MacBook Pro 16- inch gets New GPU + Apple Card Financing Launches

Prepare yourselves, ladies and gentlemen, because today we got good news, we got terrible news, and we got more good news, which might be bad news depending on how you look at it. Let's begin.
Firstly, the MacBook Pro has now got a GPU edition I'm hesitant to call this an update, mostly because it didn't change the price points or many of the other internals of the MacBook Pro. It's merely an extra GPU option that wasn't there before. And this one took quite a big jump before on the maxed-out MacBook Pro. You had two different GPU options to choose from. And to get a slightly better GPU with the MacBook Pro, you had to spend an extra 100 bucks and now to get this even newer GPU, you have to spend an additional 700 bucks, so 75% improvement in graphics performance, which is pretty high. That's a pretty good GPU addition, but you will be paying quite a bit for it which. I can imagine why a lot of people are upset! Because I'm sure that part does not cost 700 bucks; however, it is in a fragile, mighty machine. So for those of you who wanted a better GPU in their 60s inch MacBook Pro, you now have that option. I apologize if you bought one already and you wished you had this from the get-go. But the idea is Apple wants to keep the latest greatest technology available for those who haven't bought one yet and are now buying one. But the bad news from this situation is I know there's a lot of you asking about will we get a 16 inch MacBook Pro refresh, whether it's a spec boost or price changes or design changes or that kind of thing at dub DC this year. And this pretty much confirms it will not be happening anytime Apple does something small like this, and they add a slightly better GPU or a new storage option right before a keynote. That's typical because there's nothing at the keynote for that particular product and I still think there's a decent chance of there being a 16 inch MacBook Pro refresh this year. It's just that today's update essentially confirms that it won't be happening anytime soon. That means 16 inch MacBook Pro with new CPUs or with updated pricing and that kind of thing. Probably not going to happen until at the very earliest October of this year, which again should make you kind of hesitant to buy this MacBook Pro Upgrade as well because you might see new GPU option and say hey there's an update there's something I couldn't buy yesterday and that will allow me to play Minecraft much better on my dedicated gaming machine which is a MacBook but if they do end up doing another spec boost more than likely be at the very end of this year so that should give you some insight on the timeline but the article I did last week ended up coming true which was about the apple card getting financing options it appears that that report was entirely 100% accurate in fact, they have launched the apple card financing options before dub dub DC which is appropriate as there should be some new hardware coming out to finance but yeah between air pods the home pod Apple TV, iPads Mac even the pro display xDr you can now pay for them with zero percent interest over the course of 12 months or six months depending on how expensive it is. And after doing some of the math of the numbers, they showcase of like hey, this cost $26 and 50 cents a month and appears that when you do the 12-month financing option, it's slightly cheaper by like a couple of pennies so yes.
They do legit means zero per cent interest because you will end up paying slightly less if you finance it but again by a matter of pennies, so not much less but again, I advise people out there that are thinking about doing the 12-month financing because you might see a new MacBook that you want to buy. It's now 200 to 300 a month for a year instead of you know, three or four grand all upfront make sure you can afford it because the trick here that Apple is hoping a lot of people fall for is that you start buying a bunch of stuff. After all, you're just looking at the monthly cost and then by the end of it you're going to have a giant bill at the end of every single month that you won't be able to pay so be reasonable about it. Okay, you're still paying a lot of money for a product you have more time to pay it off. But the only Apple product you seem not to be able to finance bizarrely is the Apple Watch. I'm not entirely sure why they don't let you finance that but yeah, even the home pod they will let you finance over a six-month block which I was not expecting, but it's here other good news. Bad news depending on how you look at it is Apple is soon to be launching a back to school bundle which means. If you buy an eligible iPad or Mac, you will get air pods included for free which is a first. Because in previous years, Apple has always done Back to School programs. These are not new so to those people freaking out that you just bought an iPad or a Mac a few weeks ago and now you're crazy that you're not getting free air pods. I mean there was plenty of warning for this guys. They do the same thing every year where they include some pair of Beats headphones or some hundred dollar gift card if you buy an eligible iPad or Mac during the back to school season that happens so often I don't know how you can predict it at this point. But yes, if you are willing to wait a little bit longer, you will soon be able to get a pair of air pods to and now that the site has updated we know that you can get air pods to included for free when buying an iPad Pro which is now a discounted pricing as well as even the iPad Air at $480. And if you would like to upgrade to air pods pro it will just cost you an additional $90 as well as an additional $40 if you want the wireless charging case with air pods included so you don't even know to finance those iPads get it for a school that's all that matters or at least get the free air pods so that you can sell them and knock off a bit of the price point of your MacBook, but last tiny sliver of news is that Apple is going to be adding some more user upgradeable SSDs for the Mac Pro so let me be clear Mac Pro. Okay, some people were reading into this too much thinking you'd be able to upgrade your SSD for your MacBook or your IMAX or things like that. Nope, this is just for that right old $6,000 Mac Pro rolling down the hallway because the wheels don't lock and at the time of recording this, they have not officially launched it yet, but everyone's reporting on it. So apparently, it's confirmed, but yeah, between one terabyte to eight terabyte SSD, you'll be able to open up your Mac Pro and slide them in, which is excellent for those of you who bought the abysmal 256 gig SSD configuration now that you'll be able to plug it in directly internally I'm sure the SSD prices are probably going to be kind of high. Still, you know the Mac Pro is modular. So here are more modules for you. And before I go, I thought I would inform you some bad news that the Apple Mac Pro wheels at 700 bucks, Do not have financing options, you can pay that off over a six or 12-month period. The Pro display you can over a 12-month block. It's only going to be 416 bucks a month. Doable but yeah the wheels you have to pay for upfront why apple? Come on; people need these dang wheels. These are pure.
