Why Apple Is Not Removing Physical Keyboard From Its MacBooks, Mac Computers

15 November, 2016, 05:34 | Author: Lloyd Doyle

Of course all of this hinges on you getting the new MacBook Pro. However, you won't get a chance to play around with the Touch Bar, which is arguably the only major downside of this model.

It continued the clamshell design of the previous MacBook, with rounded corners. For me, the ideal MacBook Pro is actually a mashup between this and last year's model.

The 15-inch model still skips the entry-level Core i5 processors and goes with higher-end i7 chips - jumping up to Intel's 6th-gen silicon this time around. The entire package is now priced at $1,499.

Here is a walkthrough of the 6 reasons to buy the 2016 MacBook Pro and the reasons you should look at Windows PCs, buy a 2015 MacBook Pro or wait for the 2017 MacBook Pro.

Slice Intelligence created a graph to demonstrate where the sales stand as of October 31, though the information was pulled from sales numbers - specifically by reviewing "hundreds of millions" of e-receipts - and not exact units sold, so there is a possibility that the numbers are more skewed towards Apple.

Remember all the jokes people made about the lack of a physical escape key on the new MacBook Pro models with a Touch Bar at the top of the keyboard?

The laptop's speakers have reportedly been improved. Supply chain-tracking site DigiTimes reported that the firm is ramping up its MacBook Pro orders to suppliers.

While the utility of the Touch Bar is questionable, there are already a number of apps that support the interesting new technology, with Apple claiming that many more are on the way, both from itself and third-party developers. Image editing has become easier because of the larger surface area. Hence, it took the new MacBook Pro just five days of online sales to outperform what its predecessors managed to achieve in a much longer time, which is around one and a half years to be exact.

The new MacBook Pro is packed with advanced display resolution with a 2560 x 1600 227, while the MacBook Air will have a 1440 x 900 128 pixels per inch (PPI) offering.
