Need a laptop upgrade? Apple just announced its new MacBook Pro
After four years, Apple has finally made some significant changes to its MacBook line up, with a brand-new MacBook Pro announced today. Thinner and lighter than the MacBooks before it, the new MacBook Pro is smaller, but still comes in 13-inch and 15-inch models. The biggest change on the new MacBook Pro is that Apple removed the top row of keys on the keyboard, replacing it with a Retina touchscreen display called Touch Bar. That top row has been home to the escape button, volume and brightness controls, and other function keys for years. Touch Bar is an adaptable control bar that changes depending on the application you're using on your computer. It's customizable, so you can program it with the features you use most often. It also includes a Touch ID reader, built into the power button, so you can unlock the MacBook and authorize Apple Pay payments with your fingerprint. That feature has only been available on iPhones and iPads until now.
