Apple Introduces MacBook Pro Laptops With New Processors & a More Silent Keyboard

The new 13-inch and 15-inch variants get a huge performance boost thanks to Intel's new 8th Generation chips and also add some essential features for professionals, including options with more memory.

The smaller, 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,799 and the larger, 15-inch model at $2,399.

Apple has faced widespread complaints and even a proposed class action lawsuit over allegedly defective keyboards on past MacBook Pro (and MacBook) models. For instance, if you bought your MacBook Pro 15 or 16 days ago, there's a good chance that the manager will let it go and treat it like a 14-day return.

The 2015 MacBook Pro also contained legacy ports that Apple has since abandoned in the newest models: USB-A, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 2 ports, and an SD card slot.

Apple has refreshed the MacBook Pro line with six-core, eight generation Intel Core processors for more power and higher performance. That product, an external GPU, is based around a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of video memory.

Update: Pre-orders are now available at B&H for some configurations. They can also utilize online listing websites such as eBay to see if anyone is selling their 2015 MacBook Pro. The specs centric update will enhance the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro models.

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.

The changes affected the 13-inch and 15-inch laptops Apple in versions of Touch Bar.

The computer's Retina Display with True Tone delivers an unmatched viewing experience, with 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide color gamut.

While Apple isn't saying it, it's a pretty safe bet that the improved key design will result in fewer reports of key failure in this year's model.

Apple wants to clean house and encourage users to buy one of the newest MacBook Pros, all of which were quietly announced today.

Apple leather sleeves are now available for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black.

Less touted, however, was an "improved third-generation keyboard" which only promises to offer a quieter typing experience. That fix program doesn't cover the new models, which is another sign that Apple is confident about the tweaked design.
