Apple launched its new MacBook Pro series of laptops in 14- and 16-inch display options on Monday, promising a design and performance upgrade.
The 16-inch (2021) model will be available in silver and space gray, with a starting price of $2,499, while the 14-inch Apple MacBook Pro (2021) starts at $1,999. In India, the 14-inch laptop starts at a price of Rs. 1,94,900 (about $2,593). It is also available for education at Rs. 1,75,410 (approximately $2,334).
The new laptops will be available in all countries from October 26.
While the 16-inch model starts at Rs. 2,39,900 (approx $3,192) for regular customers and Rs. 2,15,910 ($2,873) for education.
They are powered by the M1 Pro and M1 Max chipsets. Both chipsets have a 10-core CPU and a 16-core (Pro) and 32-core (Max) GPU respectively.
Apple has added HDMI and SD card ports to the MacBook Pro as well as MagSafe charging.
The new Liquid Retina HDR displays will come with an iPhone-like notch display that can deliver up to 1,600 nits of peak brightness and features ProMotion adaptive refresh rate.
In addition, the camera will have Full HD quality and spatial sound to make them more relevant at the time of video conferencing.
The case is made entirely of aluminum, and Apple claims the new cooling system can move “50% more air” than previous MacBooks with quieter fan speeds.
The chassis also received a modern redesign. The device weighs 4.7 pounds and is 16.8mm thick, with a 16.2-inch screen. The M1 Pro model supports up to two Pro Display XDRs, and the M1 Max configuration can handle up to three in addition to a 4K TV.
Apple claims the 16-inch Pro will deliver 21 hours of video playback on battery power, which is “the longest battery life ever seen in a Mac laptop,” according to the company.
According to Apple, this is the most connectivity we’ve ever seen in a Mac laptop, according to Apple.
Apple says the new processors will be able to deliver significantly more power, but using significantly less power than PC processors.
The tech giant says the new MacBook Pros can last up to 10 hours of battery life, more than previous generations.
