This morning we had already told you that it was very likely that Apple would present the new 13-inch MacBook Pro throughout today, and indeed it has been, in fact we have had to wait very little to know all the key specifications of this new ultraportable.
At the design level there are no changes, and we do not see any news regarding the quality of the finishes, which means that Apple has maintained a strongly continuist bet with the new 13-inch MacBook Pro. The novelties are, therefore, at the hardware level, and as we will see, the most interesting is the jump to the new Intel Core 10 processors, based on the Ice Lake architecture and manufactured in 10nm + process.
Another important change is found in the keyboard. As planned Apple you have discarded the butterfly mechanism and used the Magic Keyboard that we saw in the new 16-inch MacBook Pro, based on a scissor mechanism that is much more reliable and long-lived, and also more resistant to the accumulation of dust and dirt.

The base configuration of the 13-inch MacBook Pro includes a Core i5 processor from eighth generation with four cores and eight threads at 1.4 GHz-3.9 GHz, normal and turbo mode; 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB SSD (double that of the previous version), 13-inch Retina display, Touch Bar and Touch ID, Magic Keyboard and two Thunderbolt ports. Its price is 1,499 euros.
If we are looking for a processor configuration 10th generation Core i5Equipped with four cores and eight threads at 2 GHz-3.8 GHz, normal and turbo mode, we have to go to one of the superior models, whose price is 2,129 euros. For that price we also get 16 GB of 3,733 MHz LPDDR4X memory, a 512 GB SSD and four Thunderbolt ports.
The new 13-inch MacBook Pro configured to the maximum of its possibilities is priced at 4,379 euros and it has a tenth generation Core i7 processor with four cores and eight threads at 2.3 GHz-4.1 GHz, normal mode and turbo; 32 GB of LPDDR4X at 3,733 MHz and a 4 TB SSD.
