MacBook Pro

Mac Format - - STORE GUIDE -

Ap­ple de­buted the new MacBook Pro in Oc­to­ber with an OLED strip of app spe­cific con­trols called the Touch Bar. This re­places the func­tion keys with a row of con­text-sen­si­tive short­cuts.

The Force Touch track­pad was made larger to pro­vide more room for ges­tures, and the key­board was also up­dated with a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion ver­sion of the but­ter­fly keys found in the 12-inch MacBook. Mem­ory speed in all mod­els ex­cept the en­try-level 13-inch was up­graded to 2133MHz, and all new mod­els are thin­ner and lighter.

The ports saw sub­stan­tive changes, too. You’ll now get ei­ther two or four Thun­der­bolt 3 ports (de­pend­ing on the model), which are also com­pat­i­ble with USB-C de­vices, and through which you charge the MacBook Pro. The 13-inch and 15-inch sizes re­main, al­though the en­try-level 13-inch lacks a Touch Bar.
