Overhauled 2016 Macbook Pro Will Overpower Microsoft's Surface Pro 5?
The 2016 MacBook Pro is expected to be a grand redesign of Apple's notebook line. After all, it has been four years since the last. Most likely because of this, there has been a slight decline in sales. Another factor is the increasing popularity of other notebook devices like the Microsoft Surface Pro.
According to The Christian Times, the upcoming Microsoft Surface Pro 5 is expected to arrive sometime in 2017. However, the wait may just be worth it as the company is said to be waiting for Intel's next processor, the Kaby Lake. This seventh-generation processor is expected to hit the ground by the end of the year, which could give Microsoft a great start in 2017.
The Surface Pro 5 is also expected to come pre-installed with Windows 10 Redstone 2, despite a lack of announcements on the actual operating system. The hybrid laptop is also expected to come with an Ultra HD screen that is 4K video compatible. It is possible that Apple will use a processor from a different company than Intel, although Intel has provided power to previous MacBook devices.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg confirms via various sources that the 2016 MacBook Pro will arrive on the market with a powerful graphics processor in order to entice the gaming community. Apple is so close to the final prototype as the Cupertino-based company reportedly started test runs at the beginning of the year.
The upcoming 2016 MacBook Pro is slated to arrive with a secondary display that will replace the current function key row. However, Apple will swap the physical keys for an OLED display. This will make the experience of using the MacBook Pro more efficient by placing shortcuts at user's fingertips. In addition, the trackpad is expected to be just slightly wider than the current one.
Lastly, the 2016 MacBook Pro is expected to be thinner and lighter than its predecessors. However, it will not be tapered like the MacBook Air and the most recent 12-inch MacBook.
