Apple announce new 16″ MacBook Pro

Designed for those who defy limits and change the world, the new MacBook Pro is by far the most powerful notebook we’ve ever made.

Apple have unveiled a new 16″ MacBook Pro overnight, replacing the 15″ version entirely in their popular laptop lineup.

The new 16″ display is not only larger in size but has a higher 226ppi pixel density with a resolution of 3072 x 1920. The largest mobile Retina Display yet it’s also brighter at 500 nits and has a P3 wide colour gamut, which will mean a lot to the right people. (ie. Not me)

Available immediately the new version retains similar physical dimensions as its predecessor. In addition to the larger screen real-estate the new model brings updated Intel Coffee Lake processors, a new sound system, redesigned keyboard switch (yes again), larger 100Wh battery and improved GPUs.

There are two standard configurations available from Apple different mostly in their choice of CPU & GPU options.

The Core i7 2.6GHz (6-core), AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4GB starts at A$3,799 and also includes a 512GB SSD & 16GB DDR4 RAM.

A more expensive Core i9 2.3GHz (8-core) with AMD 5500M 4GB GPU, 1TB SSD & 16GB DDR4 model is available starting at A$4,399.

Both are available immediately for purchase and are shipping within the next 3-5 days.
