2017 Apple MacBook Launch Scheduled For Q3
This year will be a big one for Apple, as the company is scheduled to release its anniversary handheld, the iPhone 8 later this year. But while the upcoming flagship is highly anticipated, there are individuals that are looking forward to the 2017 MacBook models. And if rumors are anything to go by, there is a lot to look forward to this third quarter.
According to International Business Times AU, the 2017 MacBook models are likely to launch in the third quarter and will come in two RAM options, an 8GB model, and a second 16GB variant. The standard 8GB option will be great for those looking to purchase an entry-level notebook. However, the larger RAM unit will provide users with the much-needed memory space.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg has reported that Apple is working on a new chip for its Mac laptops, which will provide more functionality. The processor reportedly started development last year is largely similar to that found in the 2016 MacBook Pro and powers the Touch Bar feature. The upcoming one, codenamed T310, would theoretically handle the computer's low-power mode function.
The publication claimed that the current ARM-based chip for Macs is independent with the rest of the computer's other parts and focuses mainly on the Touch Bar's functionality. The new chip will theoretically connect with the other parts of the MacBook, including storage and wireless components. The move will enhance the chip by adding responsibilities to it. Theoretically, the entire MacBook could offer more functions than previous generations.
The latest model was the 2016 MacBook Pro, which introduced the world to the Touch Bar. Last October, Apple debuted the addition which replaced the standard function keys. However, no new releases were made for the MacBook Air and the standard MacBook. There have been no official announcements made for the 2017 MacBook as of now.
