Apple's supercharged new MacBooks arrive 7 June, starting at £1,249

New MacBook Pros and iMacs, featuring the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors, will land in the UK later this month.

Apple's 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros and skinny MacBooks have been given an update, featuring more powerful processors. There's a new entry-level 13-inch Pro configuration too, which starts at a lower price of £1,249. All the new models will be available to buy in the UK on Wednesday, 7 June.

The 13-inch Pro models pack Intel's latest "Kaby Lake" processors, up to the Core i7 model, with speeds up to 3.5GHz (with a turbo option up to 4GHz). The 15-inch Pros can be configured for speeds up to 4.1GHz, which should be more than enough to chew through those video edits. The top-end 15-inch Pro with 16GB RAM and 2TB of storage will set you back £3,969.

The entry-level £1,249 13-inch Pro uses a 2.3GHz dual-core chip with 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. Prices do of course ramp up pretty quickly depending on what you want inside. The top-end 13-inch pro, with a 3.5GHz Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD will cost £2,799. Better start saving now. 

Apple has also furnished its skinny MacBook with faster Kaby Lake processors (they start at £1,249), while its iMac desktop line can now be configured with twice the amount of RAM as before (up to 32GB), with faster SSD storage drives, brighter displays and Intel Kaby Lake processors too. The 21.5-inch iMac with a 2.3GHz processor and 8GB RAM now starts at £1,049. Spec it up to include a 3.6GHz chip, the maximum 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD and it'll cost you £2,799.

The 27-inch model with a 3.4GHz processor, 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage starts at £1,749, configurable to include a 4.2GHz Core i7 chip, 64GB of RAM and a 2TB SSD, costing £4,949.

The iMac range is also joined by a Pro model, which packs in up to 18-core processors, up to 128GB of RAM, powerful discrete graphics and a 27-inch 5K display. It's due to go on sale in December, and its $4,999 US price converts to roughly £3,870.
