With the success of the previous retina MacBook pro additions, Apple brings in the newest 15-inch Macbook pro with a suggested retail price of SG$2788, equipped with the new touchpad, 5K retina display, plus updated graphics for high-resolution games.

New & Improved Force Touch

With in-built force seniors and a Taptic Engine, the new Force Click trackpad now allows you to customise and unify the pressure of your clicks.  What’s more, it supports a wider range of new gestures, including the new Force Click, and more APIs available for third party developers to include Force Touch into their Apps-I guess we’ll be seeing a lot more Force Touch apps with this feature in time to come.

Better Graphics

The new AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics provided on Final Cut Pro X enables 80% faster performance in editing of videos, enabling 3D images to appear better than better on High Resolution and Pro-graphic apps.
