Apple Planning Series of Upgrades This Fall

Apple Planning Series of Upgrades This Fall

"The move to DDR4 in the 15" MacBook Pro made me wonder about these systems' battery life, since off-charger endurance was one of the reasons the company cited for sticking with a maximum of 16 GB of lower-density LPDDR3 to begin with in its late-2016 and mid-2017 notebooks.

In the wake of issues with recent-generation MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards, Apple has also updated the keyboard of the new MacBook Pros to a new, quieter third-generation model. However, the base model which starts at RM 7,499 is equipped with quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i5 instead alongside 8GB LPDDR3-2133 RAM, and 256GB solid state drive.

Apple today updated MacBook Pro with faster performance and new pro features, making it the most advanced Mac notebook ever.

For the first time, a Mac gains a True Tone display, previously seen only on iOS devices. And Apple is apparently due to refresh pretty much all of its hardware line-up, with new Apple Watches, iPads, Macs and the firm's long-delayed AirPower charger due to arrive later this year.

HBO must 'change direction' to flourish, says its new boss

Available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black, the sleeve is created to keep your notebook safe. You can also choose between 1TB or 2TB of storage. If they have the money to spend, they can finally get their hands on a MacBook Pro which can easily handle their intensive workload without breaking a sweat. In addition, the Blackmagic eGPU supports Metal graphics technology from Apple, which provides near-direct access to the GPU for maximizing graphics and compute performance with games and applications. But with Apple now having introduced the 2018 MacBook Pro, it seems that Apple now feels the time is right to let the older model go.

As for the Core i7 options, Apple is offering two of those - one that runs on at 2.20 - 4.1GHz and one at 2.6 - 4.3 GHz.

It's also unclear if the new keyboard design will prove less prone to failure than the previous models. Those Thunderbolt 3 connectors on the 13-inch and 15-inch models can support up to two 5K displays.

Apple says the new MacBook Pro models are part of the company's Back to School promotion starting in the USA from Tuesday, available to college students, their parents, faculty and staff through the Apple Education Store. It comes inside a small, compact and non-upgradable enclosure designed with Blackmagic.
