The new generation
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.
