
A big, beautiful workspace. For doing big, beautiful work.
The new MacBook Pro features a stunning 16-inch Retina display — the largest Retina display ever in a Mac notebook. It produces 500 nits of brightness for spectacular highlights and bright whites, while delivering deep blacks thanks to the precise photo alignment of liquid crystal molecules. And the P3 wide colour gamut enables brilliant, true-to-life images and video. So no matter where you are, you’ll see your work in the best possible light.
A mirrorlike enhanced reflector sheet in the backlight reflects over 98 per cent of incident light, allowing MacBook Pro to achieve 500 nits of brightness efficiently.
An Apple-patented metal layer in the TFT maximises the transmittance of the pixels, enhancing brightness and colour uniformity while reducing pixel cross-talk, which can cause visual artefacts.
The oxide thin film transistor (TFT) features 10 times faster pixel charging than the traditional amorphous silicon TFT, and holds the pixel voltage steady during low-frequency power-saving modes, enabling precise resolution and longer battery life.
The narrow-band LED-powered backlight allows MacBook Pro to represent the P3 wide colour gamut for brilliant, true-to-life colour in photos and videos.
Processor and Memory
Working at the speed of thought.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro brings a whole new class of performance to the notebook. Thanks to a more advanced thermal design, the Intel Core i9 processor with up to eight cores and 16 threads of processing power sustains higher performance for longer periods of time — and delivers up to 2.1 times the performance of a quad-core MacBook Pro. So whether you’re layering dozens of tracks and effects, rendering 3D models, or compiling and testing code, you’ll be doing it in no time flat.
More advanced thermal architecture enables faster processing. The thermal architecture in MacBook Pro has been completely redesigned, featuring larger impellers with improved fan blades for optimal airflow and more heat-dispersing fins for more effective cooling. The resulting gain in cooling capacity allows MacBook Pro to deliver up to 12 watts more maximum sustained power.
Up to 64GB of DDR4 memory means more efficient multitasking. The 16-inch MacBook Pro uses fast 2666MHz DDR4 memory — up to 64GB — for smooth performance whether you’re loading hundreds of audio samples, editing billion-pixel images or running multiple virtual machines.
Bending reality takes bandwidth.
The AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series delivers the most graphics horsepower ever in a MacBook Pro. The 16-inch MacBook Pro base model is over twice as fast as the previous-generation base model, for seamless playback and faster rendering of ultra-high-definition video. And with the optional 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, you’ll get up to 80 per cent faster performance when executing tasks like colour grading in DaVinci Resolve compared with the Radeon Pro Vega 20.
There’s magic in a perfect workspace.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro takes workflow efficiency to a new level. The new Magic Keyboard features a refined scissor mechanism with 1 millimetre of travel for a responsive, comfortable and quiet typing experience. The Touch Bar puts powerful shortcuts front and centre, and Touch ID provides fast authentication. A dedicated Escape key allows for quick switching between modes and views. And the inverted-T arrow keys enable fluid navigation whether you’re flying through lines of code, navigating spreadsheets or gaming.
Touch Bar. The commands you need most are exactly where you need them — saving time and keystrokes.
Touch ID. Fast, easy authentication for secure logins and purchases.
Force Touch trackpad. Speed up your workflow with Force click and Multi-Touch gestures.
Bigger bass. Better mic.
MacBook Pro has a big voice. The six-speaker sound system produces room-filling wide stereo sound like you’ve never heard from a notebook before. Dual force-cancelling woofers dramatically reduce system vibration for a clearer, more natural sound and a half-octave lower range to the bass. And the studio-quality three-mic array rivals professional third-party microphones, for creating clean podcasts or music recordings on the go.

Studio-quality three-mic array with high signal-to-noise ratio.
Bring your whole studio with you.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro has up to 8TB of SSD storage — the most available in any notebook. So you can take entire photo or video libraries with you, no matter where you’re heading. And with ultrafast speeds, massive files load in an instant and pro apps launch in a blink.
A battery with a strong work ethic.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro has the highest-capacity battery we’ve ever put in a notebook. The 100-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery not only powers the larger display and delivers higher maximum sustained power, it also provides longer battery life — up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing and video playback. So you’ll have more time to work between charges — whether you’re on or off the grid.
Apple T2 Security Chip
The next generation of security.
Every MacBook Pro is equipped with the Apple T2 Security Chip — our second‑generation custom-engineered Mac silicon designed to make everything you do even more secure. It includes a Secure Enclave coprocessor that powers Touch ID and 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.
The most powerful and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra‑high bandwidth with the remarkable versatility of the USB‑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 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. MacBook Pro is equipped with four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always the right way up.
The power of Mac. Taken further.
Dedicated apps for music, TV and podcasts. Smart new features like Sidecar. Powerful technologies for developers. And your favourite iPad apps, now on Mac.
