Apple releases new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Magic Keyboard, double the storage, and faster performance
Apple has released an updated 13-inch MacBook Pro, featuring a new Magic Keyboard, double the storage, and faster performance.
Using the Magic Keyboard, first introduced on the 16-inch MacBook Pro and added to MacBook Air in March, the new updated 13-inch MacBook Pro drops the controversial, problem-prone butterfly keyboard mechanism in favour of the scissor switch keyboard design.
It features 10th-generation processors for up to 80 percent faster graphics performance and offers a physical Escape key, along with Touch Bar and Touch ID.
“Whether you’re a college student, a developer, or a creative pro, the 13-inch MacBook Pro delivers powerful performance, a stunning Retina display, and all-day battery life in our most portable pro notebook. Today we’re adding the new Magic Keyboard, doubling the standard storage, and boosting performance, making the 13-inch MacBook Pro an even better value for our customers,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing. “With these updates, our entire notebook lineup features the Magic Keyboard for the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook, offers twice the standard storage than before, and delivers even more performance.”
Starting at $1,299 (US), and $1,199 (US) for education, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is available to order today on apple.com and in the Apple Store app. It will begin arriving to customers and will be in select Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Resellers later this week.
