Revision to MacBook Pro 16" 2019

Ellis Ruckman

== Background and Identification ==
 
Apple’s second MacBook Pro of 2019 brings with it a larger display, upgraded audio hardware, improved thermal performance, and a bigger battery. It doesn’t look too different from the 15” model, but uses a more reliable scissor switch-basedswitches in the keyboard with slightly raised keys compared to the much maligned butterfly keyboard. The bezels in this new model are smaller to make room for the 16” screen, but the 720p webcam remains as before above the display.

== Technical Specs ==In terms of graphics, the laptop uses Intel graphics for light workloads and switches to the AMD Radeon Pro 5300M or 5500M for more demanding tasks. The four Thunderbolt 3 ports support charging with a 96 W power adapter. Unfortunately for any enterprising repair enthusiasts, the flash storage and memory are soldered to the motherboard and (almost) impossible to replace.
