The new gen­er­a­tion

Australian T3 - - APPLE BITES BACK -

Along with the Mac Pro’s un­veil­ing, most of the other Mac lines have just been up­dated by Ap­ple, now pack­ing the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of In­tel pro­ces­sors. The 12-inch MacBook gets a speed boost (though not a sec­ond USB-C port… we still hold out hope), as do the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros. The Pro line also

gets a new lower-price, en­try-level, 13-inch model with­out the Touch Bar, start­ing at $1,899 – not a bad op­tion at all.

They all get a graph­ics boost too, with the big­gest im­prove­ment com­ing in the 15-inch Pros, nat­u­rally, which get new AMD Radeon GPUs. The 4K and 5K iMac lines got sim­i­lar up­dates, in­clud­ing big graph­ics boosts across the line, as well as tidy pro­ces­sor bumps. Even the ven­er­a­ble MacBook Air got a speed up­date! (We thought this could be the year Ap­ple took it be­hind the wood­shed at last…) Only the Mac Mini was left out – surely it’s time for this to get a rein­ven­tion.
