Crumbs. Apple has tweaked the MacBook Pro keyboard

MacBook Pro can be updated this fall with macOS Mojave, the latest version of the world's most advanced desktop operating system.

Apple has updated its MacBook Pro laptops with new processors, keyboards and display technology, and hands-free Siri. Apple doesn't specifically say whether the new generation of "butterfly" keyboards solves that annoying problem, which prompted Apple to announce a free fix program last month, but it does claim they are much quieter.

"I can say definitively that the keyboard is noticeably quieter than its predecessor".

A powerful Radeon Pro discrete graphics is integrated into the 15-inch MacBook Pro that can record up to 4GB of video memory in every configuration.

Apple has also put the new T2 chip from its iMac Pro into the MacBook Pro, which handles fingerprint scanning, the Touch Bar and other duties.

Apple enthusiast sites reported this week that Apple is planning updated iPad Pro models with Face ID (like the iPhone X) and no Home button.

Not included in the press release is the Blackmagic eGPU, a slick piece of hardware that will let you add a graphics processing unit to your brand new Mac.

MacBook Pros Updated with Faster Processors, Up to 32 GB RAM, New Keyboards, True Tone Displays, and More

Are you willing to spend upwards of $6600 for a top-of-the-line MacBook Pro?

The 15-inch MacBook Pro gets a bit more attention. For those who need maximum storage, the 15-inch can handle up to 4TB of storage. Meanwhile, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar moves from the quad-core CPUs to current-generation six-core i7 and i9 processors. The laptop can be configured to have as much as 32 GB of RAM, and up to 4TB of super-fast SSD storage.

Despite the upgrades, consumers may be unhappy to hear that these new computers retain the MacBook's basic keyboard design, which has drawn three class-action lawsuits that claim it's faulty.

Prices start at $2,399 for the MBP 15 and the new computers are available for ordering through the online Apple Store and from physical Apple Stores this week.

New MacBook Pro leather sleeves now available in Saddle Brown, Midnight Blue and Black.

Both the models are out now on apple.com for purchase.
