The 13-inch MacBook Pro now tops out at 2 TB of SSD storage, a 2.7 GHz (4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost) i7 quad-core processor, and 16 GB of RAM.

Aside from the spec increases, the MacBook Pros also have True Tone displays, iPad technology that allows the screen to dynamically shift color temperature based on the color temperature of the room.
