16" Macbook Pro

Pretty nice upgrade: https://www.apple.co...macbook-pro-16/

Some highlights:
  • Same starting price as 15" model it replaces
  • Much improved Navi graphics (5500M is around 90% faster then the 560X, and around 40% faster then the Vega20 in gaming)
  • Double the storage on the base model configs (base config now starts at 512GB)
  • Return of the scissor mechanism keyboard should hopefully mean the end of the keyboard reliability issues
  • Return of physical ESC key
  • They let you fully upgrade the GPU on the base model (don't need to get the 8 core model to get the good GPU)

Macbook Air/Pro updates, 12" Macbook discontinued, SSD upgrades less $ on desk...

Not a huge update, but a nice update for quite a few Macs today:
  • 13" MBP now has quad core in all configurations. Touch bar, touch ID, and T2 chip also added to base config.
  • Macbook Air now has true tone display and price dropped to $1100
  • 12" Macbook discontinued (too close to the MBA I guess)
  • Keyboards on new 13" MBP and MBA upgraded to the gen3 gen3.5 (thanks for the clarification Thain) butterfly switches, which means more durability hopefully
  • 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB SSD upgrades are less expensive now on pretty much all Mac desktops (Mac Mini, iMac, iMac Pro, Mac Pro)
