143

Apple on Thursday updated the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro with a spec bump refresh. These new notebooks can also compile code faster and run multiple virtual machines and test environments easier than before. The laptops feature Intel’s latest eighth-generation processors, with a six-core option on the 15-inch model. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro can also be specced with up to 32 GB RAM, with a DDR4 configuration. The new 13- and 15-inch models are available for order.

Starting at Rs 149,900 and Rs 199,900 respectively, the updated 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar will be available at select Apple Authorised Resellers later this month, the company said in a statement.

The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we’ve ever made,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing.

The shift from LPDDR3 to DDR4 RAM to enable 32 GB RAM option theoretically means there would be a negative battery life hit. However, via TechCrunch, Apple has actually increased the battery capacity by 7.7 watt-hours in these models to compensate and an average user should see the same battery life on the 2018 MacBook Pro as they did on the previous generation.
