A new MacBook and Apple Watch weren’t the only things Apple announced almost one year ago at their big 2015 unveil. Despite being 9 months old, the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro still stands out as the top dog to beat with its significant improvements over its predecessor, such as fifth-generation Intel Core processors, Iris 6100 graphics cards, faster flash storage, 10 hours of battery life, faster RAM, and the much acclaimed Force Touch trackpad.


One of the coolest things about the Force Touch trackpad is the fact that it adds a whole new layer to Mac OS X. You’ll now be able to use a deeper secondary press to accomplish a whole range of previous inaccessible actions like looking up meanings for words you may not know on Safari or seeing a preview of a website which is linked in an article with just a simple Force Click. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro reaches a harmony of portability, power, and battery life previously unseen in any computer. If you’re a Mac user which is due for an upgrade, make sure that this is the machine you upgrade to.
