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.
