Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Here's the pick of the offers.

The new models are available in silver or space gray now online and in Apple's retail stores. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading.

Apple's updated 2018 MacBook Pro lineup should please a lot of professional users thanks to the new powerful internals that they now ship with.

The computer's Retina Display with True Tone delivers an unmatched viewing experience, with 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide color gamut. Apple's website doesn't address the new keyboard's performance or whether the issues experienced with earlier models have been resolved.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called the move "a new crime against humanity " and called on the global community to intervene. Mahmud Abu Ataya, 25, who recently suffered a leg wound east of Gaza City, said: "I am leaving to be cared for overseas ".


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. So we've all just been blindsided by the fact Apple has just unveiled a new MacBook Pro, promising it to be faster and packed with even more features than before. With its recommitment to pro users at a special media event in the spring of 2017, it seemed like Apple had gotten the message, but it would need to walk the walk.

An eGPU is an enclosure that houses a graphics card, and you can plug it into a MacBook Pro with a USB-C cable, just like you would plug in your laptop's charger.

The previous versions of the keyboard have been a pain-point for customers and Apple for their lack of reliability since the switch to the newer, thinner butterfly keys, about which there are now multiple lawsuits. Not updated today are the MacBook Air, 12-inch MacBook and the 13-inch MacBook Pro without the Touchbar - those models all still use older CPUs. "The company also says its 15" wonders will all come with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory for configurations with Radeon Pro discrete graphics, up from 2 GB in lower-end discrete graphics configurations of the past. If, on the other hand, you're someone who thinks Apple made some poor choices in its design of this generation of MacBook Pro... this is still fundamentally the 2016 MacBook Pro design. Or, for the digital hoarders among us, a nice storage bump with capacity of both the 13- and 15-inch offerings doubling to 2TB or 4TB, respectively.
