Apple's new MacBook is the thinnest and lightest Pro series but the biggest change is a new OLED touch panel above the standard keyboard, which replaces the multi-function “F” keys, and allows dynamic shortcuts to functions such as volume control and window management.
“This week marks the 25th anniversary of Apple’s first notebook; through the years each generation has introduced new innovations and capabilities, and it’s fitting that this all-new generation of MacBook Pro is the biggest leap forward yet,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
Schiller said: “With the groundbreaking new Touch Bar, the convenience of Touch ID, the best Mac display ever, powerful performance, improved audio, blazing fast storage and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity in our thinnest and lightest pro notebook yet, the new MacBook Pro is the most advanced notebook ever made.”
As the slimmest Pro series, Wrappers sleeves will be available in a slimmer version. Here's the new Touch Bar series Height Weight and Depth plus Weight spec:
Apple MacBook Pro 13 inch with Touch Bar
Apple MacBook Pro 15 inch with Touch Bar
Apple signalled it is taking note of the high cost of buying its phones when it introduced a small price cut to its latest range, compared to the price hike of last year's comparable models. But the new iPhone Pro 11" models are still a big expense, that you will want to consider protecting with a case.
