LG's UltraFine 5K Display Was Made For Apple's New MacBook Pro

LG's UltraFine 5K Display Was Made For Apple's New MacBook Pro

This is what is happening right now with the Touch Bar, a feature that Apple presented earlier this week and which is essentially a touchscreen placed at the top of the new MacBook keyboard that can be configured to perform a wide variety of tasks depending on the app.

Ok, so we already know one of the main features of the new MacBook Pro before it was officially released, but as for the other features, that was all guesswork.

A 13-inch MacBook Pro starts at $2,199 in Australia for the 256 GB model. So, for example, if you are at the Desktop, the Touch Bar will look just like the function keys on your current Mac, complete with the escape key; brightness, volume, and music playback controls; and the like.

The 13-inch model weighs only 3 pounds, the lightest among the new models, while the 15-inch computer weighs 5 pounds including the track pad that is very much bigger than the previous model.

Apple has made many changes with its new MacBook Pro models, which were launched last week, and the response has been mixed. Apple will still sell older MacBook Pros at those prices, along with less expensive MacBook and MacBook Air models.

Faced with a promising new competitor in the form of Microsoft's Surface Studio, Apple finally unveiled its new MacBook Pro during the company's keynote event on October 27.

One of the biggest reasons to wait for the 2016 MacBook Pro is the new design.

But the Mac has remained a significant product for Apple, since co-founder Steve Jobs introduced the first model in 1984, and it commands intense loyalty from fans. The highest-end model is priced at $2,799.

"97-percent of people that have a Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book use on-screen touch input regularly."
. It has all but killed off its popular Air line of ultra-portable computers, replacing it with the 13-inch version of the Macbook Pro or 12-inch Macbook.

"The 13" model with the standard function keys will ship today, while the 13-inch and 15-inch models with Touch Bar will start shipping 2-3 weeks.

Bob O'Donnell, president of TECHnalysis Research LLC, said before the Mac announcement that the market believes focus on the iPhone means Apple has "almost given up on Macs", which has led to losing market share to other personal computers.

The company also said that it would integrate Twitter Inc. feeds into live sports games on Apple TV, adding a social element to the product.
