New keyboard in the 13-inch MacBook Pro
Why would you segregate this new 13-inch MacBook and not the 2018 or 2019 model? An important reason is that it contains a new type of keyboard. Instead of the butterfly keyboard, Apple is reverting to the scissor keyboard, which is now tabbed ‘Magic Keyboard’. Are you waiting for this, but you think the 16-inch MacBook Pro is too big or too expensive, then you now have plenty of choice. You can hands find largest options on this website. You can opt for the MacBook Air 2020, which was released a month ago. But you can moreover opt for this new 13-inch MacBook Pro in several versions.
The scissor keyboard is the mechanism Apple used surpassing 2016 that users have been quite happy with. The butterfly keyboard used between 2016 and 2019 has mainly been the subject of complaints. Apple has gradually tried to modernize the butterfly mechanism, but this unquestionably never worked out well.
The main changes
Compared to the 13-inch MacBook Pro from 2019, a number of changes have been made:
Is this the right time for a 13-inch MacBook Pro?
When announcing new MacBooks, many people have the question: is this the time, or will there be an plane largest one soon? If you have unchangingly been waiting for a small but powerful MacBook with a largest keyboard, now is the time. Of undertow there are unchangingly new developments that you may or may not want to wait for.
This could be one of the last MacBook with Intel processors surpassing Apple moves to in-house designed chips. Apple is said to have plans to switch to its own ARM-based Mac fries by the end of 2020. These are likely to be deployed first in MacBooks (not iMacs), as they can take the most wholesomeness of shower life and performance improvements. There are rumors well-nigh the return of the 12-inch MacBook, which Apple discontinued in 2015.
Still, there is a reason to segregate a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Intel. Not all software will work with the new ARM processor right away, so you may run into compatibility issues. If you want certainty, it is not plane such a bad idea to segregate a model with Intel.
