While the feelings toward Apple’s butterfly keyboard are somewhat of a mixed bag at best, the reviews of the Magic Keyboard have pretty much been universal praise. The Magic Keyboard has been lauded far and wide for its exceptional feedback, logical design, and button layout. Basically, every issue people had with the butterfly keyboard, Apple fixed, retooled, and revamped into the glorious typing experience that is the Magic Keyboard. And now that experience is in the new Apple 13″ MacBook Pro, which means you’re going to get the best keyboard Apple has to offer.
The Magic Keyboard isn’t the MacBook Pro’s only selling point. The latest model also features double the amount of storage across all variants—meaning the base model starts at 256GB and goes all the way up to 1TB. With an optional 10th-gen quad-core Intel processor, the MacBook Pro 13 delivers nearly three times the performance speed of its dual-core predecessor, as well as substantially faster performance for graphically intense tasks like 4K video editing and rendering, smoother gameplay, and more. On top of all that, select models of the new MacBook Pro will include 16GB of Apple’s faster 3733 MHz memory, with the option of up to 32GB of memory—a first for the 13″ MacBook Pro laptop.
The 13″ MacBook Pro’s other notable features are highlights we’ve seen in other Apple devices, including the Retina display, Touch Bar, Touch ID login, and many more. It’s too early to be certain, but it sure looks like the new 13″ MacBook Pro might be the laptop that so many Apple users have been clamoring for. It’s compact and portable, it has a killer screen and enough power to handle most demands, and it offers one of the top-rated laptop keyboards on the market. For those of us that who have been waiting for that “perfect” MacBook Pro to come out, it looks like our patience might finally be rewarded.
