Apple unveils its new MacBook
Cupertino tech giant Apple unveiled new MacBooks with the M2 Pro and M2 Max chips earlier than expected. Apple unveiled the MacBooks on January 17. The company has used Intel chips in MacBooks since the beginning. In 2020, the company decided to use semiconductors of its own design. As part of this, several devices with updated versions of the M2 chip were launched last year. Apple claims that the M2 Pro chip has 20% more transistors than the M1 Pro chip and twice as many transistors as the M2 chip. As a result, heavy software like Adobe Photoshop will run faster than ever.
Information about new MacBook Pro models started surfacing months ago. However, the company pushed back the unveiling of the devices to early 2023 due to a supply shortage, including at the factory. It also took time to bring the device to market, mainly due to a delay in chip supply. Apple’s reputation for unveiling new devices on time has been called into question. There have been discussions and criticisms.
Running on the M2 Pro chip, the MacBook has an 8-core processor, 10-core GPU (graphics processing unit), 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage. On the other hand, the MacBook running on the M2 Max chip has a 10-core CPU, 16-core GPU with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The 14- and 15-inch MacBooks have Thunderbolt 4 ports as well as a USB and HDMI port each.
According to Apple, the new MacBook model comes with the latest “WiFi 6-E” standard wireless networking technology so you can use high-speed internet. The new Mac mini will be available starting at $599. Additionally, pricing for 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro devices with new chips starts from $1,199. Compared to that, the 13-inch model with the M2 chip costs a little less. The device can be purchased from $1,299. They can be collected from January 24.
