Apple upgrades thin and light MacBook

The iMac Pro is expected to come in December with a starting $4,999 price tag, as reported by Engadget. It also comes with a beautifully crisp 27-inch Retina 5K display, flawless working on advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering.

The new model replaces the 9.7 inch iPad Pro, with Apple increasing the size of the display while only marginally increasing the actual size of the tablet.

With the revolutionary Touch Bar™ with Touch ID®, gorgeous 500-nit Retina display, Thunderbolt 3 and incredible performance in a portable design, MacBook Pro is the best pro notebook Apple has ever made. However, it can be configured with an 18-core processor alternative and up to 128GB of EEC RAM, storage of 4TB SSD and Radeon Vega discrete graphics cards including up to 16GB of memory.

Apple also said that the 13 inch MacBook Air will be upgraded to 1.8GHz processor. What really makes it stand out, however, is the computing power that Apple has stuffed in this slim AiO chassis - "up to 18-Core Processors, 22 Teraflops of GPU Performance, Fast Storage and Advanced I/O". The 21.5-inch iMac will have up to 32GB in memory, and the 27-inch will go up to 64GB.

Last but not the least, Apple also took the occasion to showcase its new MacBook line that now have more powerful specifications in the form of the latest Intel chips. Finally, there is also a 10Gb Ethernet port for fast networking. The new iPad Pro is larger with a 10.5-inch display - an upgrade of almost an inch.
