Reasons why you will want a new MacBook Pro – but the price probably isn’t one of them

The new MacBook Pro has finally been unveiled and is thought to be the best laptop Apple has ever made.

It has a new design and plenty of new features so we have decided to look at just 5 reasons why you will want one.

1. Thinner and lighter than ever before

The new 13-inch MacBook Pro is 17% thinner and 23% less volume than previous models making it a great deal lighter. The larger 15-inch version is 14% thinner and 20% less volume and around 200g lighter than the previous edition.

It may not quite compare with the super-skinny MacBook but it will easily fit in your bag for those of you who are looking for something portable.

2. Better Display

The Retina display has now improved even more – and we thought it was good before! The screen is now a whopping 67% brighter and also has 67% extra contrast and is the first MacBook display to support the same wide colour technology first introduced with the iPhone 7.

3. New Touch Bar

The new Retina-quality Multi-Touch panel sits at the top of the keyboard and adapts itself to the main display.

It is compatible with all Apple software including Messages, Maps, Photos and Pages along with easy access to third party programs such as Microsoft Office and Photoshop making it the biggest new feature on the MacBook Pro.

4. Apple Pay and Touch ID


To the right of the Touch Bar is a Touch ID scanner that is capable of unlocking the device with just your fingerprint.

This also allows you to make payments via Apple Pay so you will never have to type in your credit card details again.

5. More Power

The 15-inch MacBook Pro is powered by a quad-core Intel Core i7 chip, coupled with 16GB of RAM, with improved Radeon graphics performance and up to 2TB of storage via iCloud.

Meanwhile, the entry level 13-inch versions includes a dual-core Intel’s powerful i5 chip, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space.
