The laptop can be configured to have as much as 32 GB of RAM, and up to 4TB of super-fast SSD storage.

The new laptops are aimed at those who need speed when it comes to their work.

The computers start at $1,800 for the smaller model and $2,400 for the larger version; with all the bells and whistles added, the most expensive version of the new models could cost $6,700. So you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location, or enjoy a movie on the go. The updated MacBook Pro lineup includes the 13-inch and 15-inch "Touch Bar" models that pack the latest 8 Generation 6-core Intel Core processors. These machines pack in up to 2 TB and 4 TB of storage, respectively.

'The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made, ' said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing.




Apple says the new Pros will deliver faster performance for complex simulations and data manipulation. What we didn't know was that apparently this will also extend to Apple's Thunderbolt Display, and the LG UltraFine 4K and 5K displays when plugged into the notebooks as well. Apple is allowing buyers to embed up to 2TB SSD, while the 15-inch MacBook Pro buyers can insert up to a 4TB SSD.

Back to School with MacBook Pro The new MacBook Pro is also part of Apple's Back to School promotion starting today and available to college students, their parents, faculty and staff through the Apple Education Store.

"Built-in I/O connections drive a Thunderbolt 3 display, support multiple accessories and charge your MacBook Pro at the same time". "The MacBook Pro 13 pushes a resolution of 2560×1600 while the 15" version does 2880×1800. Familiar iOS apps, including News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home, are now available on the Mac for the first time. You can read the full list of features and changes specs from here.

Apple revolutionised personal technology with the introduction of the Macintosh in 1984.
