The latest Apple MacBook Pro lineup has finally arrived in India. There are five models- three options for the 13-inch MacBook Pro and two for the 15-inch variant. The cheapest MacBook Pro (13-inch) costs Rs 1,29,900 and doesn't come with the Touch Bar integrated Touch ID. To get the new Touch Bar, you will have to shed a minimum of Rs 1,55,900 with 256GB SSD. The 512GB storage variant costs Rs 1,72,900.
On the other hand, the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro costs Rs 2,05,900 for 256GB storage and Rs 2,41,900 for the 512GB variant respectively.
Featuring an all-metal unibody body, the 13-inch variants are 17 percent thinner and 23 percent less volume than the previous generation and weigh 1.3 kgs. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro, at just 15.5 mm thin, is 14 percent thinner and 20 percent less volume than before and weighs 1.8 kgs.
The Touch ID is also integrated into the power button. Once you enrol your fingerprint in Touch ID on your MacBook Pro, you can quickly unlock your Mac, switch user accounts and make secure purchases with Apple Pay on the web with a single touch.
The Retina display on the new MacBook Pro at 500 nits of brightness, is 67 percent brighter than the previous generation.
Hardware options include sixth-generation dual-core Core i5 with eDRAM, dual-core Core i7 with eDRAM and quad-core Core i7 Intel processors. The new 15-inch MacBook Pro features powerful Radeon Pro discrete graphics delivering up to 2.3 times more performance than the previous generation.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro comes with Intel Iris Graphics. All models feature SSDs with sequential read speeds over 3GBps and Thunderbolt 3, which consolidates data transfer, charging and twice the video bandwidth in a single port — allowing users to drive a 5K display and power their MacBook Pro with a single cable.
