13-Inch MacBook Pro With M2 Chip Now Available to Order

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro with the M2 chip is now available to order worldwide via Apple.com and the Apple Store app. The first deliveries to customers and in-store availability will begin Friday, June 24, according to Apple.

Some built-to-order configurations with upgraded storage and memory already have shipping estimates pushing into early August in the United States.

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro features the same design as the previous model, including the Touch Bar and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. The only notable change is the 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.

With the M2 chip, the 13-inch MacBook Pro can be configured with up to 24GB of unified memory, whereas the M1 chip maxes out at 16GB of memory. The notebook also supports up to 2TB of SSD storage. In line with the previous model, pricing starts at $1,299 in the United States, with silver and space gray color options available to choose from.

Apple is also releasing a redesigned MacBook Air with the M2 chip, but it is not available to order until next month. One notable difference between the notebooks is that the MacBook Air features a fanless design, while the MacBook Pro has an active cooling system to ensure sustained performance for users with more demanding workflows.

Update: In addition to standard 13-inch MacBook Pro configurations, Apple is now accepting orders for upgraded built-to-order configurations.

Do yourself a favor and get this on sale for $1800 instead. Literally an extra $100 gets you a better machine in ever way.

My advice: wait and buy the MBA or MBP14. This MBP with Touch Bar is a nonsense product on Apple lineup.

Why does Apple keep it in the lineup? Because it is a huge seller and will have a ramp down before it’s decommissioned

Wait get read on new MBA 13.6” sales, and wait for launch of 15.4” MBA. Then, discontinue

By all measures, an incredible machine

I do wonder how many of these they will sell.
My guess is a lot, close to their predictions too ;)
