  • Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

On Apple's website, the 13-inch model of the sleeve will set you back $179.

Here are the pictures Apple provided for the new laptops: Apple also launched new leather sleeves for MacBook Pro laptops.

Apple Watch - Apple is working on two new Apple Watch models for 2018 that will have bigger displays and enhanced heart rate detection features. The larger 15in laptop gains 6-core i7 and i9 processors, replacing the quad-core versions, which Apple says will be 70% faster. But while the updated MacBooks have an "improved third-generation" keyboard that it promises will be quieter, the company has stayed committed to its key design.

Get desktop-class graphics performance on your MacBook Pro with the Blackmagic eGPU. -- Pricing and Availability: The Blackmagic eGPU is available now for $699 United States dollars exclusively from the Apple store and selected Apple retail outlets worldwide. "The 15" MacBook Pro will now offer six-core Coffee Lake CPUs and up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory, while 13" models with Apple's Touch Bar will use four-core Coffee Lake parts with 128 MB of eDRAM on package. Apple sold 19.3 million Macs in 2017, or close to the amount the iPhone maker sold in each of the three prior years.


For those who hate the newest - and now only - Macbook Pro line, thanks to its lack of ports, annoying and flawed butterfly keyboard, and gimmicky Touch Bar; this discontinuation of the 2015 model is Apple's way of saying too bad, this is just the way things are now.

The Retina display on MacBook Pro is now the best Mac notebook display ever. Rather than having to hit a keyboard combination to summon Apple's assistant, you'll be able to call out for her on your MacBook Pro, just as you can with an iPhone, iPad, or HomePod. "The company also says its 15" wonders will all come with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory for configurations with Radeon Pro discrete graphics, up from 2 GB in lower-end discrete graphics configurations of the past. One silver lining of this custom design is the unit runs quietly at as little as 18 dB.

It also means you get the portability of a 13-inch laptop with the option of adding the performance of a larger laptop, or even a full-size desktop. The jump to 32GB RAM is relatively cheap by Apple's standard at $400. Maxing out the storage to the 4 TB SSD is $3,400 or $3,200, depending on which core model you're starting from.
