Apple to stop selling 2015 MacBook Pro with old-style keyboard, legacy ports

7189322218_e94b5edd4e_k-640x426

Apple will likely announce a new iWatch, Mac Mini, Macbook Air, Mac Pro, iPad Pro and three different iphones this fall.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro now tops out at 2 TB of SSD storage, a 2.7 GHz (4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost) i7 quad-core processor, and 16 GB of RAM. This is something which was previously exclusive to 12-inch MacBook users, the Leather Sleeve.

The 15-inch models feature 16GB of more powerful DDR4 RAM and the six-core i7 processor with regular speeds up to 2.6GHz and turbo of up to 4.3GHz. Apple is also giving users more flexibility by allowing them to add 2TB SSD on the 13-inch model, and 4TB SSD on the 15-inch variant.

Prices in the USA for the new MacBook Pros start at $1,799 for the 13-inch model, $2,399 for the 15-incher. And Apple is apparently due to refresh pretty much all of its hardware line-up, with new Apple Watches, iPads, Macs and the firm's long-delayed AirPower charger due to arrive later this year. The difference in travel between the old and new models is 1.3mm and 0.7mm, which is pretty significant. In fact, if you are running DaVinci Resolve 15 you can expect increased performance for editing with more real time effects, color corrections with more nodes and ResolveFX such as film grain, light rays, blurs and more.

Kavanaugh begins Senate charm offensive as Democrats roll out opposition strategy
Kavanaugh could be the needed fifth vote to overturn the 45-year precedents upholding a woman's right to an abortion . But the 42% who said that abortion should be legal in all or most cases overwhelmingly voted for Doug Jones - at 81%.

An eGPU is an enclosure that houses a graphics card, and you can plug it into a MacBook Pro with a USB-C cable, just like you would plug in your laptop's charger. Perhaps the 11-inch model will be the same size of smaller than the previous gen, as is often the case with new smartphone generations.

One big update is that Apple has a "third-generation keyboard" that Apple says is capable of quieter typing. Separately, the Cupertino company is touting the Apple T2 security chip, which was first introduced on the iMac Pro - it is said to deliver "enhanced system security with support for secure boot and on-the-fly encrypted storage, and also brings "Hey Siri" to the Mac for the first time".

Already the most popular notebook for developers around the world, the new MacBook Pro can compile code faster and run multiple virtual machines and test environments easier than before.

The screens and Touch Bars on these notebooks now incorporate Apple's True Tone display technology to shift white points in response to ambient lighting.
