MacBook Pro 2018 Debuts, With New CPU, True Tone Screen, Silent Keyboard

By James A.

Without an announcement, without hype or teasing, Apple announced today the MacBook Pro 2018, in two versions: 13 inch and 15 inch. The updated MacBook Pro comes with a new CPU, more memory, True Tone displays and changes brought to the keyboard. We detailed them below.

The 13 inch version of the device is supposed to be two times faster than the previous gen model, while the 15 inch MacBook Pro 2018 is 70% faster. If you pick the smaller unit, you can get it with a quad core Core i5 or Core i7, up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 2 TB of SSD storage. Graphics are supplied by Intel Iris Plus 655 with 128 MB of eDRAM.

The 15 inch MacBook Pro is more powerful, with up to 8th gen Core i7 or Core i9 CPUs, plus up to 32 GB of RAM. Up to 4 TB of SSD storage are here, with Radeon Pro graphics with 4 GB of memory in the mix. As we mentioned above, there’s True Tone tech here, both for the screen and Touch Bar. This was inaugurated by the iPad and iPhone and it finally reached the laptops.

 

Apple promises 500 nits of brightness and P3 wide color gamut for the new screens. Security is also paramount here, courtesy of the Apple T2 chip, which saw the light of day on the iMac Pro. Secure boot and on the fly encryption is here too. “Hey Siri” is thus available. A major change has to do with the third gen keyboard with “quieter typing” according to Apple.

This means that the keyboard has been softened and the butterfly key mechanism has been tweaked. Apple did run into some problems with keyboards on MacBook Pro models, with a bunch of unhappy owners. Connectivity includes Thunderbolt 3 via USB Type-C, offering support for up to two 5K displays or up to four external GPUs. The design is a sleek aluminum unibody one, as expected and the color choice is Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black.

As far as the prices go, you pay $1799 for the 13 incher and $2399 for the 15 incher.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Full Review of The Lenovo X1 Carbon Laptop (6th Gen)

By Tim

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the 14 inch Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen , 14 inch laptop/notebook. This is a high end business class device that is perfect for large business and productivity.

The display is simply stellar, the available options are great and the price, while skyhigh will not scare off a major corporate IT department because the payback in productivity and the quality of the machine itself is excellent.

The battery life is good, the keyboard is beyond good, simply put, it is great! Certainly this is not a gaming laptop/notebook, but this is for getting work done!

I am not going to bore you with the specs, Andrew covers all of that in the video, so watch the video and subscribe to his channel to see great tech reviews that pull no punches!

Apple recently registered new iPads and MacBooks in Eurasia region

By Radu Iorga

Apple seems to be preparing more gadgets than expected this year and aside from the iPhone trio happening in the fall, they also have a few MacBooks and iPads coming. Turns out that the Cupertino firm registered new such products with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC).

These filings usually come just a few weeks ahead of new product announcements, but that’s not a general rule. Apple is supposed to introduce a new iPad Pro with Face ID this year. It should also have slim bezels, no Home button and the latest Apple A series CPU, according to leaks. MacBooks are also overdue for the next months. The latest Apple filings in the Eurasian database cover 5 new iPads and 5 Mac models.

Keeping a track record of things, 9to5Mac writes that back in august 2016 Apple filed a trademark for the iPhone 7, Apple Watch Series 2, Apple Watch Series 1 and AirPods. all of the products came to life just weeks later. Ahead of WWDC 2017 the filings also revealed the Magic Keyboard, new MacBooks and iPads. This means that the filings are a pretty sure and consistent source when it comes to such info.

Oddly enough it failed this year, when Apple filed almost a dozen new iPhone model identifiers and launched zilch. They may also be trying to confuse speculants of stock info and other such people. We’re still seeing September as the ideal time frame for the release, with the macOS Mojave and iOS 12 on board. I’m also curious about a brand new Apple Pencil and new desktops.

Also, Apple better fix the keyboard on the MacBooks…
