Apple MacBook Pro updated, now faster than ever before

new-macbook-proIt sure makes perfect sense that each subsequent generational update of a particular piece of hardware would be better and faster than its predecessor, which is why it is far from surprising that the new Apple MacBook Pro is the fastest model of its kind to date. Now it will boast up to 6-core processors and a maximum of 32GB of RAM, in addition to True Tone Display and the highly rated Apple T2 chip. Let us check out what other goodies have been thrown into the mix for the updated MacBook Pro.

 The most advanced Mac notebook to date, the new MacBook Pro models will sport the Touch Bar while featuring 8th-generation Intel Core processors. The 15-inch model will carry Intel’s 6-core processor that is touted to deliver up to 70% faster performance, while the 13-inch model will sport a quad-core processor that delivers up to two times faster performance, making both models perfect when it comes to manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or handling advanced image processing or film editing.

Not only that, there is an improved third-generation keyboard that ensures quieter typing no matter the task, while the powerful Radeon Pro graphics chipset is more than capable of letting you enjoy some games in between work breaks. The generously sized Force Touch trackpad is ideal to work with, accompanied by the revolutionary Touch Bar and Touch ID, dynamic stereo speakers, quiet Apple-designed cooling system and Thunderbolt 3 that paves the way for easy data transfer, charging and hooking up to a couple of 5K displays or a quartet of external GPUs.

Not only that, you have up to 4TB of extremely speedy SSD storage, while the Apple T2 chip that debuted in the iMac Pro also makes its presence felt here, delivering enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage. Expect to fork out $1,799 and $2,399 for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models, respectively.
