For the first time in practically a decade, a model new MacGuide Pro could also be on the means. Rumors have been ramping up for months relating to a model new 16-inch flagship notebook, increasing Apple’s laptop computer lineup past the 13- and 15-inch fashions its been promoting since 2012. Here’s all the pieces we all know to this point.
16-inch MacGuide Pro: Display
Obviously, a 16-inch MacGuide Pro would characterize the greatest Apple laptop computer since the 17-inch MacGuide Pro was retired in June 2012. While we’re holding out a sliver of hope for the first MacGuide with an OLED show, Apple will possible stick to LCD for the 16-inch mannequin, reportedly sticking with the identical True Tone Retina panel and bumping the decision barely to 3072×1920.
16-inch MacGuide Pro: Design
With the first new dimension in eight years, it appears possible that Apple will even usher in a brand new MacGuide design to go along with it.

He experiences that the new mechanism will use “a glass fiber for a reinforced structure” and can possible be thicker than the current keyboard, however we’re keen to guess that nobody will discover or care—so long as it’s quieter, extra sturdy, and gained’t be nuked by a speck of mud.
One factor is definite about the new MacGuide’s keyboard, nevertheless: the Touch Bar will likely be customary. Apple’s latest 13-inch MacGuide Pro replace eradicated the solely non-Touch Bar Pro, so there’s no turning again now. For higher or worse, the Touch Bar is right here to remain.
16-inch MacGuide Pro: Processor and specs
The present 15-inch MacGuide Pro affords a 2.4GHz 8‑core ninth‑era Intel Core i9 processor, which is fairly near Intel’s top-of-the-line. We count on the 16-inch MacGuide Pro to not less than match that and perhaps even squeeze out a couple of extra megahertz.
