Apple refreshes MacBook lineup with Kaby Lake

Share

Let's take a detailed look at the India price of the new iPad Pro models, and the MacBook Air, MacBook, MacBook Pro, and iMac updates that were announced in San Jose. What really makes it stand out, however, is the computing power that Apple has stuffed in this slim AiO chassis - "up to 18-Core Processors, 22 Teraflops of GPU Performance, Fast Storage and Advanced I/O".

iMac Pro: Apple's new desktop computer is the most powerful the company has ever produced.

These are just a few of the most potent forces known to man, but none of them are quite as powerful as the new iMac Pro. It'll be the first iMac to feature an Intel Xeon processor - now only found in the ageing Mac Pro (and PC workstations such as Dell's Precision, HP's Z-Series and Lenovo's ThinkStation ranges). The iMac Pro will come with a new AMD Radeon Pro Vega discrete graphics cards with up to 16GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2) memory. The 27-inch Retina display is not only 5K, but can also support 1 billion colours when switched on, making it flawless for video and image production.

Starting with the refreshed lineup, the MacBook now comes loaded with Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz and up to 50 percent faster SSD and supports up to twice the memory.

The iMac Pro's hardware is already quite pricey before you factor in Apple's 5K display, design, and "Apple Tax", so those familiar with the company won't be shocked to learn that this new flagship Mac will start at $5,000 when it launches this December. They also have new I/O ports, specifically up to 2 USB-C ports that support Thunderbolt 3.

Microsoft reveals the Xbox One X, the "most powerful console ever"
Players will now be able to access a real 4K HD resolution at 60fps, as evidenced in the Forza Motorsport 7 stage demo. Even humble games like Minecraft are getting the 4K treatment , as well as a host of updates besides.

Another thing that's stayed the same is price: The MacBook will still start at $1,299 - which will get you a model with a entry-level Core m3 chip and 256 GB of storage - and reach up to $1,949 as you go up the specs ladder.

Finally, Apple also said the MacBook's keyboard has been updated to be more like its equivalent in the MacBook Pro. The desktop will run macOS High Sierra, launching this fall.

The new iMac is claimed to feature the best Mac display ever as it is said to be 43% brighter with a peek brightness of 500 nits.

Configurations for the iMac Pro include up to 4TB of SSD and up to 128GB of ECC memory. Its new design is said to deliver up to 80 per cent more cooling capacity than the iMac, without sacrificing the thin design.

The new 15-inch MacBook Pro is also available today from the Apple Store.
