Tech giant Apple is preparing to release a new entry-level MacBook Pro with a few modifications this year. According to Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, who has highlighted what to expect from this upcoming MacBook in his ‘Power On’ newsletter by releasing a few nuggets about the new laptop.
According to Gurman, the Touch Bar, as well as the mini-LED backlighting, will be removed from the entry-level MacBook Pro. While it will be eligible for an M2 chip, which is the successor to the M1 that arrived in the 2020 MacBook Pro, it will be without ProMotion display technology and miniLED. Apple’s ProMotion display refresh rate technology determines the appropriate refresh rate based on the content up to 120Hz. But that is not the only compromise you should expect.
To differentiate itself from last year’s MacBook Pro, the upcoming entry-level MacBook Pro may have less storage, lower performance, and no Touch Bar. “I’d expect the next entry-level MacBook Pro to match the high-end MacBook Pros by losing the Touch Bar, but important differentiators will include smaller displays, CPUs, and storage, as well as no ProMotion or miniLED,” Gurman wrote in his newsletter.
The M1 Pro and M1 Max CPUs enable Apple’s highest-performing MacBook Pro, the 2021 MacBook Pro. Despite the fact that the M2 processor will be superior to the M1, analysts believe it will not be as powerful as the M1 Pro or M1 Max, resulting in a performance reduction in the forthcoming MacBook Pro.
