"The latest generation MacBook Pro is the fastest and most powerful notebook we've ever made", said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

The smaller, 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $1,799 and the larger, 15-inch model at $2,399.

True Tone will adapt the display's colour temperature to your surroundings, just as it does on iOS. The displays also feature 500 nits of brightness and support for the P3 wide color gamut.

Despite the upgrades, consumers may be unhappy to hear that these new computers retain the MacBook's basic keyboard design, which has drawn three class-action lawsuits that claim it's faulty. There is also support for True Tone technology that can deliver a more natural viewing experience for designer and editors.

When it comes to high-quality premium notebook computers Apple is a brand many people can get behind.

Still, there's good news for those of you who engage in video editing or other more vigorous computing activities. The internals of the device is powered by Apple T2 chips.

Alongside the new notebooks, Apple launched something interesting as well.

Some Pro users may be disappointed by the ports, which are, once again, limited to USB-C. The bigger model is 70% faster than the previous one, while the 13-incher is up to twice as fast. The laptop features an Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics 655 paired with 128MB of eDRAM. You can configure that design with a faster CPU, double the memory, and up to eight times the storage space. Pricing remains the same with the version that has the 256GB SSD still costing $1,799 and the 512GB variant pricing out at $1,999.

Apple also released new leather sleeves for its MacBook lineup. Jumping with both feet into the 4TB option add a whopping $3,200 to the price tag, taking us to the $6,699.
