Apple today launched the new 16-inch MacBook Pro and, as we reported earlier, it will start at R $ 21,299 in Brazil or US $ 2,399 in the United States – prices unchanged compared to the now-finished 15-inch model.
Obviously, we are talking about the “input” settings (which are already very good). What we haven’t talked about yet is how much this machine will cost if configured on the stalk – and the options, this time, are pretty tough.
Taking the standard top-of-the-line model, which will cost R $ 24,599, we update:
- The eight-core, 2.3GHz Intel Core i9 processor (Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz) by 2.4GHz (Turbo Boost up to 5GHz): +R $ 1,600;
- 16GB DDR4 memory with 2,666MHz for a 64GB: +R $ 6,400;
- The AMD Radeon Pro 5500M graphics chip with 4GB of GDDR6 memory for one with 8GB of memory: +R $ 800;
- And SSD storage of 1TB for one of 8TB: +R $ 17,600.
Here is the final result:
Yes, my friends: R $ 50,999 – that paying 12 times, of course. In sight, the beauty will cost R $ 45,899.10. Then, yes! ?
In the US, the very same customization will take the MBP price from $ 2,799 to $ 6,099 – or, in direct conversion (which doesn’t make much sense, but ok, let’s go), approximately R $ 25,500.
Is it surreal? IS. But, obviously, we are talking here about the “dream configuration” of a laptop that is, of course, already intended for professional audiences. And upgrade prices have improved a lot compared to last year, especially in the SSD category.
One thing that hasn’t changed in the new generation is the fact that most (or all?) Of these components are soldered to the logic board and / or proprietary. That is, the configuration you buy with Apple will be the same until the end of the machine’s life. Therefore, it is good to consider carefully what you will invest in.
Well, who’s going?
