The budget-friendly Chromebook Pro is developing high-end features with every successive model and we can now with no doubt compare it with the well-established Apple’s MacBook Pro 2016.
Apple MacBook Pro 2016 is a 15-inch notebook bearing the power as close to an Apple Desktop. The model is slimmer and lighter with the HWD measurements as 0.61 by 13.75 by 9.48 inches and 3.99 pounds of weight. The keyboard is a very comfortable touch-bar that makes your interaction smoother. It also contains a Touch-id for quicker login and higher security.
MacBooks have always been on the top in terms of its display. MacBook Pro 2016 is also maintaining the consistency and has inherited 2800*1800 retina display of its previous model. There has been a DCI-P3 color gamut which is similar to the one in iPhone 7 and improved 500nit screen brightness.
The ports are updated to USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. There is 16 GB RAM and also storage capacity of 512 GB. It is even equipped with a SSD (which you can upgrade to higher capacity), a very fast processor and graphics chip. The Skylarked processor and the customizable touch bar above the keypad are the highlights of the MacBook.
Samsung Chromebook Pro
The budget-friendly Chromebook pro with its very own chrome OS is a 12.3-inch touchscreen model. It is thin and small with about a half inch of thickness and 2.38 pounds of weight; even more cool and compact than Apple’s MacBook pro.

There is a 32GB internal storage capacity. It contains ports of USB 3.0 version, while we have the updated ports in MacBook pro.
With its very own ‘single Chrome browser’ you can run all the apps available on Google store with stability. This perfect match of android apps and Chrome OS is rare. It has a powerful battery life which lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge. The most alluring feature is its360-degreee screen flip; allowing your Chromebook to get transformed into tablet.
