Apple has faced criticism recently for its lack of processor updates on the MacBook Pro line despite most of its Windows PC competitors upgrading their respective models. The 13-inch starts at $1,799 while the 15-inch mode begins at $2,399.

'The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made, ' said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing. The 15-inch model can accommodate a six-core chip that will deliver up to 70% faster performance than the previous model and the 13-inch's quad-core chip will offer two-times faster performance, according to Apple.

"First introduced with MacBook, Apple leather sleeves are now available for the 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pro in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and, for the first time, Black".

While the dimensions and display of the new Macbook Pro are completely unchanged from last year's models, Apple has updated the internal hardware to its most advanced offering yet. The MacBook Pro models ship with macOS High Sierra, but will get a free upgrade to macOS Mojave in the fall. Apple says the chip bolsters security and on-the-fly encrypted storage, as well as letting you summon Siri on the Mac, without you having to press keys on the computer. As for customers that prefer to purchase these notebooks at Apple Authorized Resellers instead, they have to wait slightly longer as we don't have any exact on-ground release date for the time being.

"The MacBook Pro 13 is priced from RM7,499 while the 15" version is priced from RM9,999 in Malaysia.

Isco became Spain's 47th different goal scorer at World Cups, when the Real Madrid player equalised against Morocco . Entering the final matchday, both teams are +1, so whichever team's margin of victory is higher would win Group B.

Inside the 15-inch model is a 6-core Intel Core i7 processor or Core i9 processor clocked at up to 2.9GHz and reaching up to 4.8GHz with Turbo Boost. It still retains a large Force Touch trackpad and in terms of connectivity, both models come with 4x Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports as standard.

But the question is whether the new laptops address one of the biggest complaints people have about the MacBook Pro - a keyboard so delicate it can be brought down by something as small as a muffin crumb.

Apple also updated its embedded ARM chip that controls the Touch Bar, Touch ID, and Siri voice assistant.

Apple has unveiled the new 2018 MacBook Pro models, which look very much the same as their predecessors because all of the changes are under the hood.
