    Default MacBook Pros Get New Force Touch Trackpad, Broadwell CPUs, Improved Battery & More


    Apple’s MacBook Pro lineup was recently given a refresh at the “Sprint Forward” event, bringing the new Force Touch trackpad with haptic feedback as well as Intel’s latest-generation Broadwell processors to the 13-inch MacBook Pro. So what exactly do the new features bring to the table?

    The Force Touch trackpad sports four force sensors that can detect how much pressure users apply to the surface. The sensitivity of each sensor, which is located in the trackpad’s four corners, can be adjusted in the software allowing users to click anywhere. The new “Force Click” gesture will trigger different actions in mac OS X depending on where users click. Among those Apple showed are force clicking an address to show its location on a map, force clicking a word to bring up its Wikipedia entry and fast-forwarding through a movie in Quicktime based on the force of the click. Furthermore, the new MacBook Pro also features the Taptic Engine that was first unveiled with Apple Watch. This unit provides haptic feedback for touches and can also be adjusted by the user.

    The new MacBook Pros also have new Flash memory that is reportedly twice as fast coupled with battery life that now lasts up to 10 hours of uptime on a single charge. Apple is set to begin shipping the new models starting today.

    What really is the point of having the 13" "Pro" model....

    It's far from Pro and for the same price you get a better spec'd non-Pro MacBook.

    There is no Pro's about it, only the 13" got upgraded

    The stickershock on the new Macbook hit me like an unkind slap to the face. I wasn't prepared for it. $1500 for a 12" laptop is absolutely insane.

    Exactly. They made it from scratch. Everything is new. Of course, they are going to charge more. U get 256 not 128gb. 13" air 128 is normally 999, unless on sale.
