13-inch Macbook Pro Overview

This new 13-inch Macbook Pro is the most recent one to replace the butterfly keyboard with Magic Keyboard after 16-inch Macbook Pro. There were a lot of complaints regarding the butterfly or scissor-switch keywords and Apple replaced all the laptops that had used the butterfly keyboard. Its an end of an era.


Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing stated, “Today we’re adding the new Magic Keyboard, doubling the standard storage, and boosting performance, making the 13-inch MacBook Pro an even better value for our customers.

Apart from the keyboard, there are few minor upgrades in the 13-inch Macbook Pro from the previous one. There is no change in the design. Apple is never fond of changing the design of its products regularly, either on laptops or in iPhone models. We can see the thick bezels all around the display of this 13-inch Macbook Pro. On the keyboard, we have now dedicated ESC key and touch bar as well as fingerprint scanner still make a presence.

Talking about the performance power, 13-inch Macbook Pro is powered by the latest 10th-Gen Intel Core processors on board.  The base variant of this laptop is powered by 16GB of 2133MHz RAM but it can be upgraded up to 32GB of faster, 3733MHz LPDDR4x RAM. And the handy upgrade is even the base model now has 256GB of SSD storage and the storage can be increased up to 4TB.
