Apple on Wednesday unveiled an all-new 16-inch MacBook Pro with up to 80 per cent faster performance for Rs 199,900.

Featuring a 16-inch Retina Display, latest 8-core processors, up to 64GB of memory, next-generation graphics with up to 8GB of VRAM and a new advanced thermal design, MacBook Pro is available through Apple Authorised Resellers and will come soon to stores around the world, the company said in a statement.

“With its brilliant 16-inch Retina display, 8-core processors, next-gen pro graphics, even better thermal design, new Magic Keyboard, six-speaker sound system, 100Wh battery, up to 8TB of storage and 64GB of fast memory, the 16-inch MacBook Pro is the world’s best pro notebook,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac and iPad Product Marketing.

The new MacBook Pro doubles the SSD storage to 512GB and 1TB on standard configurations. And for the first time, MacBook Pro can be configured with a staggering 8TB of storage — the largest SSD ever in a notebook.

Featuring a new Magic Keyboard, the 16-inch MacBook Pro also includes a six-speaker sound system, longer battery life, Touch Bar, Touch ID, the Force Touch trackpad and the Apple T2 Security Chip.

Featuring a resolution of 3072×1920 and a higher pixel density of 226 ppi, the 16-inch Retina display delivers nearly 6 million pixels and an even more immersive front-of-screen experience.

The new Magic Keyboard also features a physical Escape key and an inverted-“T” arrangement for the arrow keys — along with Touch Bar and Touch ID — for a keyboard that delivers the best typing experience ever on a Mac notebook.

The MacBook Pro features new AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series graphics – the first 7nm mobile discrete GPUs for pro users.

Paired with GDDR6 video memory and with an 8GB VRAM option for the first time, pro users will be able to tackle GPU-intensive tasks faster than ever, said Apple.

Apple’s all-new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be available for pre-orders starting December 10 in the US, according to an email that the iPhone maker has sent out to customers.

The email was spotted by popular YouTuber Marques Brownlee on Twitter, The Verge reported.

The company first announced the new Mac Pro as well as the Pro Display XDR in June at the annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

According to the media reports, the company had originally announced that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR would be available sometime “this fall”. The email revealed on Saturday is the first confirmation of an actual date.

Notably, Apple’s annoucement email just said that the Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR will be “available to order” on December 10 – given the fact that many users will likely be ordering custom configurations, shipping may take longer, the Verge reported.

The new Mac Pro starts at $5,999 while the Pro Display XDR starts at $4,999.
