Just six months after the introduction of the MacBook Pro 16, Apple also brought in the new MacBook Pro 13 to the mix. Apart from just the hardware specs upgrade, the MacBook Pro 13 also has some cosmetic upgrades as well. It now uses the Magic Keyboard in place of the butterfly switch keyboard, and you get a Touch Bar rather than a physical ESC key as standard.

The new MacBooks all feature Intel’s 10th generation quad-core Intel Core processors. That being said, the lower-specced options still run on a quad-core 8th gen unit. You can customise the MacBook Pro with up to 32GB of LPDDR4X RAM (3733MHz), and up to 4TB of SSD storage.

For its screen, the MacBook Pro 13 has a 13.3-inch IPS display that is capable of 2560 x 1600 resolution and 500 nits peak brightness.

These performance are measured on tasks like video editing, rendering, and gaming. Coupled with Apple’s Pro Display XDR, it can also push 6K resolution.
