Apple's new MacBook Pro and the fancy touch bar versions have kicked off with pre-orders. You might want to upgrade because this new versions come with interesting upgrades and new improvements,plus it's now thinner, lighter and more powerful.

Interestingly, to upgrade to this improved versions you will need to have enough cash.

For the 13-inch MacBook Pro with no Touch Bar you will need to have a budget of $1,499/£1,449/AU$2,199, with touch bar you will need to have $1,799/£1,749/AU$2,699 and the 15-inch MacBook Pro will cost you $2,399/£2,349/AU$2,999.

But note that if you want one of the fancy Touch Bar versions, it won't begin shipping until two to three weeks from now.


Looking at the MacBook Pro keyBoard you would notice a significant change,compared to other laptops the Apple MacBook Pro has brought innovation into the KeyBoard design,what did they do?.....They removed the all famous Function keys and replaced them with a stylish and eye catching Touch Bar. The Touch Bar is a multi-touch OLED strip – essentially a long, narrow screen – which can be customised to display different controls, depending on what you’re doing at any moment. So if you're editing photos, the Touch Bar will feature tool shortcuts. If you're editing videos, you'll be able to see the whole timeline and scroll through it using the Touch Bar.It also features a Touch ID sensor which you can use as a secured password input system and also for app purchases or installation. 

When Apple promises better performance it's a certainty, the 15inch MacBook Pro model was built to perform,it features a 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and Radeon Pro 450 GPU with 2GB of VRAM. Configure it up to its top spec and those rise to a 2.9GHz CPU, 2TB SSD and Radeon Pro 460 with 4GB of VRAM.The 13inch model on the other hand comes in a variety of options, but somewhat confusing also comes in two different designs: an entry-level model with two USB-C ports and no Touch Bar/Touch ID, that starts with a 2.0GHz dual-core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and Intel Iris 540 graphics; and a model with four USB-C ports, a Touch Bar/Touch ID that starts with a 2.9GHz dual-core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and Intel Iris 550 graphics.

Apple would be introducing the latest versions of the MacBook Pro and Air Models before October runs out. Apple will launch both 13 and 15-inch models, continuing to offer the machine in the same sizes available today. Apple is also expected to launch a new 13-inch MacBook Air, but will not debut a new 11-inch MacBook Air machine.

The new 13-inch MacBook Air are said to include USB-C ports and Thunderbolt 3 support,the USB-C ports are further anticipated to be of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 flavor, making them zippier than the (Gen 1) port which Apple introduced with the 12-inch MacBook. Previous rumors have suggested the upcoming MacBook Pro will include four USB-C ports, doing away with an SD card slot, an HDMI port, USB-A ports, and a MagSafe connection.

It is also expected to feature a redesigned, thinner body with a flatter keyboard, an OLED display touch panel that replaces the physical function keys at the top of the keyboard, and Touch ID support.

Apple is currently working on the MacBook update that promises to be an outstanding one.The 13 & 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops that are coming soon promises to come with a retina display,a Touch ID sensor and an OLED  mini screen above the keyboard among many other new features.

The new MacBook is coming in a more unique form,its going to be more slimmer,lighter and would not come in the normal wedge shape like the 12-inch or MacBook Air.They are also considering on making more USB ports and probably changing it to USB Type-C ports to replace USB ports, the MagSafe port and even Thunderbolt ports as USB-C ports can support the Thunderbolt protocol.Also under the hood, Apple will most probably use the Intel Skylake processors, giving a performance boost and improving energy consumption. You can expect better Wi-Fi and Bluetooth chips as well,But the most significant addition will be a narrow OLED display right above the keyboard.

Sources like Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities and 9to5mac have confirmed that this is not a rumor.

Reports say that Apple won’t introduce the new MacBook Pro at the iPhone launch event that will likely happen on September 7. We could expect Apple introducing the new laptop in October. It’s about time.

This should be an interesting news to those who have been complaining that the MacBook Pro is embarrassingly outdated. The last major update was in June 2012, bringing a retina display and a thinner design to the MacBook Pro lineup.
