Apple has just unveiled the brand new, smaller 13-inch MacBook Pro 2020. The device is very similar to the 16-inch MacBook Pro that appeared in late 2019, including the greatly improved keyboard.
13-inch MacBook Pro 2020 official
Many people have been waiting for it for months: a smaller version of the 16-inch MacBook Pro that appeared in late 2019. Apple has just unveiled this new model with a press release. The device has the same design as its predecessor, but a number of important improvements.
Features MacBook Pro 2020:
- 13-inch Retina display with True Tone
- Touch Bar with Touch ID
- Improved keyboard
- 8 / 16GB RAM, 256GB storage and new Intel processor
- T2 security chip secures your fingerprint
- Available from 1499 euros
- Will be delivered between May 8 and 11
The most important improvement is undoubtedly the new keyboard. After years of problems with the vulnerable butterfly keyboard, the smaller MacBook Pro is now also switching to a more robust scissors keyboard. This mechanism is much more resistant to crumbs and dust, preventing problems.
Furthermore, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro has twice as much storage as its predecessor. The SSD thus starts at 256GB and you can expand the capacity to a whopping 1TB. The most luxurious version has no less than 4TB of storage capacity onboard. The compact Pro is also equipped with a tenth generation quad-core Intel Core processor, which according to Apple is 2.8 times faster than the previous model.
Greatly improved video card
It doesn’t stop there, because the graphics processor is also improving. According to Apple, the video card of the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2020 is no less than 80 percent more powerful than the previous one. In addition, you can connect the easily transportable laptop to a Pro Display XDR, the high-end monitor that the company released last year.
In terms of design, little changes. The MacBook Pro 2020 appears in two color options: space gray and silver. The Retina display has over 4 million pixels, making the image razor-sharp. Furthermore, the screen has a brightness of 500 Nits. This is especially useful for people who want to start using their Pro for image editing and graphic commands. Of course True Tone is also present.
The new MacBook Pro is equipped with a T2 safety chip. This increases the security, for example by protecting Touch ID data. Your fingerprint is therefore in safe hands with the new powerful laptop. Naturally, the 13-inch Pro runs on macOS Catalina, the most recent version of the operating system.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro 2020 is available immediately for an entry price of 1499 euros. For the most expensive basic model, you put down 2379 euros. If you order the laptop now, you will receive it at home between 8 and 11 May. When ordering, you can expand the basic model to your heart’s content with, for example, more storage capacity. The new MacBook Pro is also available at official Apple outlets. At the moment YourMacStore already has all versions in stock.
