#MacBook #MacBookPro – Apple Has Plans For MacBook Pro RAM Overkill : Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst with KGI Securities, has predicted that Apple would be launching three models of the MacBook, a 12-incher, a 13-incher and an all-new 15-incher that is said to be coming with a top RAM choice of 32GB.
It seems odd that Apple would go with the 32GB option especially since Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP for worldwide marketing, has said that, “To put more than 16GB of fast RAM into a notebook design at this time would require a memory system that consumes much more power and wouldn’t be efficient enough for a notebook.”
It could be that Apple has discovered a way to make power efficiency work out for this latest model. It’s also reported that the RAM disks in this 2017 MacBooks will be desktop-grade.
Aside that, the tech giant will also be using Intel’s latest seventh-gen “Kaby Lake” Core chips. According to Pocket Now, the assembly will commence in summer and it will be ready for a fall launch.
In regards to current sales trends, Kuo reveals that the essentially the trend for Macs has risen, mostly due to the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. However, it is dragged down by the version lacking in the Touch Bar along with delays from supply chains. The well-known analyst predicts that Apple will decrease the price on the model that is currently price at $1,499.
