Apple (FINALLY!) refreshes MacBook Pros lineup with 7th-generation Kaby Lake processors

Apple has finally updated the MacBook Pros today at its WWDC event. The main update is the inclusion of the new Kaby-Lake Intel processors in the MacBook Pro line-up. This was the big omission with the announcements of the Touch Bar MacBooks back in the fall. Apple seems to have gotten the message and updated the computers within nine months.

The MacBook now supports up to 1.3 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 3.6 GHz and up to 50 percent faster SSD, and supports up to twice the memory. It weighs two pounds (900 grams approx.) and measures 13.1mm thin.

Meanwhile, the 13-inch MacBook Pro features Kaby Lake processors up to 3.5 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.0 GHz, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro goes up to 3.1 GHz Core i7 with Turbo Boost up to 4.1 GHz. The 15-inch MacBook Pro now comes standard with more powerful discrete graphics with more video memory. Apple also updated the 13-inch MacBook Air with a 1.8 GHz processor.

The 12-inch MacBook now starts at $1,299, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys starts at $1,299 or $1,799 with Touch Bar. The 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar starts at $2,399. The updated MacBook and MacBook Pro are available to order today on apple.com, and will be available to buy in Apple Stores starting on Wednesday, June 7
