MacBook pro 2019 price and pros

The new 13inch MacBook Pro now starts at $1,299 that’s the same price as it was previously, but the newer model is significantly better than its predecessor. An older dual-core processor now turned into a quad-core, and the addition of the Touch Bar. However there are rumors that a new 16in MacBook Pro might launch in 2020.

The design are same as the previous generations. The main difference can be seen within the processors, which now extend to Intel’s 8th and 9th generation of chips and offers up to 8 cores for the first time. The entry level laptops will finally have a rest from the 7th-gen dual-core to 8th-gen quad-core processors.
