Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More
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.
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.
Nobel widow Liu Xia leaves China after 8 years' house arrest
Working Group on Arbitrary Detention; and Michel Forst, the special rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders. Liu, as has been noted multiple times, is guilty of only having fallen in love with Liu Xiaobo, who she married in 1996.
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.

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.
