Which Color iPad Air 2019 Should You Buy 4 Apple Kills Off the Last Non-Touchbar MacBook Pros, Discounts MacBook Air

The 13-inch MacBook Pro takes the position of Apple's entry-level Pro model, with new 8th-generation Intel quad-core processors under the hood.

Thankfully, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is already a part of Apple's Keyboard Service program so you are covered for 4 years for any keyboard-related issues from the date of purchase.

The $1,300 13-inch MBP now comes with a 1.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz), 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of solid state storage.

The teardown also reveals that the MacBook Pro comes with a slightly larger battery than the outgoing model.

The 2019 base MacBook Pro averages a single-core score and a multi-core score of 4,341 and 9,084, respectively.

Magnitude 4.6 earthquake shakes Seattle area
CBS News reports that the natural disaster was the largest in the Seattle area since a 6.1 quake in February 2001. The natural disaster happened at 2:51 a.m. local time in Three Lakes, Wa.

Are you impressed with the new MacBook Pro score?

12-inch MacBook will replace the 13-inch Retina MacBook Air that was released in the fall of 2018 at a lower price.

If you need more storage, you can also get the Apple MacBook Air (256GB) for $1,199.

So far, one Geekbench result has appeared for the 1.7GHz config, showing a score of 4,835 single-core and 15,515 multi-core.

"The funeral" 12-inch MacBook upset many users, as it was the lightest and most compact laptop, for which he valued buyers. Benchmarks results show an 83% increase in speed, but performance-wise, it could be different in real-world usage. Because those hardware upgrades like the Touch Bar are going to sap more power, and Apple needs to maintain the same (claimed) 10 hour battery life. Its starting price is at $1,099 down from $1,199, and discounted to just $999 for students via Apple's education store. Even the 2013 Mac Pro now sports lower SSD prices, with the 1 TB SSD model costing $200 less. If you're looking to buy, you can find these new MacBooks over at Apple's website.
