At the end of May, Apple updated its top versions of the MacBook Pro, and now it’s time to upgrade the entry-level models. In addition, the company also updated MacBook Air laptops.
The basic MacBook Pro model received the most significant update. Now it is finally being offered with the Touch Bar panel, Touch ID sensor and new Intel processors. Instead of a 2-core, 7th-generation Core i5 chip with a 2.3 GHz frequency, which Apple has been offering for more than two years, the new entry-level MacBook Pro now includes a 4-core 8th generation Core i5 processor with a 1.4 GHz frequency (can work with a frequency of up to 3.9 GHz) line Coffee Lake. Another innovation was the use of an improved keyboard with a third-generation butterfly mechanism – just like in the MacBook Pro, which was updated in May. The novelty is offered in two configurations that differ in the capacity of the built-in drive. A modification with a 128 GB SSD is estimated at $ 1,299, while a version with a 256 GB drive costs $ 1,499.
The updated version of MacBook Air has received a display based on Apple True Tone technology, which allows you to automatically adjust the image in accordance with the ambient light to provide the most natural color reproduction. Here, too, uses an improved keyboard. Other specifications have not changed. At the same time, the price of the device has decreased by $ 100 and now amounts to $ 1099 (or $ 999 for students).
