When Apple first launched their M1 chipsets, one of many computer systems that obtained the chipset was the 13-inch MacBook Professional. Apple later refreshed the MacBook Professional lineup with new 14-inch and 16-inch choices, in addition to M1 Professional and Max chipsets, so in the mean time it’s unclear what’s going to turn into of the 13-inch mannequin.
Now in line with a report from Mark Gurman’s Power On newsletter, he claims that Apple is engaged on a brand new entry-level MacBook Professional that might be powered by Apple’s upcoming rumored M2 chipset. It’s unclear what dimension this entry-level mannequin can be, however apparently one of many methods Apple can be protecting it “reasonably priced” can be by utilizing an LCD display screen.
Which means it won’t be utilizing the mini LED shows that Apple launched within the 14-inch and 16-inch fashions, and it might additionally imply that it’s going to more than likely skip the ProMotion 120Hz refresh charge. We’re unsure how less expensive this mannequin can be, however assuming it’s something just like the 13-inch mannequin refreshed again in 2020, it needs to be a extra reasonably priced various to the newer 14-inch and 16-inch fashions.
Gurman doesn’t state when this mannequin can be launched, however seeing that it has been greater than a yr, maybe we’ll study extra at Apple’s spring occasion which is rumored to take place on the 8th of March.
