Today, Apple announced its new high-end 16-inch MacBook Pro computer, which serves as a replacement for the current 15-inch MacBook Pro. The larger MacBook Pro can be configured with up to an 8-core Intel i9 processor, maxes out at 64GB of RAM and can be ordered with up to 8TB of internal SSD storage.
In addition to the new 16-inch Retina display (with 500 nits of brightness), a six-speaker sound system, ‘Studio-quality’ microphones and a 100wH battery, Apple has brought back Apple’s scissor-switch Magic Keyboard (and a physical escape key) that uses a custom rubber dome that has 1mm of travel. This update (or reversion, more so) stands as Apple’s recent MacBook Pro units have been plagued with keyboard issues.

While the standard version of the new 16-inch MacBook Pro comes with a 2.6Ghz 6-core Intel i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHZ, you can max out the new MacBook Pros with a 2.4GHz 8-core Intel i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz.
Apple says a new ‘advanced thermal architecture’ allows the computer to operate on less battery power while still offering more computing power. To achieve this, Apple has increased airflow by 18% and made the heat sink 35% larger compared to the previous-generation MacBook Pro. The extra efficiency combined with the 100Wh lithium-polymer battery offers up to 11 hours of battery life, according to Apple.
The standard model starts at $2,399 and comes with a 2.6GHz 6-core 9th-generation Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, an AMD Radeon Pro 5300M GPU with 4GB of GDDR6 memory, 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory and a 512GB SSD. A maxed-out 16-inch MacBook Pro will cost over $6,000 and offers some unreal specs for a laptop.
The new 16-inch MacBook Pro is available starting today at Apple.com, in Apple Stores and through authorized Apple retailers. As has been the case for a number of years now, the computer is offered in Silver and Space Grey colors.
