macbook-pro-2016

Apple Premium Resellers in South Africa such as Digicape and iStore have started listing the new MacBook Pro on their websites.

The new range of MacBook Pro laptop computers from Apple were unveiled at the end of October.

Besides decreases in weight and thickness compared to its predecessor, the laptops feature an upgraded display, CPUs and GPUs, and SSD drives.

A stand-out feature of the new MacBook Pro is the Touch Bar – a thin OLED screen which acts as a dynamic touch display, responsive to taps and presses.

Apple also unveiled a new MacBook Pro 13-inch which does not have the Touch Bar – a model which is set to replace the MacBook Air.

Retailers in South Africa are only listing the default configurations of the new MacBook Pro on their websites, priced as follows:
