Apple has just unveiled its latest MacBook Pro. The all-new MacBook Pro now features a bigger 16-inch display and will replace the 15-inch MacBook series from the past. The new MacBook comes with a new Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism. The 16-inch MacBook Pro also includes a six-speaker sound system, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, the Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Security Chip.
The 16-inch MacBook Pro uses an advanced thermal architecture that enables the system to run at higher power for sustained periods of time. The fan design features a larger impeller with extended blades along with bigger vents, resulting in a 28% increase in airflow, while the heat sink is 35% larger, enabling significantly more heat dissipation than before. The new MacBook Pro doubles the SSD storage to 512GB and 1TB on standard configurations. It can be configured with a staggering 8TB of storage — the largest SSD ever in a notebook.
Also, the company announced Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. The Mac Pro features workstation-class Xeon processors up to 28 cores, memory system with a massive 1.5TB capacity, 8 PCIe expansion slots and a graphics architecture. Pro Display XDR features a 32-inch Retina 6K display with P3 wide and 10-bit color, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a super wide viewing angle.
