Apple unveils new Macbook Pro with great specs/ features and BIG price

The Tame Apple Press has been ovulating with the news Apple has updated its 13-inch and 15-inch Touch Bar MacBook Pros today with Intel's latest eighth-generation chips.

For enhanced security, the MacBook Pro for 2018 is also equipped with Apple's new T2 chip. The eGPU is a custom solution that houses a Radeon Pro 580 graphics processor with 8GB of video memory. Already the most popular notebook for developers around the world, the new MacBook Pro can compile code faster and run multiple virtual machines and test environments easier than before. It still retains a large Force Touch trackpad and in terms of connectivity, both models come with 4x Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports as standard.

APPLE HAS STARTED OFFERING an external GPU (eGPU) created in partnership with Blackmagic to accompany its newly-upgraded MacBook Pros. The laptop can be configured to have as much as 32 GB of RAM, and up to 4TB of super-fast SSD storage.

The device reportedly offers up to 2.8-times faster graphics performance on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, and 8-times faster performance on the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The new Retina display with True Tone technology offer support for the P3 wide colour gamut.

The company said that the Apple T2 chip, first introduced in the iMac Pro, will provide better system security and also bring voice assistant Siri to the Mac for the first time. Apple is allowing buyers to embed up to 2TB SSD, while the 15-inch MacBook Pro buyers can insert up to a 4TB SSD. The 12-inch MacBook also gets new sleeves in the same colors above for $149. The promotion includes a pair of qualifying Beats headphones with the purchase of any eligible Mac or iPad Pro for college, as well as education pricing on Mac, iPad Pro, AppleCare, select accessories and more.

Apple says the new Pros will deliver faster performance for complex simulations and data manipulation. Designed with high-quality leather and a soft microfiber lining for extra protection, the sleeves are a flawless complement to MacBook Pro for users on the go. For instance, if you bought your MacBook Pro 15 or 16 days ago, there's a good chance that the manager will let it go and treat it like a 14-day return. The new Stacks feature organises messy desktops by automatically stacking files into neat groups. You can read the full list of features and changes specs from here.

The Apple-tracking site interviewed some Apple Store staff who told it that managers, within reason, can decide on an individual basis whether to let you exchange your 2017 MacBook Pro for a 2018 model.
