Apple has just announced the launch of its MacBook Pro lineup with the latest 8th-generation and 9th-generation Intel processors. In addition to the new chips, information online also indicates that these new laptops will also come with tweaked keyboards to hopefully fix the problems that users have been facing with the new old third gen butterfly keyboards. As part of the launch, Apple has also finally launched a new laptop with 8-core processors along with the quad-core and hex-core processors. According to the announcement, the company claims that the eight-core processor will provide double the performance of the quad-core sporting MacBook Pro and about 40 percent more performance than what we get on the hex-core MacBook Pro.

Talking about the rest of the specifications, things are largely similar to what we have seen in the previous MacBook Pro for the 13-inch and the 15-inch.

To recap, both the notebooks will come with Retina display with 500 nits of brightness, support for P3 wide color gamut, True Tone tech, and stereo speakers with wide-stereo sound.

Both models will also come with Touch ID, Touch Bar, large Force Touch trackpad, SSD, Apple T2 security chip, and Thunderbolt 3 ports while running on MacOS Mojave.

The interesting thing to note here is that both the 2019 MacBook Pro models are covered under the Keyboard Service Program from the first day of the launch. The last thing to note here is that the company has not updated the specifications of the MacBook Notebooks that don t sport the Touch Bar.
