There are certain realizations that come with working from home. While remote work sounded appealing pre-pandemic, it presents a bigger difficulty when you're actually in the house, sitting on the floor with crappy Internet and without the luxury of the ergonomic chair and service technician you never used to notice in the office. To help you manage your work facilities at home, Apple has come out with a new MacBook Pro that promises "double the storage" and "faster performance."
The 13-inch updated MBP comes with the Magic Keyboard for smoother typing and 10th-gen processors (that's 80-percent faster graphics performance with 16GB of faster 3733MHz memory standard in select configurations).
It also comes with the usual bells and whistles we've come to associate with the newer models: the Retina display, Touch Bar, Touch ID, immersive stereo speakers, all-day battery. And it comes with the Catalina OS. It's essentially the same as its bigger 16-inch sibling, but faster and more compact.
Prices are P74,990 (256GB SSD storage), P86,990 (512GB SSD storage), and P104,990 (512GB SSD storage with Four Thunderbolt 3 ports).
According to Charles Paw of Digital Walker and Beyond the Box, it will soon be available in the Philippines once the community quarantine has been lifted.
It should be noted that less than a month ago, Apple unveiled a new iPhone SE, its cheapest and fastest smartphone yet.
