As the rumors have suggested, at WWDC 2017 Apple refreshed their MacBook Pro line of laptops with more powerful processors, namely Intel’s latest Kaby Lake chipsets.
Alongside the announcement of Kaby Lake Processors, all MacBooks including the 12-inch model will be receiving faster SSDs. Additionally, there is a new configuration of the 13-inch model without TouchBar that starts at a cheaper price of $1,299, while the 15-inch model with TouchBar now has discrete graphics included standard. Other than the small price drop and upgraded processor and SSD, everything else about the laptops stays directly the same.
The 12-inch MacBook now maxes out at up to a 1.3GHz Core i7 processor, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro maxes out at a 3.5GHz Core i7, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro maxes out at a 3.1GHz Core i7 processor.
Even the MacBook Air is getting a much-needed spec boost with a new 1.8GHz Intel Processor, although the company was light on details about what the processor’s other specifications are. Like with the MacBook Pro models, everything else about the Air stays the same.
All of the upgraded MacBook models are available for purchase right now. What do you think about the upgraded specs? Let us know in the comments down below – or on any of our social media pages. Don’t forget to check out all of our WWDC 2017 coverage.
