MacBook Pro Drops IDR 6.3 Million, Here’s a List of New Laptops Apple Tech – 7 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The price of the Macbook Pro has reportedly dropped to IDR 6.3 million. The price cut occurred after Apple recently released its newest product series.

The 14-inch screen Macbook Pro is priced at US$1,599 (Rp. 25.37 million). This price is down from US$1,999 (Rp. 31.7 million) or down US$400 (Rp. 6.3 million).

At this event, Apple announced a series of Macbook Pro and iMac series. All devices will start initial sales next week.

There are no significant changes to the entire product, including in terms of design. Except for the use of a new chip embedded in it.

Here’s a list of Apple’s newest devices:

  • The 14-inch MacBook Pro is priced as low as US$ 1,599 with an M3 processor.
  • MacBook Pro with M3 Pro processor with lowest price of US$ 1,999. This version can be upgraded with an M3 Max processor
  • 16-inch MacBook Pro with M3 Pro processor, priced as low as US$ 2,499. This version can also be upgraded with an M3 Max processor
  • The latest MacBook Pro models are equipped with HDMI and SD car slots, in addition to a USB-C slot. The previous version only had a USB-C slot
  • This MacBook Pro 13 with Touch Bar did not get the update
  • The new color is called “Space Black” with anti-fingerprint material for the M3 Pro and M3 Max versions of the MacBook Pro
  • The iMac 24-inch M3 desktop computer is priced as low as US$ 1,299. Previous versions of the iMac still used the M1 processor.

M3 chips

However, this launch is also outside of Apple’s habits. The Macbook Pro variant comes with the M3 chip, not the Pro label like last year.

The M3 that was introduced is said to have a significant performance increase. Including faster processing power and longer battery life.

Apart from that, the highest version is designed to support the development of artificial intelligence (AI) applications. Apple’s new chip is expected to boost sales of Apple’s Mac business unit, which declined in the second quarter of 2023.

Here are some facts about Apple’s latest M3 chip:

  • Apple claims all M3 chips support up to 22 hours of battery life
  • The M3 has an 8 core processor and up to 10 core GPU
  • The M3 Pro has a 12-core CPU with an 18-core GPU
  • The M3 Max has a 16-core CPU and up to 40-core GPU
  • The GPU embedded in the M3 is claimed to be 1.8 times faster than the GPU in the M2
  • The M3 CPU core is claimed to be 15 percent faster for heavy work.
  • The M3 is built with a 3 nanometer process
  • The new M3 Max is available at the end of November
