MacBook vs. MacBook Pro: Which One Should Get Your $1300?

Next up for Apple - software updates, new iPads, a smart speaker, dancing robots and more New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference

Widely expected to launch in March, Apple ended up surprising many fans by launching a different iPad entirely.

Fortunately for the macOS faithful, Apple delivered with three new mainline iMacs, all available for order right now. The improvements reflect Apple's intentions for the iPad Pro to be interpreted as a true productivity-focused device. The 2017 updates offer displays that are 43 percent brighter and support 1 billion colors-they really were stunning in person.

Let's address the elephant in the room first: almost every major laptop vendor that ships devices with Windows 10 has offerings with 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) displays that cost comparably to the MacBook Pro.

The new 10.5-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi only variants are going to be priced at Rs.52,900 for the 64GB model, Rs.60,900 for the 256GB mode, and Rs.76,900 for the 512GB model. The 2017 4K model (which starts at $1,299) features a seventh-generation Core i5 processor, the better screen, and most crucially, Radeon 555 discrete graphics. The Intel's Iris Plus Graphics 540 and 550 have been replaced with the Intel's Iris Plus Graphic 640 and 650. Aside from faster content creation, it's capable of running VR and can support gaming, which simply couldn't be said of the previous 4K iMac.

In fact, the backlash against Apple was so strong that Tim Cook and other executives were forced to confront the criticism head on, with Cook stating the following during a company shareholder meeting earlier this year: "You will see us do more in the pro area".

So what's this new iMac like to use?

As mentioned previously, T-Mobile users will have the option to purchase the iPad Pro online and at retail locations nationwide.

The MacBook comes with a 1.2GHz Intel Core m3 processor, while the MacBook Pro has a faster 2.3GHz Core i5 processor. Further, some of Apple's notebooks will now feature more powerful graphics. Regardless, the new machines with upgraded hardware are in stock and if you wanted to know the performance differences between the previous models and the refreshed ones, here they are. But the entry-level model is an enticing option for current MacBook Air owners who are considering an upgrade. According to Gizmodo, Apple users can now use Apple Pay via the upgraded iMessage app, using the TouchID fingerprint authentication, to quickly send payments all the time. You'll need to move up to the $1,599 version of the MacBook to get a larger 512GB SSD, along with a faster processor. Although 2015 sounds recent, the tech used in those models has been around even longer, and seems to have aged rather quickly. We're now testing the Core m3 version of the MacBook and will report on benchmark and battery life results in a future full review.
