Apple announced today the latest 16-inch high-end MacBook Pro replacing the existing 15-inch lineup. With a’ Magic Keyboard,’ a six-speaker system, up to8-core processor, and up to 64 GB RAM, the new MacBook Pro heralds the return of scissor switch keyboard.
The new keyboard returns a physical Escape key and a key travel of 1 mm. The new MacBook Pro can be fitted with up to 8 TB of SSD storage. Starting at $2399, the new MacBook Pro is available today.
The new MacBook Pro was described in a statement by Apple VP Tom Boger as featuring a “larger display, blazing-fast performance, the biggest battery possible, the best notebook keyboard ever, awesome speakers and massive amounts of storage”.
The new 16-inch screen features a resolution of 3072 quelque 1920 which means it is a 226 pixel-per-inch higher density panel.
The new Magic Keyboard provides a physical Escape key together with the Touch Bar, an inverted T arrow key arrangement. Apple says the new keyboard has a rubber dome designed by Apple with 1 mm travel and a stable feel. Of course, most customers are happy to say goodbye to the uncomfortable / unreliable keyboard design of the butterfly.
Apple says the thermal performance of the new laptop has been improved, which helps keep the CPU and GPU running at full speed for longer. The new models feature 6-and8-core CPUs and up to 64 GB RAM. Up to 2.1 times faster than the previous standard configuration, the new baseline GPUs offer graphic performance.
Apple claims that the new 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s first notebook to offer an internal storage option of 8 TB. The new MacBook Pro comes with 512 GB SSD as standard— double the previous generation.
The new MacBook Pro chassis also features a new speaker design “to bring the most advanced audio experience ever to musicians, podcasters and video editors.”
Today you can buy from the Apple Online Store the new MacBook Pro. It’s going to be in stores later this week.
