MacBook Pro 16" and Toon Boom Harmony Animation software

We’ve been talking to our customers and found that, now face-to-face and live-action videos are less viable as a result of more working from home and far less face-to face office time, animated videos are fast becoming the way forward to businesses to create video content. And this is why we are frequently being asked for animation software packages, such as Toon Boom.

We always aim to give our customers what they need, in the best package possible, so we have created the MacBook Pro 16″ built specifically for Toon Boom Harmony.

Macbook Pro 16 Harmony

Toon Boom specialises in animation production, as well as storyboarding software, for creative professionals. It’s used to create film and TV, ads, games, to mention just a few. This high-spec software needs a device that is capable of handling it without any delays or disruption to the creative process, which is why we have built a MacBook Pro 16″ with all the specifications you’ll need to handle the demands of this software, without limitations.

This MacBook Pro 16″ has a 9th Gen Six-Core i7 – 2.6GHz CPU, with 32GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage. Add to that the AMD Radeon Pro 5300M – 4GB graphics card and four Thunderbolt 3 ports for your peripherals and you can tackle pretty much anything Toon Boom can ask of it. The 16″ Retina display with True Tone technology means all your creations will have an immersive viewing experience. Available with options up to 8 Core Intel i9 – 2.4GHz, 4TB SSD, 64GB RAM and Radeon Pro 5600M – 8GB you can achieve all the editing, rendering, and playback capabilities you’ll need.
