At the WWDC 2017 keynote event in San Jose, California earlier today, Apple has announced updated MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks with faster processors and faster SSDs, while also introducing a new CDN $1,729 13-inch MacBook Pro. “With major updates to iMac, and a refresh of our MacBook and MacBook Pro lines, the Mac is stronger than ever,” said John Ternus, Apple’s vice president of hardware engineering.

“With thin and light designs, powerful performance, amazing displays and all-day battery life, Mac notebooks deliver the world’s best portable computing experience.* MacBook now features faster 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. Weighing just two pounds and measuring 13.1mm thin, MacBook is our thinnest and lightest notebook for all-day, on-the-go computing.”

The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro features Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro goes up to 3.1 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz. The 15-inch MacBook Pro now comes standard with more powerful discrete graphics with more video memory, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro adds a new CDN $1,729 configuration.

In addition, Apple has also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor.

The updated MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are available to order today on Apple.com/ca, and available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7.

Also refreshed was the iMac line, with faster graphics, Kaby Lake processors, Thunderbolt 3, faster SSD storage and brighter Retina displays. The 21.5-inch iMac gets a 4K display and discrete graphics, to start at $1729 CAD.

    Happy I waited this out. Time for a new MacBook Pro.

    MBPs still, STILL, stuck at 16 GB.

    Went to the Coquitlam center store, asked when they are getting them in stock…they don’t know. So, we’ll have to wait…

    Not to thread-hijack, but I’ve been eye-balling the MBP refresh since it debuted last year. I’m considering buying one, as my 2010 MBP is tired and has extensive issues now, but this is a fairly substantial purchase for me and I won’t be able to upgrade again for 6-8 years, most likely. Any guesses on whether the 15″ line will see any major changes soon or any testimony of pro/con evidence for these guys?
    Admittedly, I was hoping for a modest refresh/refinement on the new model or for the previously rumoured cheaper pricing, with similar features. $3500+ is a lot to drop on a laptop! Cheaper was probably a pipe dream all around, but I have to figure that the sub $1500 laptop market is where Apple has the largest slice to gain.
