This new construction also has a black plastic keyboard that was first used on the MacBook Air, which itself was inspired by the sunken keyboard of the original polycarbonate MacBooks. The now standardized keyboard brings congruity to the MacBook line, with black keys on a metallic aluminum body.
The lids of the MacBook family are held closed by a magnet with no mechanical latch, a design element first introduced with the polycarbonate MacBook. The Memory, drives, and batteries were accessible in the old MacBook lineup, though the newest compact lineup solders or glues all such components in place.
All of the current MacBooks feature backlit keyboards. The MacBook was discontinued from February until March , when a new model featuring an ultraportable design and an all-metal enclosure was introduced. It was again discontinued in July of following a price reduction of the 3rd generation MacBook Air and discontinuation of the 2nd generation model. The MacBook Air is Apple's least expensive notebook computer.
While the 1st generation was released as a premium ultraportable positioned above the - MacBook, lowered prices on subsequent iterations and the discontinuation of that MacBook has made it serve as the entry-level Macintosh portable. The to base model came with a inch screen and was Apple's thinnest notebook computer until the introduction of the MacBook in March In , the MacBook Air received a small refresh, with the processor speed increased to 1.
The base price was also raised, although the base configuration of the model was retained until July 9, , when it was discontinued along with the Retina MacBook. The new Air does not have a fan, ensuring silent operation, but limiting the M1 chip speed in sustained operations. Performance was claimed to be higher than most current Intel laptops.
The MacBook Pro is Apple's higher-end notebook available in both inch and inch configurations. The current generation inch MacBook Pro was introduced in October On November 13, , Apple released the inch MacBook Pro, replacing the inch model of the previous generation, and replacing the butterfly keyboard with a scissor mechanism keyboard dubbed the Magic Keyboard by Apple , reverting to the old "inverted-T" arrow key layout, replacing the virtual Escape key on the Touch Bar with a physical key, and replacing the AMD Polaris and Vega graphics from the inch model with options from AMD's Navi graphics architecture, as well as reengineering the speakers, microphone array, and the thermal system compared to the inch; the latter had thermal limitations in the inch model due to its design.
It also has a Wh battery; this is the largest battery that can be easily carried onto a commercial airliner under U. Transportation Security Administration rules. Apple will continue to sell versions of the MacBook Pro with Intel processors. The MacBook Pro with M1 SoC incorporates a fan, allowing sustained operation of the M1 chip at its full performance level, which is claimed to match or exceed that of Intel versions. On October 18, , Apple announced updated inch and inch MacBook Pro models during an online event.
This release addressed many criticisms of the previous generation  by reintroducing hard function keys in place of the Touch Bar, an HDMI 2. Other additions include a Liquid Retina XDR display with thinner bezels and an iPhone-like notch, ProMotion supporting Hz variable refresh rate, a p webcam , Wi-Fi 6 , 3 Thunderbolt 4 ports, a six-speaker sound system supporting Dolby Atmos , and support for a third 6K display on M1 Max models.
The original MacBook was discontinued on July 20, , for consumer purchase and in February for institutions, being superseded by the 2nd generation MacBook Air, as the inch model introduced in had the same starting price of the MacBook. Optional 1 TB or 2 TB at the time of purchase, not upgradable after. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Lines of Apple notebook computers.
This article is about the brand of notebook computers. For the specific models by the same name, see MacBook — and MacBook — Further information: Comparison of current Macintosh models. See also: Timeline of Macintosh models. The inch model was introduced in January ; the inch model in April. The second-generation model debuted in October in and inch variants, with a inch variant added in January Called the "unibody" model because its case was machined from a single piece of aluminum, it had a thinner flush display, a redesigned trackpad whose entire surface consisted of a single clickable button, and a redesigned keyboard.
Updates brought Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and introduced Intel's Thunderbolt. The third-generation MacBook Pro was released in the inch in June, a inch model in October. It eliminated Ethernet and FireWire ports and the optical drive. The fourth-generation MacBook Pro, released in October , adopted USB-C for all data ports and power and included a shallower "butterfly"-mechanism keyboard.
On all but the base model, the function keys were replaced with a touchscreen strip called the Touch Bar with a Touch ID sensor integrated into the power button. A November revision to the fourth-generation  MacBook Pro  introduced the Magic Keyboard, which uses a scissor-switch mechanism. The initial inch model with a screen set in narrower bezels was followed by a inch model in May Another revision to the fourth generation was released in November ; it was the first MacBook Pro to feature an Apple-designed system on a chip , the Apple M1.
The fifth-generation  MacBook Pro was released in October in and inch sizes. Powered by either M1 Pro or M1 Max chips , they are the first to be available only with an Apple silicon system on a chip. This generation re-introduced MagSafe, function keys, and some other elements that had been removed from previous models. Initial first-generation inch models retains the two USB 2.
The original case design was discontinued on October 14, , for the inch,  and January 6, , for the inch. On October 14, , in a press event at company headquarters , Apple officials announced a new inch MacBook Pro featuring a "precision aluminum unibody enclosure" and tapered sides similar to those of the MacBook Air. The unibody-construction MacBook Pro largely follows the styling of the original aluminum iMac and the MacBook Air and is slightly thinner than its predecessor, albeit wider and deeper due to the widescreen display.
This version diverged from its inch sibling with an anti-glare "matte" screen option with the glossy finish standard and a non user-removable lithium polymer battery. Adaptive charging, which uses a chip to optimize the charge flow to reduce wear and tear, extends the battery's overall life.
Thunderbolt technology, Sandy Bridge dual-core Intel Core i5 and i7 on the inch model or quad-core i7 on the and inch models processors, and a high definition FaceTime camera were added on February 24, The chassis bottoms are also engraved differently from the models. Prior to its discontinuation it was Apple's only product to still include an optical drive and a FireWire port, and only notebook with a hard disk drive and Ethernet port.
The firm is also investigating similar cases across the United States. This "will repair affected MacBook Pro systems, free of charge". The program covered affected MacBook Pro models until December 31, , or four years from original date of sale. The third-generation MacBook Pro was released in , marketed as the "MacBook Pro with Retina display" to differentiate it from the previous model:  the inch in June , a inch model in October.
The model name is no longer placed at the bottom of the screen bezel; instead, it is found on the underside of the chassis, similar to an iOS device and is the first Macintosh notebook to not have its model name visible during normal use. The Retina models also have fewer user-accessible upgrade or replacement options than previous MacBooks. Unlike in previous generations, the memory is soldered onto the logic board and is therefore not upgradable.
The solid state drive is not soldered and can be replaced by users, although it has a proprietary connector and form factor. While the battery is glued in, recycling companies have stated that the design is only "mildly inconvenient" and does not hamper the recycling process.
The initial revision includes Intel's third-generation Core i7 processors Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. The lower-end inch model only included integrated graphics while the higher-end model continued to include a discrete Nvidia graphics card in addition to integrated graphics. On March 9, , the inch model was updated with Intel Broadwell processors, Iris graphics, faster flash storage based on PCIe 2.
Apple continued to sell the inch model until July In June , Apple announced a worldwide recall for certain 15" MacBook Pro computers after receiving at least 26 reports of batteries becoming hot enough to produce smoke and inflict minor burns or property damage.
The problem affected some , computers, mostly sold between September and February The company asked customers to stop using their computers until Apple could replace the batteries. Apple unveiled fourth-generation  and inch MacBook Pro models during a press event at their headquarters on October 27, All models, except for the baseline inch model, featured the Touch Bar, a new multi-touch-enabled OLED strip built into the top of the keyboard in place of the function keys.
The Touch Bar is abutted on its right by a sapphire-glass button that doubles as a Touch ID sensor and a power button. The models also introduced a "second-generation" butterfly-mechanism keyboard whose keys have more travel than the first iteration in the Retina MacBook. All ports have been replaced with either two or four combination Thunderbolt 3 ports that support USB-C 3. All versions can output to a 5K display; the inch models can drive two such displays. The inch models include a discrete Radeon Pro , or graphics card in addition to the integrated Intel graphics.
The flash storage in the Touch Bar models is soldered to the logic board and is not upgradeable, while in the inch model without Touch Bar, it is removable, but difficult to replace, as it is a proprietary format of SSD storage. A GB [a] storage option was added for the base inch model, down from the base GB [a] storage. On July 12, , Apple updated the Touch Bar models with Intel Coffee Lake quad-core processors in inch models and six-core processors in inch models, updated graphics cards, third-generation butterfly keyboards that introduced new symbols for the control and option keys, Bluetooth 5 , T2 SoC Chip , True Tone display technology, and larger-capacity batteries.
On May 21, , Apple announced updated Touch Bar models with newer processors, with an eight-core Core i9 standard for the higher-end inch model, and an updated keyboard manufactured with "new materials" across the line. A report by AppleInsider claimed that the updated "Butterfly" keyboard fails twice as often as previous models, often due to particles stuck beneath the keys.
The fourth-generation MacBook Pro received mixed reviews. On May 4, , Apple announced an updated inch model with the Magic Keyboard. The two Thunderbolt port version has the same Coffee Lake processors, graphics, and maximum storage and memory as the two Thunderbolt port models. The supported external displays was reduced to one, as the previous Intel-based models supported two 4K displays.
Apple addressed many criticisms of the previous  generation  by restoring hard function keys in place of the Touch Bar, an HDMI port,  an SD card reader, MagSafe charging, and a higher base memory. Other additions include a Liquid Retina XDR display with thinner bezels and an iPhone-like notch, ProMotion variable refresh rate, a p webcam , Wi-Fi 6 , 3 Thunderbolt ports, a 6-speaker sound system supporting Dolby Atmos , and support of multiple external displays.
These new models feature a thicker and more-squared design than their Intel-based predecessors. The keyboard features full-sized function keys, with the keyboard set in a "double anodized" black well. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Line of notebook computers.
