Buying your first Macbook just got cheaper.
Apple have killed off the 12-inch Macbook and updated their Macbook Air and Pro: here's how much the new notebooks cost and what they bring to the table.
The new entry-level Macbook Pro features an 8th-generation dual-core processor, stereo speakers, 8GB of RAM, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a Force Touch trackpad and your choice of either 128GB or 256GB of internal SSD storage. Three colors are available: Gold, Silver and Space Grey.
“College students love the Mac — it’s the notebook they rely on from the dorm room to the classroom, and the No. 1 choice among higher education students,” said Tom Boger, Apple’s senior director of Mac Product Marketing.
The new Apple Macbook Pro is slightly-beefier when it comes to hardware and comes in two sizes: 13-inch and 15-inch. Regardless of which you choose, you'll still get an quad-core 8th-Gen Intel Core processor, a 13-inch True Tone Retina display, 8GB of RAM, up to 512GB of SSD storage, touch bar, Touch ID and Apple's dedicated T2 Security Chip.
Gold isn't a color option for the new Macbook Pro, so you'll have to decide between Silver and Space Grey.
In Australia, pricing for the new Apple MacBook Air starts at AU$1,699 or AU$1,549 for university students. Meanwhile, the new Apple MacBook Pro starts at AU$1,999 or AU$1,849 for university students. Full pricing is available on the Apple website.
