MacBook Pro updated with 8th-gen Intel Core chipsets

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Apple surprised its fans on Thursday morning with the quiet announcement of the new MacBook Pro models.

Kuo also reckons that the MacBook Pro and iMacs will get a bit of a tweak, notably with eighth-gen Intel Coffee Lake processors. The 13-inch MacBook Pro model will come with up to 2TB SSD, while, the 15-inch MacBook Pro will have a 4TB SSD.

The Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro is powered by a quad-core 8th-generation Intel Core. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models. It is hard to know what exactly will be delivered there but they will undoubtedly deliver improved performance/power efficiency as is always claimed between processor generations.

The Blackmagic eGPU also boasts all the ports you'd expect.

Technically, Apple has admitted only that "a smaller percentage of the keyboards in certain MacBook and MacBook Pro models" have demonstrated the sticky key issue. Apple has to prove to professionals and consumers alike that it cares about the Mac and that it's worth paying its premium prices.

As I've outlined before, the 2015 MacBook Pro offered a great keyboard with lots of cushy travel. Apple continues to insist that only a very small percentage of keyboards fail due to small bits of grit and dust getting stuck in keys (though it made a fix warranty extension program all the same), and I know many people who have run into just this problem with their keyboards.




An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being cancelled - with production stopping as soon as this summer.

The company has also unveiled new leather sleeves for the new MacBook Pro models, in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, and Black (for the first time) colour variants.

The aptly named miniature desktop computer Mac mini may get an update before the year ends. The sentiments shared in his post about the 15-inch Retina Macbook Pro model - titled "The best laptop ever made" - were echoed across the web.

First off, Apple's new MacBook Pros come with True Tone displays that can adapt the screen based on your room temperature.

According to the site, customers that ordered any of these newly refreshed MacBook Pro today will be able to receive their purchase from tomorrow onwards.
