Apple’s New Base Model MacBook Pro Is 83% Faster Than Its Predecessor

Apple Kills Off the Last Non-Touchbar MacBook Pros, Discounts MacBook Air

Apple impressed us this week with the updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar and uses the latest 8th-generation Core quad-core processors from Intel.

A couple of days ago, Apple just refreshed the base model 13-inch MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and killed off the 12-inch MacBook.

The all-new Apple MacBook Air was refreshed late previous year with this hugely popular machine getting a stunning new look and much sharper Retina display. Both models will retain their specs, including a 1.6GHz dual-core 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM, Intel's UHD Graphics 617, and 128 GB of entry model SSD storage and 256 GB of more costly SSD storage.

The 2019 base MacBook Pro averages a single-core score and a multi-core score of 4,639 and 16,665, respectively.

Ministry of external affairs (MEA) spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, "Our approach is to engage constructively and positively". An official said that relevant issues for both the countries on trade and commerce will be discussed during the meeting.

In the end, just like the previous MacBook Pro, the base 13-inch MacBook Pro has also received a repairability score of 2 out of 10. He also was equipped with a large number of ports, Touch ID and longer battery life.

If you need more storage, you can also get the Apple MacBook Air (256GB) for $1,199. This configuration has Intel's Core i7-8557U, which reportedly is a custom version of its Core i7-8550U processor, with a TDP of 15W and a max Turbo Boost frequency of up to 4.5GHz. But already, the increase in performance in this Geekbench reveals a 60 percent increase compared to the 2017 13-inch MacBook Pro.

"The funeral" 12-inch MacBook upset many users, as it was the lightest and most compact laptop, for which he valued buyers. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro, on the other hand, will run $1,299 normally and $1,199 for college students. If you're looking to buy, you can find these new MacBooks over at Apple's website. The MacBook Air now starts at $1,099, though if you're a college student, you can snag one for $999.
