Apple introduced its new 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro laptops at its “Unleashed” event on October 18th. The new design eliminates the Touch Bar in favor of a full-sized function row. Apple also added a notch to MacBook Pro screens for the first time, and brought back more port options, including an HDMI port, three Thunderbolt ports, an SD card slot, and a headphone jack.
We also get the return of the MagSafe charger with the new MacBook Pros, with Apple promising charging up to 50 percent within 30 minutes. The new laptops will also have Apple’s adaptive refresh rate technology ProMotion, and Mini-LED 120Hz refresh displays.
The 14-inch model starts at $1,999, and the 16-inch model starts at $2,499.
