Hands-on with the new macOS on a Macbook Pro 13-inch model

At WWDC today, Apple provided a sneak peek of the new iMac Pro, an entirely new iMac designed for pro users. The MacBook lineup will get faster SSDs, according to John Ternus, Apple's vice president of hardware engineering.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro price starts from $1,299 and is equipped with a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory, 128GB SSD storage, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640, Touch Bar with Touch ID, 500-nit Retina display and Thunderbolt 3 connections. The Kaby Lake-based MacBook Pro series was much asked for and Apple did deliver it during the recent WWDC 2017.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar will now be priced at Rs 1,54,900 for the 256GB SSD variant and Rs 1,71,900 for the 512GB SSD variant which is Rs 1,000 cheaper than the previous generation.

The new iMac 27-inch with 5K display, 21.5-inch with 4K display, and the typical 21.5-inch model have a price tag of $1,799, $1,299, and $1,099 in that order.

If you were planning on buying a new Mac, now's the time: Apple has just refreshed its iMac and MacBook lines.

Apple's updated iMac and MacBook computers are available immediately online and in stores from tomorrow. The company has added two USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports to all models. (Do you not also dream of working on a high performance desktop computer in the open air?) And, though I wouldn't recommend it (because heat, the elements, etc.), the new iMac's screen is finally bright enough to work in direct sunlight. They still include a performance-boosting 64MB of eDRAM, which gives them a big leg up compared to MacBook Pros from 2015 and earlier. You can spec the Pro with an Intel Xeon with up to 18 cores!Today AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) unveiled the high-performance, power-efficient Radeon™ Pro 500 series graphics, fueling beyond-UHD creativity in All-In-One computing. Whilst the 21.5-inch version can hold up to 32 GB of RAM, the 27-inch version holds up to 64 GB of RAM. You're not going to get a worthwhile VR experience on the graphics found in the current iMac, Mac Mini, or even Mac Pro.

The 13-inch MacBook will start at $1,300. The Most Advanced Graphics Ever in a Mac iMac Pro comes with the new Radeon Pro Vega GPU, the most advanced graphics ever in a Mac.

The iMac Pro has been designed keeping in mind the necessities of professionals who need to work with extensive amounts of data sets and use cases, which require vast processing power and memory capabilities.

Apple has updated its iMacs with faster Kaby Lake processors and support for twice the RAM of previous generation iMacs.
