The new Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch features interesting upgrades that sets it apart from the previous model with the computer now sporting the 10th generation Intel Processor while also having a doubled storage size but of course all of which comes at a premium price-point.
The two lowest model sports 128GB and 256GB of internal storage while the high-end models sports a much larger 512GB or even larger 1TB storage. And as for the pricing of the four configurations, it ranges between $1,299, $1,499, $1,799 and $1,999.
The two lowest-priced models go from 128GB of storage to 256GB; the midtier model from 256GB to 512GB; and the high-end base configuration from 512GB to 1TB. The new top-end cap for storage is now 4TB, up from the previous 2TB.
Specifications of the new MacBook Pro 13-inch
- The 13-inch MacBook Pro adds 10th-gen Intel CPU options for the two highest-end configs.
- All models double their base storage.
- Ever current MacBook now has the new Magic Keyboard design.
- Cost: $1,299 and up, available to order today.
The lower-variants of the device both have their old eight-generation Intel CPU which isn’t changed compared to the much bigger variant which have the 10th generation processor. Another thing to watch out for is the inclusion of the Magic Keyboard which is what the company is being somehow promoting on all of its devices as of late. This is already found on other existing MacBooks like the MacBook Pro 16-Inch and MacBook Air 13-inch.

There have been leaks in the past that the 10th Gen Intel Switch to being the main source of power for the device and that seems to never be the case. As for the display, we thought just the same way Apple swapped out the displays of the 15-inch for 16-inch display, the same could be possible for the 13-inch being replaced by 14-inch. Other news has it that Apple would in fact be shipping future Mac computers with its own chipset.
