Apple updates MacBook Pros with 7th-gen Intel Kaby Lake processors
Apple’s controversial MacBook Pros launched to much criticism last fall.
Fans complained about poor battery life (before the issue was fixed), the annoying new #donglelife, the flatter keyboard, outdated specs (compared to Windows 10 laptops), and the Touch Bar.
At WWDC 2017, Apple announced updated 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros with 7th-gen Intel Core processors.
They boast up to 50 percent faster storage.
Aside from the much-needed performance bump, everything else about the MacBook Pros is the same. The refreshed aluminum design, flatter keyboard, massive trackpad, and Retina displays are identical the predecessors.
Battery life is also the same, with up to 10 hours of web browsing, and up to 11 hours of iTunes movie playback.
Both MacBook Pro sizes are available in silver or space gray. The 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,299 without Touch Bar and $1,799 with Touch Bar. The 15-inch with Touch Bar will cost $2,399.
