MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar is now available in India

The Kerala-based Apple re-seller named IT NET just tweeted that Apple’s new  MacBook Pro 2016 lineup with the Touch Bar is now available to purchase in India. The MacBook Pro 13″ starts at Rs. 1,55,900 and the 15″ variant starts at Rs 2,05,900. The re-seller has mentioned that the stocks are limited and if you are interested then you should call in and book immediately before it goes out of stock.

The new MacBook Pro is thinner and lighter than the previous generation and it comes in 13-inch and 15-inch models. The new MacBook Pro still maintains the leveled designed, unlike the MacBook Air which is thinner on the front end and thicker on the back and surprisingly it is also thinner than the MacBook Air. It still follows the same design as the previous Mac Pros with the bezels across the screen and the keyboard narrowed down a little bit.

The new MacBook Pro features a touch sensitive strip Apple is calling it the “Touch Bar”, A little utility control panel that will give you access to screen brightness, media controls, and some native app controls. The touch sensitive strip is configurable for the supporting applications according to the user requirements. What that mean is it will show different controls for different applications and that feature looks really promising.There is also a fingerprint scanner at the right end of the strip so that you can use the TouchID to unlock your mac or for making online payments.

There are also few big changes in the core hardware department. Apple is ditching one of their best innovations, its Magsafe connector for the USB Type-C. It looks like Apple is finally realizing that the USB Type-C is the future and it also saves a lot of space, and we have already seen from the new iPhone launch Apple will do anything to save the space. The MacBook Pro comes up with four USB Type-C connectors and that’s all. That means there is no HDMI port, no card reader or no USB 3.1 port thank god there is a headphone jack. All four USB Type-C ports are Thunderbolt and are capable of driving 5K display panels you can use any of them to charge your MacBook. The new MacBooks are also way faster than the previous generation models it performs 130% faster in the gaming than the previous models.

Stay tuned for the updates.
