Apple to stop selling 2015 MacBook Pro with old-style keyboard, legacy ports

Apple to stop selling 2015 MacBook Pro with old-style keyboard, legacy ports

In the U.S., the new MacBook Pro models go on sale from Thursday and start at $1,799 for the 13-inch model, with the 15-inch model starting at $2,399.

Both MacBook Pro sizes now incorporate the T2 system-management processor that made its debut with the iMac Pro. The MacBook Pro 13 gets two extra cores with Intel's Kaby Lake-R generation, so the i5 and i7 CPU's now have four cores instead of two while still supporting Hyper-Threading. Previous rumors have suggested this machine could be a 12-inch MacBook, so Apple may be planning to expand the MacBook lineup with an additional low-priced option to replace the MacBook Air.

In the end, if you're a MacBook Pro user who wanted access to the latest generation of Intel processors (including a six-core model!) and 32GB of RAM, this update will be welcome.

For power users, the 4th-generation, quad-core Core i7 chip is just not going to cut it anymore. Storage can be maxed out at 2TB.

They're not cheap though - the 13-inch starts at $1799 (R24,000), and the least powerful 15-inch model will cost $2399 (R32,000).

Apple's computers have never exactly been known for their graphics prowess, but the past year or two the company has taken the opportunity to improve its standing with official support for external GPUs connected via Thunderbolt 3. Ars' Samuel Axon found that the keys are quieter than those on previous MacBook Pros, and they have a less click-y feel that nods to those pre-2016 models. But this time around, Apple has one more surprise. The company said in a press release that the 15-inch model is up to 70 percent faster, while the 13-inch model is twice as fast. Both new models are listed on the India site. It comes in an integrated design that brings high-end desktop class graphics processing to MacBook Pro for professional video workflows, 3D games and immersive VR.

Apple also updated the laptop displays with "True Tone", which the company says will deliver more natural color.

According to the site, customers that ordered any of these newly refreshed MacBook Pro today will be able to receive their purchase from tomorrow onwards.

In addition to the new notebooks, Apple introduced a leather sleeve for the MacBook Pro that is available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue, and Black, which is similar to the leather sleeves available for the MacBook.
