The new models feature faster 8th-generation Intel processors with six cores in the 15-inch model and four cores in the 13-inch model.
In November of a year ago, Marco Arment, the co-founder of Tumblr and developer behind popular apps like Instapaper and Overcast, wrote a post that spread like wildfire, expressing how many Macbook Pro users felt when Apple announced the new Touch Bar model with its 2016 Macbook Pro refresh.
Now seeing as how the keyboard was seemingly the main source of complaints on the 2016 models, it will be interesting to see how the company's next-gen keyboard design functions out in the real world. In macOS Mojave, a new Dark Mode transforms the desktop with a dramatic new look that puts the focus on user content. But while the updated MacBooks have an "improved third-generation" keyboard that it promises will be quieter, the company has stayed committed to its key design.

The processor upgrades are not that expensive as the upgrade to the 4TB SSD which will cost you an additional $3,200. The Touch Bar, the abandonment of MagSafe, a 16GB RAM limit, a reduction in ports, the move to USB-C (requiring dongles to connect old devices), and the low-travel keyboard from the MacBook... people were frustrated by a lot of Apple's choices on these computers.
