Apple has released a new version of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with an upgraded keyboard, processor and memory.
The new laptop has a 1.4GHz quad-core 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor, which can be upgraded to a 2.0GHz quad-core 10th generation Intel Core i5 processor.
It comes in two versions: one with 8GB RAM and 256GB memory and one with either 16GB or 32GB RAM and up to 4TB SSD memory .
Perhaps the most interesting feature we see in the new model is the Magic Keyboard , which replaces the old butterfly keyboard. Its layout is also different with a “natural” Escape key and inverted, “T” shaped arrow keys.
The release of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Magic Keyboard follows that of the 16-inch MacBook Pro with the new keyboard, which replaced the 15-inch MacBook Pro in the company’s lineup. However, rumors that the MacBook Pro 13 ”will be replaced with a larger 14-inch one have not yet come true.
With this release, Apple has greatly increased the value of the MacBook Pro 13 ”: now with 256GB instead of 128GB of memory, the keyboard is better and it only costs $ 100 to upgrade the RAM from 8GB to 16GB (half that of cost old).
For professionals, the most expensive version will definitely be the ideal one. It has 4 instead of 2 Thunderbolt ports, faster processor and more memory.
In terms of RAM, the two cheapest versions have 2.133MHz LPDDR3 memory while the more expensive one has the fastest 3.733MHz LPDDR4X memory.
For the time being, the new MacBook Pro 13 ”is available for orders only on the Apple site, but it will soon be available in physical stores to see it up close before you decide to buy it. The three versions cost $ 1,299, $ 1,499 and $ 1,799 respectively.
