As I’m sure you’ve all heard, Apple updated the MacBook Pro line this week. The big excitement is that they’ve replaced the function keys with an OLED touch screen they’ve called Touch Bar. They added Touch ID to the right side of the Touch Bar. They got rid of the mechanical trackpad, replacing it with a force touch trackpad that’s twice as big as the old one. The list goes on and on of the improvements they’ve made.
I’d like to walk through these improvements, specifically targeting the 15″ model, and give you my take on them. I’d like to start with the price because I’m hearing a lot of complaints about that. I dug out my receipt for my late 2013 MacBook Pro (that I keep in Home Inventory from Binary Formations) to do a comparison.
