Last week, Apple announced the most high-end laptop it has ever produced: a MacBook Pro with a 16-inch screen that can be maxed out with a 2.4GHz 8-core Intel i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz, 64GB of RAM, and up to 8TB of SSD storage—and a price tag of more than $6000. The standard model, which starts at a mere $2,400, comes with a 2.6GHz 6-core Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz, an AMD Radeon Pro 5300M GPU with 4GB of memory, 16GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory and a 512GB SSD.
Now, Apple has made this already highly desirable laptop an even more drool-worthy prospect for (well-heeled) photographers and videographers: The support document for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro reveals that the new laptop can power dual 6K displays, including, of course, Apple’s Pro Display XDR, which was announced in June. Alternatively, if 6K is a little over the top for you, you can also hook up four 4K displays. Various other configurations are possible.
Driving these huge high-res (6016 x 3384px) monitors requires some serious grunt work: Apple recommends plugging one monitor into each side of the laptop, thereby using a separate Thunderbolt 3 bus for each Pro Display. To buy your dream post-processing rig, all you need to do now is write a check for around $13K…
