Jony Evans writes for Computerworld, “Twitter is ablaze on news that Apple has introduced new 15-inch models of MacBook Pro and a lower price version of its critically acclaimed 5K iMac, but while we read heavily reprised versions of the press release everywhere here’s a few details you may not have seen anywhere.”
“Faster flash: The new 15-inch MacBook Pro is full of improvements, but one that’s going to make a big difference to professional users will be the hugely impressive improvement in throughput,” Evans writes. “Faster flash in the new 15-inch ‘Pros is matched by the disappearance of flash in the new lower cost iMac model. You see, while you can now enjoy the delights of the 5K iMac display for a lower cost of entry ($1,999), Apple has had to make one compromise to keep costs low – in this case the lower cost model uses a conventional 1TB hard drive, rather than the SSD-based Fusion Drive.”
