The 13-inch MacBook Pro is updated to keep up with the 16-inch version released on the market a few months ago. This model comes the Magic Keyboard, twice the storage and improved performance.
Following the steps forward made with the 16-inch model, the new 13-inch variant can count on the new Magic Keyboard, one of the most important upgrades of recent years. After the problems encountered overtime on certain previous models, the Magic Keyboard has keys with a redesigned scissor mechanism and 1 mm excursion, to write more comfortably and stably and with maximum reliability.
The Magic Keyboard also has a physical “Esc” key in addition to Touch Bar and Touch ID, to ensure the best typing experience ever experienced on a Mac notebook.
Not only is the Magic Keyboard among the novelties of this MacBook Pro 13 ″; computing power also got a substantial upgrade.
