The Most Expensive and Powerful MacBook Pro Now Costs $6,898

Report The Mac mini is finally getting an update after nearly 4 years

Apple rumoured to be releasing a linewide hardware refresh this year

Apple announced external GPU support for Macs at WWDC 2017, and now the company teamed up with the cinema company Blackmagic to develop a new eGPU designed specifically for the new MacBook Pros announced today. It also works as a docking hub for keyboards, mice, HDMI-connected displays or storage. The chip adds an extra layer of security and brings "Hey Siri" voice command support to the MacBook Pro. Instead, Apple is sticking with an updated version of the "butterfly" design.

With a 6-core chip, 32GB RAM, AMD's Radeon Pro 580 GPU, and 4TB storage, the top-of-the-line MacBook Pro is a delight for power users.

The new Pro is ideal for manipulating large data sets, performing complex simulations, creating multi-track audio projects or doing advanced image processing or film editing.

Eight of 13 young footballers rescued from Thai cave so far
A witness near the cave told the Reuters news agency that medical workers carried four people to emergency rescue vehicles. The aide, Sitthichai Klangpattana, didn't comment on the boys' health or say how well the operation has gone.

The MacBook Pro's Retina display features 500 nits of brightness, support for P3 wide colour gamut, now also has True Tone display, making it the best display on a Mac. Apple says the new MacBook Pros come with a third-generation keyboard that's quieter than before, but it continues to have the same butterfly switch mechanism and key travel that made the previous gen of MacBook Pros so controversial. The price of the 15-inch version is not available yet. There aren't many details available, but previous rumors have suggested that Apple may be upgrading the MacBook Air. According to Apple, the new keyboard will be quieter.

Apple launched True Tone several years ago on the iPad Pro, and subsequently spread it to the iPhone. The second revision of the keyboard was meant to add more tactile feel, but also really increased the volume of noise-I always describe those keyboards as sounding "crunchy". Apple maintains that the keyboard issues have affected a very small portion of customers and stands by its keyboard design with an extended, four-year replacement program should something go wrong.

The Verge, meanwhile, notes that the new keyboard was created to be quieter, not to address complaints about reliability. The two Apple Watch models will measure in at 1.57 inches (39.9mm) and 1.78 inches (45.2mm), roughly 15 percent bigger than in the current models.

However, if the report is to be believed, it also raises the question whether Apple will stick to the 38mm and 42mm case height sizings it's offered since the device's inception. All in all, maxed out, you're looking at $6,699.
