As mentioned in our previous report, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can now be obtained with up to quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core i7. Adding an eGPU to the 13-inch MacBook Pro helps bridge the performance gap with the 15-inch models. The 13-inch model starts at $1,799 and the 15-inch version will set you back $2,399 to start. The 15-inch variant, in particular, is aimed at pros as it is now available with up to 4TB storage, 32GB RAM, and a Core i7 or i9 processor featuring 6 physical cores. This raises question marks as to its utility for the latest 15-inch MacBook Pros with updated AMD Radeon Pro 555X GPU or Radeon Pro 560X Polaris-based architecture. It's responsible for the Secure Enclave coprocessor, along with other features new for the 2018 notebook. Ars' Samuel Axon found that the keys are quieter than those on previous MacBook Pros, and they have a less click-y feel that nods to those pre-2016 models. Finally, the batteries have got a little bigger - 58 watt-hours in the 13-inch and 83.6 watt-hours in the 15-inch - though Apple is quoting the same runtime estimates of about 10 hours wireless internet use. Most notably, Apple has not fully changed the design of the laptops' keyboards, which have drawn serious complaints from consumers who find them unreliable.

Some strengthening is possible, and the depression could become a tropical storm later today or on Friday, July 6. Forecasters said the storm was stationary and that little motion is expected during the next two or three days.
A smaller chassis typically means more conservative components, though Apple hasn't compromised too much on the 13-inch MacBook Pro. The new chip, T2, which is also installed in the iMac Pro, is capable of activating Siri, a voice assistant, by saying "Hey Siri".
The switch to DDR4 chips allows buyers an a 32GB upgrade if 16GB of RAM isn't quite enough. So at best, I can tell you that the keyboard does seem quite a bit less clacky than current MacBooks, though key travel is the same.
