Why buy the old MacBook when the new 16-inch MacBook Pro is here

The 16-inch MacBook Pro from Apple has been the subject of debate on several occasions, but its start-up era remains in the dark. The last time we talked about this, we revealed that Apple might have postponed the launch date to 2021, indicating it would take a while to sell to the public a redesigned MacBook Pro. However, the launch of this new device could come much earlier rather than later, according to a distinct analyst, and it could even bear a greater resolution.

Apple just updated the MacBook Pro line last month, adding to the controversial butterfly keyboard design more powerful processors and yet another tweak. Lin is also expecting processor upgrades in September from the MacBook Air and13-inch MacBook Pro. However, there is no word on the 12-inch MacBook that hasn’t seen an update in more than two years (unless you have a fresh gold option).

Apple is set to release a new 16-inch MacBook Pro later this year, according to an industry study from IHS Market released by Forbes.

The study states a resolution of 3072 range1920, up from the panel of 2880 range1800 discovered in the 15-inch laptops of Apple since the first Retina MacBook Pro in 2012. As the 15-inch MacBook Pro has been refreshed with fresh processors and an updated keyboard design this year, individuals are expecting the 16-inch to forge a fresh, distinct level in Apple’s product lineup. This indicates a $3000 price point.

IHS Markit claims the latest 16-inch laptop has a September 2019 production target with a production rate of approximately 250,000 units per month. The panel would still be LCD (no OLED as stated earlier) and allegedly produced by LG.

TF Industries Ming-Chi Kuo first floated the redesigned MacBook Pro form factor in February. It was defined as an all-new designed 16-16.5-inch MacBook Pro.

At the moment, Kuo also said that with the addition of a 32 GB RAM option, the 13-inch MacBook Pro would receive a spec boost.

By comparison, the present MacBook Pro’s resolution of 15.4-inch is 2880x 1800, and this resolution has been maintained on the bigger device for some moment now. The analyst says that Apple will most likely procure LG Display’s LCD screen, so it won’t be OLED technology that’s deceptive to hear. However, Apple could quickly be transitioning to an all-OLED future as there is a rumor that the technology giant is supposedly in talks with Samsung to procure their OLED displays for future MacBook Pros and iPads.

It is expected that the Touch Bar will return, and we feel that the notebook bezels will be significantly reduced to maintain the same footprint as the 15.4-inch MacBook Pro. Still, we would suggest taking all this data with a pinch of salt for now, and we’ll get to learn in the future if Apple is really interested in providing a brand new device to its clients.
