Apple refreshes MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC 2017

Apple refreshes MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC 2017 Apple refreshes MacBook and MacBook Pro at WWDC 2017

That said, it's a minor change. The MacBook now features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 1.3GHz Core i7, with Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz. It had started with a 1.6 GHz processor.

Like the rest of the freshly updated Mac lineup, the MacBook 2017 sees the introduction of 7th generation Intel Kaby Lake processors. We're now on the seventh generation, Kaby Lake. The MacBook now features up to 50 per cent faster solid-state drives and supports up to twice the memory. There is no any major update on the desktop line up from Apple since 2013. But in the last couple of years, it's grown into something much more interesting.

The MacBook Air is far from being exterminated.

Apple is using the most cutting-edge graphics in Macs. It has always been good.

"The 21.5" model starts at €1,349, while the 4K version starts at €1,749.

The display is rough.

The screen itself is also pretty impressive, spanning 27 inches and 14.7 million pixels, with support for more than a billion colors.

That display is also a TN panel. The Wi-Fi-only iPad Pro 12.9-inch is priced at Rs. 65,900 (64GB), Rs. 73,900 (256GB), and Rs. 89,900 (512GB), while there's a premium of Rs. 11,000 for the corresponding Wi+Cellular models.

There are no USB-C ports.

The design is dated. The size however has now budged as the company has managed to squeeze the bezels to incorporate the bigger display that hosts a new technology called ProMotion. It's worth mentioning that because of the faster refresh rate on the new model, the experience is likely to be smoother and quicker than on the older model however so bear that in mind. If you absolutely need macOS, you could maybe justify buying it. If you want to price out different possibilities, I recommend opening several browser windows so you can compare the configurations side by side. There's nothing on the level of iMessage, which keeps people tethered to their iPhones. Apple earlier killed the 11.6-inch MacBook Air.

The new camera in the iPad Pro is 12 shooter with a optical image stabilization for those having trouble holding the 1.05 (or in the 12.9 inch case 1.53) pound device steady.

Apple unveiled several new devices at WWDC 2017, one of which was an update in specs to the iPad Pro 12.9, while another was a slightly redesigned and upgraded successor to the iPad Pro 9.7. Apple's upgraded MacBook and MacBook Pro line are now available and shipping. But it also a fragmented mess that is completely antithetical to Apple's tight control over both its hardware and its software. Finally, the aforementioned Radeon Pro 580 packs 36 compute units for 2,304 stream processors and a peak performance of 5.5 T/FLOPS. It was a wonderful general-consumer laptop for a remarkably long time, but it stood still as the years passed.

Apple is obviously still making tablets and so does Samsung but a lot of other companies have already retired from the race. In addition to the iMac Pro, the rumored home hub virtual assistant was announced and dubbed HomeHub.
