Apple has presented new versions of its MacBook Pro laptops with Touch Bar. The laptops include new cpu’s, an Apple T2 chip, a screen with True Tone function and a keyboard of a new generation.

Apple refers to the keyboard as a ‘third-generation keyboard’, with which it is presumably the successor of the second-generation Butterfly keyboard from the previous MacBook Pros. The manufacturer mentions that the new keyboard is typing quieter, but does not let you know if the keyboards continue to function more often in the long term . Apple repairs the keyboard free of charge for four years after it appears that the keyboards can quickly show defects .

With the specbump, the MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar get an Intel Core processor of the eighth generation. The 15 “model is a hexacore and the 13” model has a quadcore. Presumably the maximum is the Core i7-8559U for the 13 “and the Core i9-8950HK for the 15”.

The 15 “version also has an option for 32GB memory and a ssd of 4TB, while the 13” version has an SSD of a maximum of 2TB. The Apple T2 chip to send the fingerprint scanner from the iMac Pro is also included in the new laptops.

The screen has received support for True Tone, Apple’s technology to adjust the color temperature of the screen to the ambient light. Among other things, recent iPhones and iPads have that function too.

The prices of the new models in dollars are unchanged, from 1799 dollars for the 13 “variant and from 2399 dollars for the 15” variant. The cheapest versions are now available in the Netherlands for 1997 and 2797 euros, but it is unknown if they change.

Apple has not announced other variants of its laptops, such as the MacBook Pro without Touch Bar and the MacBook Air. According to a recent rumor, they would come this fall. Apple stops selling the MacBook Pro from 2015. That is the most recent model with USB ports and a non-Butterfly keyboard.

Update, 17.50 : The 15 “MacBook Pro comes with a Radeon Pro RX 555X or 650X, both with 4GB gddr5 The Radeon RX 500X series is a rebrand of the 500 series The 13” laptop gets an Iris Plus Graphics 640 or 655.

Furthermore, it is clear that the Macbook Pro of 2015 is no longer available. This was popular with many users, among other things because of the keyboard, the variety of ports and the MagSafe connection.
