Finally, Apple has updated its 15-inch Macbook Pro with the “Force Touch” trackpad. The machine is now available in stores starting at $1,999.
The “Force Touch” trackpad was earlier seen in the 13-inch model Apple introduced in March. Speculations went high regarding having the same feature in the 15-inch model. The MacBook pro also got an hour of extra battery life, which means total battery life would be nine hours.
Force Touch has specific functions related to the force of the finger. If you press it down hard on an address, it may open up a map. If you hold-press on a word, you will get synonyms and meanings of that word.
While $1,999 is the price for the basic version, you can also choose the one at $2499. According to Apple, this one will have 80% faster graphics than ever before. Flash storage has been also made two-and-a-half times faster compared to what it was.
For the $1,999 model, the flash storage is 256GB, while for the upper version, the storage would be 512 GB. 2.5 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor will continue to be in the higher version with speed of 3.7 GHz. Both models will come with 16GB memory.
As far as the 27-inch iMAC is concerned, Apple has brought a cheaper version to the market which will be available at $1,799 with 1TB storage. The other information about the specs that are not changed is available on the Apple web page.
As reported earlier, Apple was about to announce these updates for the two devices but more were expected by users. The update was announced quietly, too. Maybe something else is coming up for users in the next few days.
