It’s been almost four years since Apple updated its MacBook Pro. Now the all the waiting is over as Apple revealed the newly refreshed version of the Pro, featuring, as the leaks suggested, a secondary display between keyboard and screen called a touch bar.

MacBook Pro will be available in three variants including 13-inch one with no touch bar, another 13-inch one with touch bar and the last one 15-inch with touch

According to the company, the 13-inch version is the thinnest and the lightest version of the Pro till this date with 14.9 mm thick, making it 13 percent thinner than the Air. The 15-inch version weighs four pounds and the 13-inch version weighs 3 pounds.

Specifications of 13-inch model:
  • 2.0GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor
  • Turbo Boost up to 3.1Ghz
  • 256GB PCIe-based SSD
  • 8GB of 1866MHz memory
  • Intel Iris Graphics 540
  • Force Touch Trackpad
  • Two Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Price: $1,499/-
Specifications of the 13-inch model with Touch bar and Touch ID:
  • 2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor
  • Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz
  • 256GB PCIe-based SSD
  • 8GB of 2133MHz memory
  • Intel Iris Graphics 550
  • Force Touch Trackpad
  • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Price: $1,799/-

The 15-inch version weighs four pounds and features 67 percent brighter display with 67 percent contrast and a color gamut. That is a quarter brighter than its predecessor and coupled with some improved speakers for the system. Inside you will find i7 chips cooled by a new thermal architecture. Also, the graphics performance has been improved, with speeds up to 130 percent faster than the last model.

On the outer side, you will find 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports. if you are really geeky then you can use 15-inch version to run 5K displays side by side. Don’t worry headphone jack is still there. Oh, what a relief!

Specifications of the 15-inch model with Touch bar and Touch ID:
  • 2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor
  • Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz
  • 256GB PCIe-based SSD
  • 16GB of 2133MHz memory
  • Radeon Pro 450 with 2GB of memory
  • Force Touch Trackpad
  • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Price: $2,399/-

Note: It looks like Apple has now completely ditched the MacBook Air because the new 13-inch model is thinner which costs you the same.
