The Most Expensive and Powerful MacBook Pro Now Costs $6,898

The Most Expensive and Powerful MacBook Pro Now Costs $6,898

The current generation of MacBook Pro models has been controversial since it was introduced in late 2016. The 15-inch variant, in particular, is aimed at pros as it is now available with up to 4TB storage, 32GB RAM, and a Core i7 or i9 processor featuring 6 physical cores. It now can be configured with quad-core Intel chips.

Technically, Apple has admitted only that "a smaller percentage of the keyboards in certain MacBook and MacBook Pro models" have demonstrated the sticky key issue. Previous rumors have suggested this machine could be a 12-inch MacBook, so Apple may be planning to expand the MacBook lineup with an additional low-priced option to replace the MacBook Air. Apple has to prove to professionals and consumers alike that it cares about the Mac and that it's worth paying its premium prices.

Here are the pictures Apple provided for the new laptops: Apple also launched new leather sleeves for MacBook Pro laptops. The difference in travel between the old and new models is 1.3mm and 0.7mm, which is pretty significant.

At least for MacBook Pro users, the wait for new products is over now, although the 2018 release of the MacBook Pro 13 and 15 might let down some Mac-fans with high-expectations. Arment argued that the entire 2012-2015 Retina Macbook Pro model was the best laptop Apple ever created, with the mid-2015 one being its peak.

Apple says the new MacBook Pro models are part of the company's Back to School promotion starting in the U.S. from Tuesday, available to college students, their parents, faculty and staff through the Apple Education Store.

Apple has also put the new T2 chip from its iMac Pro into the MacBook Pro, which handles fingerprint scanning, the Touch Bar and other duties. Designed with high-quality leather and a soft microfiber lining for extra protection, the sleeves are a flawless complement to MacBook Pro for users on the go.

Unfortunately, these updates only affect the models with Touch Bars and there's no word as to if or when Apple will update the non-Touch Bar MacBook Pros.

That last tidbit could be annoying if you want to connect more than one monitor though, as you'll either have to use an adapter or buy one of the few monitors that connect via USB-C. A redesign will undoubtedly come along eventually-they always do.
