    2 monthes ago - By GSMArena

    Apple just announced a major upgrade to the MacBook Pro lineup. The new 13-inch and 15-inch variants get a huge performance boost thanks to Intel's new 8th Generation chips and also add some essential features for professionals, including options with more memory.
    Let's start with the little guys. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading. According to Apple, the updated MacBook Pro 13 should deliver twice the performance of its predecessors with 7th Gen...

The laptop had built a fierce following despite being several years old, with a vocal section of macOS fans clinging to its full-sized USB-A, HDMI, and other ports. Officially, the 2015 MacBook Pro was superseded in late 2016 by the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar....

    Apple unveils underwhelming MacBook Pro update

    2 monthes ago - By The Next Web

    As we suspected, Apple has announced an update of its two priciest MacBook Pros: the 13-inch and 15-inch laptops with Touch Bars. This move is basically a spec bump with no major or groundbreaking developments, but there are a few nice touches sprinkled in. The 15-inch MacBook Pro is getting a 6-core, 8th generation Intel Core processor, while the 13-inch version now has a quad-core from the same manufacturer. They now also include support for 32GB of system memory and a 4TB SSD. If you have the cash of course, as upgrading to that SSD will put an extra $3,200 on...

    2 monthes ago - By The Verge

    If you're in the market for a MacBook Pro that doesn't exclusively use USB-C ports, you're out of luck. Today, Apple ceased sales of the 2015 MacBook Pro, its last prosumer laptop to include useful ports, including USB-A, HDMI, and a full-size SD card slot.
    The 2015 MacBook Pro was also Apple's last to feature a traditional keyboard. After its release, the company switched over to a newer butterfly keyboard mechanism that has led to some reliability troubles. Just last month, Apple acknowledged that keys on the keyboards were prone to sticking, repeating characters, and becoming...

    In a surprise move, Apple has announced a 2018 refresh to its MacBook Pro line - but only the higher end 13-inch and 15-inch version that includes a Touch Bar. The 13-inch iteration of the Pro that doesn't feature Apple's touch screen strip will not be refreshed this fall, which is a strange move on the tech giant's part. Apple says that the 15-inch MacBook Pro, which starts at $3,199 CAD, is now “up to 70 percent faster” thanks to its 8th-generation six-core either i7 or i9 Intel processor. “Apple has also revamped the MacBook Pro's controversial butterfly keyboard for what the tech giant...

  • The MacBook Pro gets its own official Apple leather sleeve

    2 monthes ago - By TechCrunch

    After years of producing cases for the iPhone and iPad, Apple finally got into the laptop sleeve business late last year. The leather case sported “high-quality European leather with a soft microfiber lining,” along with the obligatory Apple logo and “designed by Apple in California” guarantee. For whatever reason, however, it was a MacBook-only proposition.
    That changes today, however. Today's new MacBook Pros mean new MacBook Pro sleeves. They're essentially the same leather/microfiber combo as the standard MacBooks, albeit altered to fit the larger notebooks' footprint.

    To go alongside the newly updated MacBook Pros , Apple is selling a product for users who need more graphic processing power. Apple worked with cinema company Blackmagic on an external GPU based around a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of video memory.

    The Blackmagic eGPU also has two Thunderbolt ports, four USB 3 ports, and one HDMI 2 port, making it a pretty capable docking station as well. It's the first eGPU to support Thunderbolt displays like the 5K LG monitor Apple recommends...

  • Apple's MacBook Pro refresh puts the focus back on creative pros

    New MacBook Pros seemed like a no-brainer for WWDC. Like the rest of the company's hardware line, however, they were a no-show. Sure, Apple used the opportunity to reaffirm its comment to creative professionals - perhaps most notably in the form of some key macOS updates - but there were no new devices available to take advantage of those new features.
    The company is addressing that today with its first major hardware release since its big developer conference. Like Mojave, updates to the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bars find the company tipping its hats to creative pros...
