The MacBook Pro “Core i7” 2.7 13-Inch (Mid-2018 True Tone Display, Touch Bar, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) technically is a “configure-to-order” configuration of the MacBook Pro “Core i5” 2.3 13-Inch (Mid-2018 True Tone Display, Touch Bar, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports), but also is documented as a separate model for reader convenience. Other than processor (and the corresponding L2 cache), these two models are identical.
The MacBook Pro “Core i7” 2.7 13-Inch (Mid-2018 True Tone Display, Touch Bar, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) is powered by a 14 nm, 8th Generation “Coffee Lake” 2.7 GHz Intel “Core i7” processor (8559U), with four independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 128 MB of eDRAM embedded on the processor die, and an 8 MB shared level 3 cache. This notebook also packs 8 GB of onboard 2133 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (which could be upgraded to 16 GB at the time of purchase, but cannot be upgraded later), 256 GB or 512 GB of flash storage, and an integrated Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 graphics processor that shares memory with the system.
Externally, this notebook has an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam, a thin, backlit “third generation” butterfly mechanism keyboard with an integrated “Touch Bar” with a touch-sensitive control that adapts for different applications and provides Touch ID login support in lieu of traditional function keys, and a gigantic “Force Touch” trackpad.
Additionally, it has a high-resolution LED-backlit 13.3″ widescreen 2560×1600 (227 ppi, 500 nits) “Retina” display with True Tone technology, and a integrated battery that provides an Apple estimated 10 hours of runtime.
This notebook was sold in either silver colored aluminum or a darker “Space Gray” colored aluminum housing (but not other colors) and weighs just a bit more than 3 pounds (1.37 kg).
