Apple Just Killed My Favorite MacBook Pro

  • Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

The new MacBook Pro 2018 models are available now, with prices starting at 1,799 US-Dollar for the 13-inch and 2,399 Dollar for the 15-inch model. The unit will bring high-end desktop-class graphics processing to MacBook Pro for professional video workflows while also being the first to support Thunderbolt 3 displays. The Iris graphics on the 13-inch Pro with Touch Bar and the AMD GPU on the 15-inch Pro are also a huge step up.

The 13-inch model with Touch Bar and the 15-inch model with Touch Bar have new processors and a few other updates. 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". Both also offer up to 4TB and 2TB of solid state storage respectively.

Targeting editors, VFX artists and colorists - especially users of DaVinci Resolve and its all-in-one toolkit - Blackmagic Design said it has started shipping the Blackmagic eGPU, an external graphics processor for MacBook Pros designed in collaboration with (and available exclusively through) Apple.

Apple is rumoured to be launching 3 new iPhones this year, but those new iPhones may not be all that Apple is planning to release.

Officially, the 2015 MacBook Pro was superseded in late 2016 by the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

Apple says the new MacBook Pro models are part of the company's Back to School promotion starting in the USA from Tuesday, available to college students, their parents, faculty and staff through the Apple Education Store. Two Apple Watch models are predicted; one with a display size of 1.57in and another with a larger 1.78in screen.

20 million watched England World Cup victory against Sweden
Sweden have made 140 defensive clearances at Russian Federation 2018, more than any other team . England has not advanced past the quarterfinals since finishing fourth at the 1990 World Cup .

Additionally, Kuo said Apple may release a new low-priced laptop, similar to the MacBook Air, but likely rebranded in a new way. So, connecting your MacBook Pro to this graphics accelerator will grant access to four USB 3.1 Type-A ports, two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and one HDMI.

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

Apple just announced a major upgrade to the MacBook Pro lineup. The quartet also feature the Touch Bar interface and Touch ID authentication, enhanced with a dedicated secure enclave chip, the Apple T2.
