This morning, Apple upgraded the MacBook Pro with the latest 8th and 9th generation Intel processors. The new MacBook Pro also features a modified keyboard design that upgrades the touch bar for the 13-inch MacBook Pro. Currently, the new MacBook Pro 2019 is available on Apple’s official website and will be available for sale upon approval.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro features a 2.4 GHz 4 core 8th generation Core i5 processor with Touch Bar, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 graphics processor, 8GB 2133MHz LPDDR3 memory, starting at a price of $1799.
8 Core MacBook Pro 2019 Model details
The new 8-core processor option is only available for the 15-inch MacBookPro.
15-inch MacBook Pro with 2.3GHz eight-core 9th generation Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz, 512GB SSD, equipped with Radeon Pro 560X graphics processor, 4GB GDDR5 memory, 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 memory, is priced at $2799.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro also comes with a 2.6 GHz six-core 9th gen Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, 256GB SSD, Radeon Pro 555X graphics processor, 4GB GDDR5 memory, 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 memory, priced at $2399.
For such prices, the options do seem ok on paper. But buyers like me who bought the 15 inches 2018 MacBook Pro recently would feel cheated as they won’t get an option to upgrade right away even when they want to! There are no buyback programs and Apple doesn’t actually offer a lucrative way to people to get the full value of their machines.
So guys what do you think? Is this upgrade worth it from the last generation? Or are the performance differences only marginal and not worth buying? Do let us know in the comments section below!
