Apple is likely to release its 16-inch MacBook Pro on Wednesday and its sales could kick off as early as this week, the media has reported.

The new MacBook Pro is expected to cost “about the same” as the 15-inch model, which starts at $2,399.

Despite several revisions and tweaks, the butterfly keyboard has tarnished the reputation of Apple’s notebook line up due to stuck keys, repeated keystrokes, and other problems, The Verge reported on Tuesday.

Apart from its larger display, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will debut with a “revamped” keyboard that is “designed to be more reliable” than the butterfly- styled keyboards featured on MacBooks since 2016.

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.
