Apple teams with Black Magic Design on eGPU for new MacBook Pros

"The Verge says Apple increased the battery capacity of both models to make up for the extra power draw of the new CPUs and the 15" machine's memory subsystem, and the site reports that Apple expects no change in either system's battery life as a result. According to Apple, the updated MacBook Pro 13 should deliver twice the performance of its predecessors with 7th Gen Intel chips.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro now tops out at 2 TB of SSD storage, a 2.7 GHz (4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost) i7 quad-core processor, and 16 GB of RAM.

New Leather Sleeves for MacBook Pro First introduced with MacBook, Apple leather sleeves are now available for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and, for the first time, Black. Ars' Samuel Axon found that the keys are quieter than those on previous MacBook Pros, and they have a less click-y feel that nods to those pre-2016 models.

We can't say until the models show up in the channel, including Apple's own Stores, later this week. 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's updated 2018 MacBook Pro lineup should please a lot of professional users thanks to the new powerful internals that they now ship with.

Upgrading the CPU from 2.6GHz i7 to the 2.9GHz i9 adds $300 and upgrading the memory to 32GB from the standard 16GB added $400 to the cost. The company did, however, update the keyboard that had been causing problems in previous models with a "third-generation" version.

The screens and Touch Bars on these notebooks now incorporate Apple's True Tone display technology to shift white points in response to ambient lighting. "These had previously been available for the 12" MacBook but not for the 13" and 15" line.

Hoping Apple's refreshed MacBook Pro - just announced today - would include a keyboard that can't be damaged by a little dust? Rather than having to hit a keyboard combination to summon Apple's assistant, you'll be able to call out for her on your MacBook Pro, just as you can with an iPhone, iPad, or HomePod. The price of that storage might make you fall over, but these are updates for which power users have been waiting for for far too long.
