Apple’s new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip is now available to order worldwide via Apple.com and the Apple Store app. Deliveries and in-store availability will begin next Friday, June 24.
While base models are still available for June 24 delivery, configurations that include upgraded storage and memory are already seeing shipping estimates slide into early August in the US.
Apple says the new laptop offers incredible performance, can access up to 24GB of unified memory, boasts ProRes acceleration, and up to 20 hours of battery life. It features the same design as the previous model, including a Touch Bar and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Inside of the laptop, it’s a different story, as it is powered by an M2 chip with an 8-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. Apple said the M2 chip has up to an 18% faster CPU, 35% faster GPU, and 40% faster Neural Engine compared to the M1 chip.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 24GB of unified memory and supports up to 2TB of SSD storage. Pricing starts at $1,299 in the United States. Silver and space gray color options are available.
