Apple updates MacBook Pro with faster performance and new features for pros

Apple updates MacBook Pro with faster performance and new features for pros

According to the site, customers that ordered any of these newly refreshed MacBook Pro today will be able to receive their purchase from tomorrow onwards.

Here's the pick of the offers. While Apple initially boasted that the machine's new butterfly keyboard design resulted in a more stable typing experience, many users have observed the exact opposite. The 2018 MacBook Pros support up to 32GB of RAM, and they're running Intel eighth-generation Core processors. In some DaVinci Resolve 15 performance charts from ZDNet, we can also see the Blackmagic eGPU adds a seven-fold performance boost to the 13-inch MacBook Pro, while the 15-inch MacBook Pro gets a two or three times improvement.

The new notebooks also support up to 32 GB of RAM and include a True Tone display and Touch Bar. The latest 15-inch MacBook Pro that Apple just announced has a quieter keyboard but with the same flat feel.

The 15-inch model of the MacBook Pro lineup can now deliver up to 70 percent faster performance courtesy of the 8th-generation 6-core Intel Core processor. So we've all just been blindsided by the fact Apple has just unveiled a new MacBook Pro, promising it to be faster and packed with even more features than before. Yep, Apple is actually offering a Core i9-equipped variant. Other pricey upgrades include the 32 GB RAM and processor upgrades, although they are all six-core options on the 15-inch model.

The updated MacBook Pros come ahead of a significant product blitz for Apple. The discrete graphics options are AMD Radeon Pro 555X with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM and Radeon Pro 560X with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. What started out as personal preference, however, evolved in some cases to all-out frustration, as some MacBook Pro keyboards began to exhibit sticking or intermittently functional keys. So at best, I can tell you that the keyboard does seem quite a bit less clacky than current MacBooks, though key travel is the same.

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way.

Similar to 15-inch MacBook Pro model, the laptop features True Tone display technology and Apple T2 chip. On Apple's website, the 13-inch model of the sleeve will set you back $179.
