Macbook Pro 13 and 15 finally get refreshed, but not by much
After 2 years, Apple has finally taken the time to refresh their aging macbook pro line up. The refresh is mostly a spec bump and includes a handful of new features. The Macbook Pro 13 inch with touch-bar now finally has an 8th generation processor and can be configured up to 2TB of storage. The 15 inch Macbook Pro now has the option of using the i9 six core processor, up to 32GB of RAM, and 4TB of storage. Both models are said to have quieter keyboard (though that was never the compliant of the older model), ability to use Siri without having to hit any key, and the ability for the screen to automatically change color temperatures based on where you are. Given that there has been a 2 year gap, ideally we would of liked to see a complete redesign. With Microsoft’s surface line and other Windows laptops innovating at a faster pass, its getting harder to justify the premium of a Macbook.
