It’s here. We’ve been waiting and the time has come. Apple has announced a new update to the MacBook Pro line-up. The refresh includes new Hawsell chips with blazing performance. But alongside that we also get the new Intel Iris graphics, ditching the Intel HD Graphics chip found inside previously.
The 13 inch model ships with 9 hours battery and the 15 inch 8 hours. Both come with the faster PCI Express solid state drives and Thunderbolt 2. 802.11ac WiFi and the 15 inch variants ship with the GeForce GT 750M video card, making these machines sleek and fast.
Both the computers now weigh less than 3lbs and the 13 inch MacBook Pro starts at a cheaper $1299 with a dual-core 2.4GHz Core i5, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. The 15 inch starts at $1,999 and ships with a quad-core 2.4GHz Core i7 and 8GB of RAM. Both available today.
