This means you can pick up a MacBook Pro from under £1,000, the MacBook Air costs under £750 and the new super-slim MacBook cost £1,049.

Recently, Apple received an email from a customer who failed to understand the Cupertino company's logic for restricting the RAM in its new models of MacBook Pro. For example, the new 13-inch Mac without a Touch Bar is £1,449 (equivalent to $1,826) in the United Kingdom, and the new 13-inch with a Touch Bar is £1,749 (equivalent to $2,130). You can use it for security, like logging into your computer or switching between users, and access Apple Pay with the touch of your fingerprint. One thing that separates the cheapest 13-inch version from the other is that there is no Touch Bar in it.

The new feature seems to be making the MacBook Pro more prone to damages as the OLED strip is easily cracked, according to Andrew Goldberg, iFixit lead teardown engineer.

Speaking of touch controls, it's also important to note that the computer's track pad is twice as large as previous models. One of the eye catching feature of the MacBook Pro was the replacement of the Mac's row function keys to a Touch Bar which is a mini Retina display. With the 11-inch MacBook Air out of the picture, the MacBook is the smallest portable laptop that Apple has to offer at this point of time.
