If you believe the authoritative analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, Apple is working on a new generation MacBook Pro with a new design. It is difficult to say what the changes get a professional company laptops, but surely every user has his own wish list. Journalist MacWorld, Leif Johnson reasoned that would appear in the new MacBook Pro.
A large number of ports
Of course, do not expect that the company will return the MacBook Pro to the usual USB-A ports. But Apple definitely need to think about increasing the number of connectors – especially on the 13-inch models. Two USB Type-C – this is clearly not enough to call the notebook a professional computer. Hooked up the charger and another peripheral device – and that’s it. It’s not serious.
The refusal of the Touch Bar
At first sight Touch Bar is a good option, but in practice the touchpad only complicates the workflow. It is not afraid of the word, innovation for the sake of innovation. We need a good old key and Apple needs to completely abandon the touchpad, leaving only the fingerprint sensor Touch ID, as is done in the new MacBook Air.
The latest iPhone and iPad Pro are equipped with face recognition system Face ID. And I can safely say that looking forward to this option on the Mac. However, before that, is to decide where to place advanced sensors TrueDepth. I sincerely hope that this does not require cutout in the display.
The minimum frame around the display
After meeting with new iPad Pro, it was hard for me to use other devices. This bright screen with minimal framework and curves is really mesmerizing. And I would be really happy if Apple introduced a similar design in the MacBook Pro. In addition, I would also not abandoned OLED-display with support for 120 Hz. But let’s be realistic.
Apple Pencil support on the trackpad
Currently Apple Pencil only works with the iPad Pro. And I honestly don’t understand why a huge trekpada in MacBook Pro do not support a stylus. Imagine how it would be convenient. Open any graphics program and be able to quickly make accurate changes to the sketch, template or snapshot. Or just to use for drawing. Most importantly, you do not need additional peripherals.
More reliable keyboard
Keyboard with “butterfly” are the Bane of any modern MacBook Pro. Until 2015 with the keyboard not encountered any problems – it was reliable, comfortable. You can not say about new models. Apple urgently needs to develop a new reliable mechanism, then the user’s trust will be difficult to regain. Interestingly, now laptops on the Windows more suitable option than the MacBook, if you work with large texts. It can only be described as a disgrace.
