Apple's new MacBook Pros get a much-needed performance boost

Apple's new MacBook Pros get a much-needed performance boost”

Apple's MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is now more powerful.

Apple has officially announced its 2018 edition MacBook Pro models, featuring the latest Intel 8th generation processors for greater performance and several improvements with respect to efficiency.

The laptops will also have a new "Hey Siri" capability that allows people to trigger Apple's voice assistant without having to hit a combination of keys beforehand, and will feature the True Tone adaptive display technology previously seen on the company's mobile devices. The new models ship with up to 32 GB RAM, a redesigned keyboard, new processors, and more.

Trump arrives in 'hot spot' Britain, questioning May's Brexit plan
Some British citizens are even more distressed about Trump than they are about the U.K.'s own feverish political turmoil. A 20-foot-tall blimp depicting President Trump as a cartoon baby stands inflated in London's Bingfield Park.

The new computers also feature the new Apple T2 chip, which was first used in last year's high-end iMac Pro. The Notebooks are available for order on www.apple.com and would come to select Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers later this week. The loud keyboard was one of the first things I noticed when I started using my 2016 MacBook Pro. The Core i7 models are clocked at 2.7 (4.5GHz with Turbo Boost) while the integrated Iris Plus 655 graphics receives a bump to 128MB eDRAM - double the amount from the previous models. Apple doesn't specifically say whether the new generation of "butterfly" keyboards solves that annoying problem, which prompted Apple to announce a free fix program last month, but it does claim they are much quieter.

The firm is also adding a True Tone display to these, the adaptive display that Apple ships with its iPad Pros.

Apple is responding to some of the complaints about the MacBook Pro with the release of new models Thursday.

Thai Soccer Team Boys Evacuated From Cave By Rescue Team
The boys and the coach will dive out of the cave one at a time, each accompanied by a member of a team of global and Thai divers. Officials had said earlier that helicopters were on standby to take anyone rescued from the cave to a hospital .

The 13-inch model with Touch Bar can be configured to come with a quad-core Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor clocked at up to 2.7GHz and reaching up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost.

There are still plenty of reasons to hate the new MacBook Pro design, but there are way more USB C accessories and in some cases less need for dongles.

KitGuru Says: While there is certainly something sneaky going on surrounding the MacBook Pro's keyboard issues, it is hard to believe that Apple would not address the issue in a redesign.
