Apple has dropped its unpopular butterfly console system in the wake of revealing the new 13-inch Mac Book Pro including a Magic Keyboard for an improved typing experience.
Elsewhere, the new release holds numerous recognizable highlights, including its Thunderbolt 3/USB-C connectors, Touch Bar, Touch ID finger print sensor, just as the arrival of a physical Esc key.
The Magic Keyboard is the most engaging update for most clients. Mac worked rapidly to cycle out the butterfly console, returning to dependable scissor switches for the most recent 16-inch MacBook Pro, and a Magic Keyboard for the Mac Book Air which released in March.
“Whether you’re a college student, a developer, or a creative pro, the 13-inch MacBook Pro delivers powerful performance, a stunning Retina display, and all-day battery life in our most portable pro notebook. Today we’re adding the new Magic Keyboard, doubling the standard storage, and boosting performance, making the 13-inch MacBook Pro an even better value for our customers,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing. “With these updates, our entire notebook lineup features the Magic Keyboard for the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook, offers twice the standard storage than before, and delivers even more performance.”
Customers love the superfast SSDs, with sequential read speeds of up to 3.0GB/s. The 13-inch MacBook Pro now comes with double the storage of the previous generation, with standard storage starting at 256GB all the way up to 1TB, so customers can store even more photos, videos, and files. And for pro users who need even more storage capacity for large photo libraries and video projects, the 13-inch MacBook Pro now offers up to a 4TB SSD.
