The company calls it the most advanced Mac notebook ever thanks to the  8th-generation hexa-core Intel processors on the 15-inch model and quad-core CPUs on the 13-inch model. The new 15-inch model is said to have 70% faster performance, while the new 13-inch model will offer two times faster performance. According to Apple, the new laptops are ideal for working with large data-sets, for 3D work, audio, image processing or film editing. 

The new MacBook Pro 2018 also supports the memory up to 32GB, which is something power users have been urging to have ever since the MacBook Pro was updated. The notebooks continue to have a Retina-standard supporting True Tone display, capable of 500 nits of peak brightness and have support for the P3 wide color gamut.

One of the most controversial topics of the earlier MacBooks was the butterfly-switch keyboards which have seen action lawsuits and a highly expensive keyboard replacement program. As per Apple, the third-generation MacBook keyboard is better for quieter typing. It still remains to be seen whether Apple has solved the issue, which will render many MacBook keyboards unusable.

The new MacBook Pro 2018 offers up to 2TB SSD storage on the 13-inch model, the 15-inch model can go up to 4TB SSD. The 15-inch model is also more powerful in the graphics as it gets a Radeon Pro graphics card with 4GB of video memory. The large Force Touch trackpad, Touch Bar and Touch ID are all present, as are the stereo speakers, and 3 Thunderbolt ports.
