MacBook Pros now have a notch!

MacBook Pro Apple 2021

Much awaited since the launch of the Apple silicon program, the new MacBook Pro models are official. In short, they are obviously more powerful than their predecessors but above all offer a design with thinner edges around the screen: superb. A change despite everything to the detriment of the overall user experience, since at this price consumers will have to be content with a notch in the middle of the menu bar.

Fortunately, Apple takes the opportunity to qualify the sauce since its devices are seeing the return of MagSafe charging, as on the third generation AirPods. This prevents damage to the power port when the associated cable is torn violently. Another ghost: the SD card slot, which will delight photographers and other drone enthusiasts. Even the HDMI output is there!
