New MacBook Pro now available in UAE

Hollis Johnson  Business Insider

"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 MacBook Pros start at $1,799 for the 13-inch and $2,399 for the 15-inch.

Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro with Touch Bar range of laptops, offering increased specifications - but in doing so has finally retired the last of its Pro range to have the traditional keyboard and additional ports.

Apple has announced new MacBook Pro models in 13-inch and 15-inch sizes.

They're also the first MacBooks to offer Apple's True Tone display technology, a feature now found on the firm's iPhones and iPads that uses light sensors to automatically adjust the colour temperature of the display to best match your viewing environment.

This new third-generation keyboard wasn't created to solve those issues, Apple says. For graphics, it gets a Radeon Pro discrete graphics with 4GB of GDDR5RAM.

Apple has also put the new T2 chip from its iMac Pro into the MacBook Pro, which handles fingerprint scanning, the Touch Bar and other duties.

Apple Upgrades MacBook Pro With Improved Keyboard, True Tone Display, More

While the MacBook Pros themselves haven't been redesigned, they offer more than just spec bumps.

The Leather Sleeve was an exclusive accessory to the 12-inch MacBook but now Apple is expanding it to the MacBook Pro lineup.

As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7. The price of the 15-inch version is not available yet.

KitGuru Says: While there is certainly something sneaky going on surrounding the MacBook Pro's keyboard issues, it is hard to believe that Apple would not address the issue in a redesign. You can configure that design with a faster CPU, double the memory, and up to eight times the storage space.

Fully loaded with new, eighth-generation Intel 6-core and quad-core processors, up to 32GB of memory for running multiple pro apps, stunning Retina display with True Tone technology, and a Touch Bar for working more productively - the new MackBook Pros really are built for professionals.

All new models are available to order today online and will be at Apple retail stores later this week.

Along with all the hardware upgrades, Apple is bringing the so-called Apple T2 Chip introduced with the iMacs. Jumping with both feet into the 4TB option add a whopping $3,200 to the price tag, taking us to the $6,699.
