The MacBook Pro 2016 is the notebook for which the consumers and tech enthusiasts all over the world have been eagerly waiting for. The current model is more than a year old and feels slightly outdated, especially when companies like Lenovo and HP are releasing sleek, innovative laptops every few months. This article presents you a collection of speculations about the new MacBook Pro 2016.
MacBook Pro 2016 – Processor, RAM, and Storage:
The MacBook Pro will probably come with a 7th-gen Intel Core-i7 quad-core chip based on the latest Kaby Lake architecture. Just like its predecessor, it may sport a 16 GB RAM which should be more than enough for multitasking. The 15.4-inch model of the MacBook Pro will have a minimum of 2GB DDR5 graphics card. The 2015 variant scored 14,423 on Geek bench 3 performance test, and we expect the 2016 variant to beat it by a good margin.
We loved the performance of the Radeon R9 M370X graphics chip on the 2015 model, and we can only expect the 2016 MacBook Pro’s GPU to be much more powerful. Apple also releases a separate model of the MacBook Pro without a discrete graphics card.
The 2015 MacBook Pro sports a Retina display which is simply stunning because of it’s 2880 x 1880 resolution. However, some rumors suggest that its successor may have a 4K display. Because of that, the high resolution drains the battery pretty fast, so Apple has to make a choice between the battery life and a stunning screen.
MacBook Pro 2016 – Keyboard and Touchpad:
Apple’s laptops are known for their fantastic keyboards and touchpad, and we are sure that the 2016 MacBook Pro will continue this legacy. The island-style keyboard will be complete with a useful Function Row and special keys for adjusting the volume and brightness. Also, with any notebook of the MacBook Pro series, you will be able to type comfortably at a speed of 100 words per minute. The 12-inch Force TouchPad on the 2015 model was highly responsive and a pleasure to use, so we expect the touchpad of the latest offering to be equally good or even better.
Battery and Heating Issues:
All MacBook Pro notebooks give over 9 hours of battery life. This is pretty good especially with a Core-i7 CPU, a power-hungry GPU, and a Retina display. We never heard of any serious heating issues with the MacBook Pro notebooks. So, we expected good heat dissipation features in 2016 model.
The next-gen MacBook Pro 2016 will include four USB Type-C ports and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor for enhanced security. Tech analysts are also hoping Apple to replace the 3.5 mm audio jack with a Lightning port. The new MacBook Pro may have an OLED touch bar, but this can cause the laptop’s price to soar.
MacBook Pro 2016 – Bottom Line:
The MacBook Pro 2016 will maintain the slim design and gorgeous screen, with few handy upgrades. The 15-inch model is expected to start from $1,999. Apple will pack their new MacBook Pro with all modern innovations of the notebook world. That’s why new model will be well worth the money.
