I’m a fan of Apple products. So today I’m going to review Apple MacBook pro latest version. Apple today announced a new version for its family of MacBook Pro notebooks. The 15.4-inch screen version now integrates an Intel Core i7 or Core i9 of eighth generation and six cores, up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, up to 4 terabytes of storage and a new Touch Bar (the secondary display next to the keyboard ) with a new security processor, which also integrates Touch ID and the ability to activate Siri on the Mac with a voice command, as in the iPhone .
The display is True Tone, like that of the iPad (it changes the color temperature of the image according to the environment to make it look its best), it has a brightness of 500 nits -the highest offered by the company- and adds graphics AMD Radeon Pro with 4 GB of RAM.
Apple says that in its most advanced configuration achieves up to 70 percent higher performance than the previous model, thanks to the Core i9 that can run in Turbo mode at 4.8 GHz.
The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro includes eighth-generation Core i5 or i7 processors, up to 16 GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus graphics, up to 2 TB of internal storage, the True Tone screen and the same Touch Bar of the larger model.
There will be, this year, hardware upgrade for the MacBook Pro model without Touch Bar.
Both devices include USB-C / Thunderbolt 3 ports (two or four, depending on the model chosen) and Apple says it added a higher capacity battery for this generation of MacBook Pro, although the autonomy is the same (about ten hours of conventional use). ).
Something that the company highlighted for both models is that its keyboard “butterfly” makes less noise than previous versions and that, in theory, does not have the design problems that caused some keys to lock, and that made the company offers from Last June the free replacement of keyboards in models manufactured between 2015 and 2017 .
The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro has a base price ranging from $ 1,299 to $ 1,999, depending on your configuration; the 15-inch model runs from $ 2399 to $ 2799 in the conventional configuration but can reach more than double if the maximum hardware is configured.
I think it’s a great laptop overall. They also fixed the butterfly mechanism switches which annoyed a lot of users in the past. If you use the laptop for basic tasks and some mild editing, I don’t think you have to get the latest one. Unless you do the heavy stuff. At the end of the day, it’s your choice. So good luck.
