Apple no longer sells the 2015 MacBook Pro

2 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

If you're in the market for a MacBook Pro that doesn't exclusively use USB-C ports, you're out of luck. Today, Apple ceased sales of the 2015 MacBook Pro, its last prosumer laptop to include useful ports, including USB-A, HDMI, and a full-size SD card slot.
The 2015 MacBook Pro was also Apple's last to feature a traditional keyboard. After its release, the company switched over to a newer butterfly keyboard mechanism that has led to some reliability troubles. Just last month, Apple acknowledged that keys on the keyboards were prone to sticking, repeating characters, and becoming...

The latest MacBook Pro boasts what Apple calls a True Tone display. It's a technology that first made its appearance on the iPad Pro, it was subsequently added to devices like the the iPhone 8 , 8 Plus and iPhone X , but now it's landed on Apple's new flagship laptop models.

Apple has a new MacBook pro for 2018

2 monthes ago   |   By WMPoweruser

Apple was rumoured to be refreshing all of its products, including Macs later this year. It turns out that the refreshes were tabled to come sooner, rather than later. Apple today announced the MacBook Pro 2018 with 13 and 15-inch variants for power users and professionals. It isn't a radical redesign to the chassis, users...

Here's how fast the 2018 MacBook Pro 15 will be

Here's how fast the 2018 MacBook Pro 15 will be

2 monthes ago   |   By PC World

With Apple announcing Thursday that it has dropped a 6-core 8th-gen Core i7 8750H into the MacBook Pro 15 there are two things we know for sure. The first is that the boost in performance will be huge. The second: It still won't be faster than the fastest PC laptops. Sure, you could say we're just being haters because we heart PC. But unlike the iPad and iPhone, Apple doesn't make its own CPUs. It relies on the same ones PC laptops have been using since at least April. All of the testing we've done already on Intel's 8th-gen "Kaby Lake R" , the 8th-gen "Kaby Lake G" , and the 8th-gen...

Apple worked with Blackmagic on a new external GPU

Apple worked with Blackmagic on a new external GPU

2 monthes ago   |   By The Verge

To go alongside the newly updated MacBook Pros , Apple is selling a product for users who need more graphic processing power. Apple worked with cinema company Blackmagic on an external GPU based around a Radeon Pro 580 with 8GB of video memory. Apple says it should give 2.8x faster graphics performance on the 15-inch MacBook Pro and 8x faster on the 13-inch.
The Blackmagic eGPU also has two Thunderbolt ports, four USB 3 ports, and one HDMI 2 port, making it a pretty capable docking station as well. It's the first eGPU to support Thunderbolt displays like the 5K LG monitor Apple recommends...

Apple partnered with Blackmagic Design on an external GPU for MacBooks

2 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

Apple announced external GPU support at last year's WWDC, finally rolling out support for the feature back in March. Since then, a handful of manufacturers have brought Thunderbolt 3 functionality to their units, including, notably, Razer back in March.
Alongside the release of new MacBook Pros, the company has taken an extra step toward embracing the tech by giving its seal of approval to a new system from Blackmagic - the simply named Blackmagic eGPU. The company does these kinds of partnerships from time to time - the LG UltraFine 5K Display being perhaps the most notable example.

What to expect from the MacBook Pro's leap to 8th-generation Intel processors

2 monthes ago   |   By Macworld

This past April, when all the high-performance Windows laptops transitioned to Intel's new 8th-generation “Coffee Lake” processors , Apple fans were left scratching their heads. If it offers such a huge boost in performance...why isn't Apple upgrading the MacBook Pro? Well better late than never, as they say. Apple's bumping up the specs of the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro to the 8th-generation Intel chips, plus adding a few other goodies that should help make them tear through your Final Cut and Photoshop tasks.

The MacBook Pro gets its own official Apple leather sleeve

2 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

After years of producing cases for the iPhone and iPad, Apple finally got into the laptop sleeve business late last year. The leather case sported “high-quality European leather with a soft microfiber lining,” along with the obligatory Apple logo and “designed by Apple in California” guarantee. For whatever reason, however, it was a MacBook-only proposition.
That changes today, however. Today's new MacBook Pros mean new MacBook Pro sleeves. They're essentially the same leather/microfiber combo as the standard MacBooks, albeit altered to fit the larger notebooks' footprint.
And like their...

The new MacBook Pro keyboards are quieter, but otherwise unchanged

2 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

Like any other line of work, tech journalists tend to get fixated on details. When Apple showed off its new MacBook Pros at an event this week, the company (and a small army of creative professionals) had a lot to say about specs. A majority of our questions, however, revolved around that third-generation keyboard.
To answer all of your no doubt burning questions on that front, I can say definitively that the keyboard is noticeably quieter than its predecessor. I wasn't able to get a side by side comparison yet (we'll have to save that for the inevitable review), but as someone who uses a...

Apple's MacBook Pro refresh puts the focus back on creative pros

2 monthes ago   |   By TechCrunch

New MacBook Pros seemed like a no-brainer for WWDC. Like the rest of the company's hardware line, however, they were a no-show. Sure, Apple used the opportunity to reaffirm its comment to creative professionals - perhaps most notably in the form of some key macOS updates - but there were no new devices available to take advantage of those new features.
The company is addressing that today with its first major hardware release since its big developer conference. Like Mojave, updates to the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bars find the company tipping its hats to creative pros...
