On Tuesday, April 13th, Apple introduced a new MacBook Pro laptop family. What’s new?
Aesthetically, the Macbook Pro models have not changed. Apple is using the same enclosure design as the previous “Unibody” model. The name “Unibody” is based on the manufacturing technique that Apple uses to create the case for the laptop. They machine the bottom half (not the screen) of the laptop from a single piece of aluminum. This technique has not only created a beautiful piece of equipment, but also the sturdiest laptops I have ever used.
The MacBook Pro laptops are still available in three sizes, 13-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch. They still come standard with a glossy glass display, but the 15-inch and 17-inch models can be ordered with an optional antiglare display instead.
Though the MacBook Pro 13-inch model has remained largely unchanged, Apple has made several important changes to the 15-inch and 17-inch that directly impact the user experience.
