Apple adds new MacBooks, iMacs and the 'all-powerful' iMac Pro

Tech genius Apple is expected to launch its all new powerful iMac Pro in December this year.

Apple announced updates to the MacBook Pro lineup in June 2017, building on the new design introduced in October 2016. Not only that, but you can option it with a 27-inch 5K display and AMD's new Radeon Vega GPU. Those interested can add the tablet to their existing or start a new T-Mobile ONE service plan for just $20 a month.

In the case of the iPad, though, Apple is turning its tablet into a laptop.

The most exciting announcement regarding the iMac and MacBook Pro variations, at least to me, is the price drop, allowing consumers better access to more power. But if you can work with those limitations, this is the best version of the 12-inch MacBook yet. That difference is quite significant too.

On the outside the iMac Pro resembles its less gutsy brethren but features Apple Space Grey colour scheme rather than the silvery white associated with iMacs. This is exactly the same size as its 12.9-inch predecessor, but Apple has ensured that it is 36g lighter.

This begins with the processor and chipset included in the next-generation iPad Pro. Since then, the product range has got a bit more complicated: you can buy portable touchscreen devices in 4, 4.7, 5.5, 7.9, 9.7 and 12.9in variants.

After that incident, the fan was tossed out of the game, but the Predators fought all the way back to tie the game at three. It stayed 4-1 after Pittsburgh's Matt Cullen was ruled offside following a coach's challenge of a goal by Patric Hornqvist.

Beyond that, the rest of the design is more or less the same. Both come with Touch Bar with Touch ID and Thunderbolt 3.

Apple also announced some upgrades to the beloved MacBook line, which has always been a hit with creative entrepreneurs and small business owners alike.

The updated iMac features faster Kaby Lake processors up to 4.2 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz and supports up to twice the memory as the previous generation. In fact, it looks particularly tame - with that Apple minimalism we've come to expect. The iMac has Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz supported, and 1 TB hard drive. This means you will enjoy HDR-standard visuals, in supported content. Of course, the end result is the same: a pixels-per-inch count of 264, for crisp, detailed image reproduction.

Storage-wise, it's a similar story.

No one was surprised to see a 10.5-inch iPad, a model that sits almost between the giant 12.9-inch original and the more traditionally sized 9.7-inch model. Neither is expandable via microSD.

That has always been true for the MacBooks naturally as well as the Mac Pro. 'Radeon Pro 500 Series graphics are enabling new generations of makers with compute-accelerated creative tools and new APIs, bringing their imaginations to life in ways like never before.
