The (2017) MacBook Pro is razor-thin, feather-light and now even faster and more powerful than before. It has the brightest, most colourful Mac notebook display. It has new quad-core processors and high-performance Radeon Pro graphics on every configuration. Featuring the revolutionary Touch Bar — a Multi-Touch–enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to what you want to do, when you want to do it. The new MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas, and it’s ready for yours.
- The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of the keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more.
- The Touch ID gives you the option to make secure online payments using Apple Pay, as well as quick access to system settings and locked notes. You can also switch between users with a touch of a finger, making it ideal for sharing.
Intel’s 7th-generation i7 processor, codename Kaby Lake, is designed to make your laptop faster and more efficient. It’s purposely built to support Thunderbolt 3 for lightning-fast data transfer. Your laptop’s overall productivity will show improvement for flawless multi-tasking and playback of 4K Ultra-HD video will occur without delay or interruption.
Radeon Pro graphics
The 15-inch MacBook Pro features a powerful Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every configuration. Manufactured with a 14nm process, Radeon Pro graphics combine outstanding power with outstanding power efficiency. And now 4GB of GDDR5 memory gives you fluid, real-time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X.
Apple has redesigned the speakers to provide twice the dynamic range and up to 58 per cent more volume, with 2 and a half times louder bass for maximum boom. And these beauties are connected directly to system power to allow for up to 3 times more peak power.
Updated keyboard and trackpad
Typing is more precise and comfortable with Apple’s new, second-generation butterfly mechanism. The Forch Touch trackpad has increased to give your fingers more room to manoeuvre for improved clicking and scrolling.
Combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2.
