Apple has launched its new 13-inch MacBook Pro with upgraded hardware and a new keyboard. For years, Apple has pushed its butterfly keyboard which met with constant complaints from customers. Apple has decided to listen to its users and deliver the new Magic Keyboard.
MacBook Pro 13″ (2020) Specifications
In terms of design and aesthetics, there is very little to distinguish the 13-inch MacBook Pro from the 16-inch version except for the size of course. As for its older version, the new 13-inch MacBook features a much better keyboard dubbed Magic Keyboard. It uses a scissor mechanism with 1mm of key travel which translates to a more comfortable typing experience.
Butterfly Keyboard, bad, Magic Keyboard good.
While the older butterfly keyboard was much thinner and sleek looking, the keyboard didn’t have the right feel for long typing sessions. They also used to break often as dust easily settled under the keys. In the last six months, Apple has replaced its entire MacBooks lineup with the new Magic Keyboard.
As for pure hardware specs, Apple has upgraded the 13-inch MacBook Pro to feature an optional Intel 10th Gen processors starting at a price of $1,299. The base $1,299 model comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of flash storage. For those looking for more horsepower, it just costs an additional $100 to upgrade it to 16GB. The RAM can be upgraded up to 32GB of memory in total. On the other hand, for storage, if you put the money in, you can get it up to 4TB.
Just like its big brother, the 13-inch MacBook Pro ports consist of Thunderbolt/USB-C connectors, along with a headphone jack. The Touch Bar remains the same, along with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the side.
