After all these years, Apple has heard prayers of its users, by changing the butterfly keyboard setup on its refreshed MacBook Pro range of laptops, which now gets a 16-inch display.

The 16-inch variant now starts from Rs 1,99,900 in the country but Apple has gone bonkers with the model, literally, and added variants that offer up to 64GB RAM and a whopping 8TB SSD for storage — the largest SSD ever in a notebook.

That model, understandably, costs more than 2 lakh, and will most likely be preferred by professionals, who really need a system with all that power and space. It will be available in the coming months.

The 16-inch MacBook Pro features a new Magic Keyboard, a physical Escape key and an inverted-"T" arrangement for the arrow keys -- along with Touch Bar and Touch ID

The 16-inch screen gets a 3072x1920 pixels resolution, and also includes a six-speaker sound system, the Force Touch track pad and the Apple T2 Security Chip.

For graphics, you’ve got the new AMD Radeon Pro 5000M series, which is the first 7nm mobile discrete GPU being made available on the Pro version of MacBook.

You can choose between Intel Core i7 or i9 processor, with up to 64GB RAM and 8TB SSD storage, although, the series base model gets 512GB and 1TB SSD storage with the respective processors.

But it’s worth nothing that aside from all this power, the 16-inch MacBook Pro features a 100Wh battery - which according to Apple is the largest ever on a MacBook notebook - for an additional hour of battery life of up to 11 hours of wireless web browsing or Apple TV app video playback.
