    Hi all,
    I am confused in regards to the refreshment of the 13''. What is actually updated?
    - still 8th gen processor.
    - iGPU seems to be the same also.
    - new keyboard.

    Is anything actually updated besides the keyboard that would be noticeable in real life?

    as far as I can see, seems it's only the processor

    Aside from the keyboard changes it looks like just a 100mhz boost to the base clock from 2.3ghz i5 to 2.4ghz i5, and from 2.7ghz i7 to 2.8ghz i7. Same 8th generation processor, presumably still the 28w variant, although I can't find anymore details about it online. Overall really disappointing.

    Slight processor speed bump, updated keyboard.
    Can someone confirm if the SSD speeds are the same? They may be a touch higher?

    It's a good old-fashioned speed bump. Still not going to buy one, the keyboard shouldn't be a controversial component but it is.
