Apple MacBook Pro 2016: 8 things you need to know

7) It's got a new keyboard and trackpad

There's a new Force Touch trackpad aboard all the new models, and it's big. Twice the size of the previous one, in fact.

The keyboard might look the same as before (minus the Touch Bar replacing the function keys, of course), but it's also had a makeover. It now uses a similar butterfly key action to the 12in MacBook, although Apple says it's been tweaked over those so that it feels better to type on.

8) It's gone up in price

The cheapest new model, the 13in with two USB-C ports and no Touch Bar, starts at RM6299; the 13in with four USB-C ports and Touch Bar begins at RM7599; and the 15in model will cost from RM10,199. Obviously you'll pay a lot more if you trick your chosen model out with faster processors and more storage. If that's all getting a bit pricey, you can also pick up the previous generation MacBook Pro from RM5499.

The entry-level model is shipping right away, while the others should be dispatched within three to four weeks.
