The MacBooks Pro launched in late October last year came full of polemic. A constant criticism was regarding the limitation that they only go up to 16GB of RAM, which was later explained (although many still do not "accept").
Today the famous analyst Ming Chi Kuo (from KGI Securities), sent a note to investors stating that Apple updated its 15 inch MBPs in 2017 including desktop memories (to address the issue of LPDDR4 RAM incompatibility) with up to 32GB.
He also cites something quite obvious, other than the arrival of chip generation “Kaby Lake” (seventh generation) Intel officially released last week during the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas to MBPs.
The 13 inch models without Touch BarIn turn, they should receive price cuts to position themselves more as replacements for MacBooks Air.
These new MBPs are not expected before the third quarter of the year, but already in the second Kuo bet that Apple update the 12 inch MacBooks with new processors (also from the line “Kaby Lake”of course) and up to 16GB of RAM is unknown by default or configurable at the time of purchase.
