Apple refreshes its Macbook Pro laptops with 8th gen Intel CPUs

Interestingly, consumers don't have to wait long to purchase them in Malaysia though as these new notebooks are available for order through Apple Malaysia's website.

Plugging in the Blackmagic eGPU to the 13-inch MacBook Pro would actually give you much better performance than any 15-inch MacBook Pro that Apple sells. The new models with Touch Bar boast 8th-generation Intel Core processors, 6-core on the 15-inch edition for up to 70 percent faster performance, and quad-core on the 13-inch for up to two times faster performance.

Beloved by many, the 2015 MacBook Pro had a number of features that have since been changed or have disappeared entirely from new MacBook Pro models.

Today, Apple announced a big update to its Macbook Pro line of computers. Plus Apple is expected to launch updated AirPod headphones and the new AirPower charging mat. The 13-inch MacBook Pro model will come with up to 2TB SSD, while, the 15-inch MacBook Pro will have a 4TB SSD.

Now, Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities says Apple will release three new iPhone models including a slightly cheaper 6.1-inch phone without 3D touch. Intel's latest silicon, display technology borrowed from the iPhone X and iPad Pro, and a blast of extra security all help make these the most powerful Apple laptops ever. The 15-inch receives a six-core i9 capable of 4.8Ghz Turbo Boost mode, and up to 32GB of DDR4 memory. The new chip, T2, which is also installed in the iMac Pro, is capable of activating Siri, a voice assistant, by saying "Hey Siri".

The Retina Displays on both MacBook Pro models also got an upgrade - the company adds the so-called True Tone for more "natural viewing experience". The new iPad Pro models are set to introduce Face ID and an updated bezel-less design, Kuo said, and will come in two sizes: an updated 12.9-inch model and a 11-inch version.

Aside from more power, the updated machines also gain the True Tone colour control system from Apple's iPads, which uses light sensors to adjust the colour temperature of the display to best match the light in your environment. The more interesting accessory, if you can call it that way, is the eGPU (external GPU) for the MacBook Pros. The Touch Bar, the abandonment of MagSafe, a 16GB RAM limit, a reduction in ports, the move to USB-C (requiring dongles to connect old devices), and the low-travel keyboard from the MacBook... people were frustrated by a lot of Apple's choices on these computers.
