Adding an eGPU to the 13-inch MacBook Pro helps bridge the performance gap with the 15-inch models.
The 2018 update of the MacBook Pro line was long overdue, since the competitors in the PC space already updated their lineups with new CPUs months ago. In the United Kingdom, the 13-inch MacBook Pro will start at £1,749 while the 15-inch is £2,349. All of the newest MacBook Pros exclusively feature Thunderbolt 3 ports, which some will appreciate but all will scowl at when they're forced to buy multiple dongles to connect legacy accessories.
The 15-inch models feature 16GB of more powerful DDR4 RAM and the six-core i7 processor with regular speeds up to 2.6GHz and turbo of up to 4.3GHz. Apple cites that the 8th-generation Intel Core processor in these laptops will be "ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing".
Apple has officially discontinued the sale of its 2015 15-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has to prove to professionals and consumers alike that it cares about the Mac and that it's worth paying its premium prices. So yes - the keyboard is technically improved, but we aren't quite certain whether it will fix any of the issues that users had with the previous gen MacBook Pros. The difference in travel between the old and new models is 1.3mm and 0.7mm, which is pretty significant.
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 World Cup reactions of Croatia and England fans
There had been talk earlier on in the tournament that a team could restart if all of the opposition's players had left the pitch. And Gary Southgate , the team's manager, has been coolly running things from the sidelines with the sartorial flair of a Becks .
He also called back to his three iPhones prediction, which suggested that Apple will show off an updated iPhone X with a 5.8in OLED display, a bigger 6.5in iPhone X Plus, and a 6.1in LCD display-equipped mid-range take on the iPhone X. Two Apple Watch models are predicted; one with a display size of 1.57in and another with a larger 1.78in screen. Those Thunderbolt 3 connectors on the 13-inch and 15-inch models can support up to two 5K displays.
While the MacBook Pros themselves haven't been redesigned, they offer more than just spec bumps.
Instead, the third-generation keyboard's tweaks are about making it quieter.
The new computers also feature the new Apple T2 chip, which was first used in last year's high-end iMac Pro.
