Posted by TechRadar.com on Tuesday, March 26, 2018 07:24:46 Apple’s latest MacBook Pro, which will be the company’s last Mac for at least another year, failed to hit a major sales milestone.
The MacBookPro 11.6-inch notebook was announced earlier this month, and is the companys first all-new Mac for two years.
It features a 13.3-inch display and 2TB of RAM, but only has 128GB of storage space and a price tag of £2,699.
The laptop has been on sale since April 29th, but this morning the MacBook suffered a software issue which prevented the laptop from powering on.
A number of customers have reported that the laptop does not power on when they plug in their cables, and when they turn it on again, the laptop is unable to boot.
It’s unclear why this issue occurred, and it’s possible that the problem is related to Apple’s “power management”, or some other firmware bug.
Apple has yet to issue a formal statement about the issue, but some users have reported having to restart the machine.
However, Apple did make a few tweaks to the laptop’s hardware, which have helped it hit sales goals, and the MacPro 11-inch is one of the first new Macs with an Intel Core i7 processor since the mid-1990s.
However, this time around, Apple has chosen to use Intel’s Broadwell processor, which has been around since the beginning of the last decade.
This time around the Broadwell-based MacPro will also support NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX graphics card.
This is an interesting move by Apple, as the Mac Pro is an excellent all-round Mac, and while NVIDIA’s RTX graphics cards will not be cheap, they are capable of offering high-end gaming and multimedia experiences at an acceptable price.
Apple should have no trouble winning over gamers who want to buy an all-in-one PC, but it also seems unlikely that many will be able to justify the higher price.
A similar issue has been plaguing MacBook laptops for the past few months, as well.
According to a number of users, the MacbookPro 11, which Apple released earlier this year, did not support NVIDIA Pascal graphics cards.
Apple also released a new version of macOS called macOS High Sierra earlier this week.
