Again Apple lowers down the price of its another series of MacBook after the MacBook Air. Apple introduces a new MacBook Pro with a lower price than the previous model. In the previous model of MacBook Pro, there isn’t Touch Bar and Touch ID in the 13″ MacBook Pro. This is because it is the entry model of the MacBook Pro series. Now, Apple is making a huge change on this entry model. Apple finally includes both the Touch Bar and the Touch ID in all the MacBook Pro lineups as a standard feature.
A quite number of changes in the hardware
Apple’s 2019 13″ MacBook Pro is now powered by the 1.4GHz quad-core 8th gen Intel Core i5 processor. Additionally, it is able to turbo boost to up to 3.9GHz. Apple’s previous MacBook Pro model is only powered by a 2.3GHz dual-core 7th gen Intel processor. This is a huge improvement from Apple.
The new MacBook Pro is fully customizable where you can upgrade the RAM up to 16GB and SSD storage up to 2TB. You can even upgrade your processor to 1.7GHz quad-core 8th gen Core i7 processor. However, the price will surely increase when you made these upgrades. The MacBook Pro also comes with the True Tone technology which exists in the new MacBook Air.
MacBook Pro Pricing and Availability
You can buy the 13″ MacBook Pro for RM5,499. This model comes with the 1.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 processor. For the storage wise, it has 128GB SSD storage with 8GB RAM. If you compare the pricing between the previous model, its RM433 cheaper than the previous model. Additionally, this new model has a Touch ID and Touch Bar whereas the previous model neither have the Touch Bar nor the Touch ID. Personally, this seems a good price for us.
At this moment, the 13″ MacBook Pro with 1.4GHz quad-core i5 Core processor is not available for delivery. However, you can walk in to any Apple’s Authorised Resellers and purchase this new edition of MacBook Pro.
In conclusion, this back-to-school offer is applicable for the Malaysian students also. For students, the base model price is RM5,099. Students can visit the Education page for more information.
