Some days ago, Apple released some new products at their “Hello again” event. One product was the MacBook Pro. Many people were impressed by Apple’s new laptop, but some people have also complained about it. People is complaining about that you can just get a 16GB of RAM version. Apple has answered that too much RAM would have a bad effect on the battery.
A MacRumors reader asked why there isn’t any 32GB RAM version. The answer came from Phil Schiller, Apple’s marketing chief. Look below this text if you want to find out what the answer was:
“Q: The lack of a 32GB BTO option for the new MBPs raised some eyebrows and caused some concerns (me included). Does ~3GBps bandwidth to the SSD make this a moot issue? I.e. memory paging on a 16GB system is so fast that 32GB is not a significant improvement?
Schiller: Thank you for the email. It is a good question. To put more than 16GB of fast RAM into a notebook design at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook. I hope you check out this new generation MacBook Pro, it really is an incredible system.”
Schiller says that it isn’t necessary to put the extra gigabytes of RAM. Apple may have made the MacBook Pro a bit thicker and put in a bigger battery and more RAM. But if you’re not going to play heavy games, 16GB of RAM probably will be enough. Some people also think that Apple could have put in a better processor. It is impossible to make a product that everyone likes. So if you don’t like Apple’s new MacBook Pro, then don’t buy it!
