Apple’s new MacBook Pro 13″ laptop has a huge battery but no screen for a big screen, it’s claimed
Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, which has been launched at a time when the company is trying to turn its fortunes around after a decade of struggling to keep up with rising smartphone prices, has a battery that is twice as big as its predecessor.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro is the first laptop Apple has launched with a battery this big, the company said on Thursday.
The company says the battery is 1.5 times as powerful as its previous 13- and 15-inch laptops.
It’s the first MacBook Pro to feature a display that has a high-definition resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, instead of 1440 x 900.
It’s also the first to have a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor with a maximum of 2.3GHz, which Apple says is “significantly faster” than the Core i7 chip found in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Apple said the 13-incher had a 3,200mAh battery.
The laptop also has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) IPS display, a 1,366 x 768 resolution (full HD) and the ability to take advantage of the integrated webcam and an Apple Pencil stylus.
Apple said it’s offering a $1,999 upgrade to the 13.3-inch model for the $1-2,299 range, and the 13 13.9-inch version for $2,699.
It will be available for pre-order on September 22.
The MacBook Pro has a 12.3mm thick, 17-inch, matte aluminum chassis, which the company says is lighter and thinner than the MacBook Air 13.0-inch.
The battery also has been upgraded to 1,650mAh.
Apple’s Mac OS X Yosemite release has been a huge hit for the company.
The operating system was released on Thursday with a big update that added the ability for users to control their home entertainment devices from their laptops, the Apple Watch and the Apple TV.
