Acoustic Performance

Declared noise emission values in accordance with ECMA-109

  Sound Power Level
L W A,m (B)
Sound Pressure Level
Operator Position
L p A,m (dB)
Idle 1.70 (K V =0.25) 9.0
Wireless web 1.70 (K V =0.25) 9.0
  1. L W A,m is the mean A-weighted sound power level, rounded to the nearest 0.05 B.
  2. L p A,m is the mean A-weighted sound pressure level measured at operator position (rounded to the nearest 0.5 dB).
  3. 1 B (bel) = 10 dB (decibel)
  4. K v is the statistical adder for computing upper-limit of A-weighted sound power level.
  5. The quantity, L W A,c (formerly called L W Ad) may be computed from the sum of L W A,m and K v .
  6. The Wireless web test browses 25 popular websites.
  7. Configuration tested: 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB memory, 512GB storage, Radeon Pro 455 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory and automatic graphics switching Intel HD Graphics 530.

  1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes and 1TB = 1 trillion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.
  2. Testing conducted by Apple in October 2016 using preproduction 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7-based 15-inch MacBook Pro systems with a 256GB SSD and 16GB of RAM. The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The iTunes movie playback test measures battery life by playing back HD 1080p content with display brightness set to 12 clicks from bottom or 75%. The standby test measures battery life by allowing a system, connected to a wireless network and signed in to an iCloud account, to enter standby mode with Safari and Mail applications launched and all system settings left at default. Battery life varies by use and configuration. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information.
  3. Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.
  4. Siri may not be available in all languages or in all areas, and features may vary by area.
  5. Pages, Numbers, and Keynote are free on the Mac App Store for qualifying Mac computers purchased on or after October 1, 2013. macOS Sierra required. Downloading apps requires an Apple ID.
  6. PVC-free AC power cord available in all regions except India and South Korea.
  7. MacBook Pro achieved a Gold rating from EPEAT in the U.S. and Canada.
