Apple discretely launched its top of the line pro device, the MacBook Pro 6 inches. This is the largest MacBook since the 17-inch model was discontinued a couple of years ago. The device is very indicative of Apple in every sense starting from the design aesthetics to the performance and so on. However, the major changes that Apple has incorporated in the new Mac is not a major hardware upgrade or software change, rather it is a change in the approach of the company itself.
The company has been reluctant to change numerous things that have irked its consumes over the past few years. This has been criticized by the users to the point that many even considered to switch to windows and even leave the so called Apple Ecosystem. After numerous insignificant changes and calling back products from the market, Apple has finally done something that has gained significant traction in the tech world.

The new MacBook is what the company expects it to be, a MacBook. However, this is the time after many years that this is a MacBook that the customers also wanted it to be. The design is pleasing but not compromising on the thermal performance as compared to the previous 3 to 4 versions. The dual fan system underneath allows for superior performance from the already powerful processor and graphics chip which draws a lot of power. The price is also something that the consumers will be satisfied with as it starts at the same price of $2399 as the previous MacBook Pro 15 inch started. People with heavy processing power or graphical power needs on the go can opt this device.
