Apple introduces 16 inch MacBook Pro Featured


Global hardware and software maker - and one of the world’s most valuable companies - Apple, today announced its brand new 16” MacBook Pro notebook.

The new device includes a 16" Retina display, the latest 8-core processors, up to 64GB of RAM, AMD Radeon Pro 5000M video with up to 8GB of VRAM, six-speaker sound, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, Force Touch trackpad, T2 Security Chip, up to 8TB of SSD storage, and a new advanced thermal design.

Apple describes it as the most powerful MacBook Pro ever, citing up to 80% faster performance over previous models, and say it is designed for “developers, photographers, filmmakers, scientists, music producers and anyone who relies on a Mac to create their life’s best work.”

The 16" size is new to Apple; previously a 17” MacBook Pro existed, though eventually dropped in favour of 15” and 13” models so the re-introduction of a larger screen is a welcome one for those willing to replace easy portability with increased display real estate.

It’s also Apple's largest notebook Retina display ever with a 3072x1920 resolution - almost six million pixels - and a pixel density of 226ppi. Apple also says each display is individually calibrated in the factory for accurate gamma, white point and primary colours.

The new MacBook Pro features Apple's new Magic Keyboard with a redesigned scissor mechanism and 1mm travel, delivering a more satisfying key feel.

“Our pro customers tell us they want their next MacBook Pro to have a larger display, blazing-fast performance, the biggest battery possible, the best notebook keyboard ever, awesome speakers and massive amounts of storage, and the 16-inch MacBook Pro delivers all of that and more,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing. “With its brilliant 16-inch Retina display, 8-core processors, next-gen pro graphics, even better thermal design, new Magic Keyboard, six-speaker sound system, 100Wh battery, up to 8TB of storage and 64GB of fast memory, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s best pro notebook.”

Pricing begins at RRP $3,799 inc GST and it is available for order today.
