According to the rumors, Apple is working on a new 16-inch MacBook Pro that could be coming later this year. Now, Apple’s MacBook Pro series of laptops were never really that cheap to begin with, with the price only going up with the 15-inch model, so as you can imagine, the 16-inch MacBook Pro will most likely not come cheap either.
If for whatever reason you were hoping against hope that the 16-inch models would still be somewhat reasonable, think again. This is because according to a report from the Economic Daily News, they are reporting that the 16-inch MacBook Pro could be priced starting at a whopping $3,000.
Apparently this has to do with the display of the laptop, where it will see a jump in its resolution. The current 15-inch MacBook Pro has a resolution of 2880×1800, but the report claims that the resolution of the 16-inch MacBook Pro will be bumped up to 3072×1920. It’s not a huge jump and we reckon it will still be high enough for the display to be considered as “Retina”.
That being said, there is a good chance that this new model could truly be aimed at the “pros” who might have a need for a slightly larger display. It also wouldn’t be Apple’s first time at creating a computer with a ridiculous price tag.
