Apple Boosts the MacBook Pro with Improved Performance

Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

APPLE HAS QUITELY UPDATED its 13in and 15in MacBook Pro laptops with Coffee Lake CPUs, always-on Siri and a new version of the firm's controversial Butterfly keyboard. The jump to 32GB RAM is relatively cheap by Apple's standard at $400.

Apple on Thursday announced new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro which are faster than ever, can compile code faster and run multiple virtual machines and test environments easier than before. There's also a revamped "third generation" keyboard that promises to be quieter and (hopefully) not a fragile.

Apple has updated its MacBook Pro models, with faster processors that will switch performance speeds up several notches.

Apple low key launched a new MacBook Pro line this week, with some high key features that we know you're going to love!

The 13 inch-mode will get the same generation, but it will be quad-core i5 or i7 chips. Finally, Apple also revealed a new eGPU box designed by Blackmagic, containing a Radeon Pro 580 GPU for those in need of some extra graphics power. So yes - the keyboard is technically improved, but we aren't quite certain whether it will fix any of the issues that users had with the previous gen MacBook Pros. With the Apple T2 chip, MacBook Pro now delivers enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage, and also brings "Hey Siri" to the Mac for the first time.

Jamie Vardy's wife Rebekah, dubbed queen of the WAGS by some of the press this summer, was in attendance to support her husband. I will really do it! "We were saying, "OK, today we will see who will be tired".

Apart from performance enhancement, Apple has also fitted Pro models with True Tone technology which offers more natural viewing experience owing to sensors.

Pre-orders for newer MacBook Pro models have started, and the shipment can be expected as early as tomorrow.

Leather sleeves for the MacBook will now be available in black for the first time apart from Saddle Brown and Midnight Blue.

In Australia the computers start at $2699 for the smaller model and $3499 for the larger version; with all the bells and whistles added, the most expensive version of the new models could cost $10,339, not including optional software. Presumably all of them, because Apple says both models can connect to up to four external GPUs, or two 5K displays.
