In the new line, the company changed the keyboard mechanism after user complaints.
Apple on Monday introduced an updated version of the MacBook Pro laptop with a modified keyboard, improved performance, and increased memory capacity. The company notes that the standard SSD storage capacity has been doubled to 256 GB.
According to the company, the new MacBook Pro line is available for order at 1299 dollars. The model, created with an educational focus, sells for $ 1,199.
Laptops account for 9 percent of the company’s revenue.
The new keyboard uses a “scissor” mechanism, which is more common in the industry. The manufacturer abandoned the “butterfly” mechanism after users complained that the keys stuck when even small amounts of dust and debris got into the keyboard.
All new-generation laptops are equipped with a Touch ID fingerprint scanner and a T2 chip that checks whether the software installed at the initial boot was hacked and encrypts data on the SSD. The two younger models are equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, and the two older models are equipped with four such ports.
The exact date of the start of sales of the new MacBook Pro 13 is not called, but they have already appeared on the official website of Apple.
