It’s faster and more powerful than before, yet remarkably thinner and lighter. It has the brightest, most colorful Mac notebook display ever. And it introduces the Touch Bar — a Multi-Touch enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to the tools you want, right when you want them. The new MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas. And it’s ready for yours.
A touch of genius. Watch the design film »
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.2 It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more. And for the first time, Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.
-Even more ways the Touch Bar gives you quick access to commands.
The new MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there faster than ever with cutting-edge graphics, high-performance processors, state-of-the-art storage, and more.
Graphics performance up to twice as fast.
The 15-inch MacBook Pro features a powerful Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every configuration, delivering up to 130 percent faster graphics performance than the previous generation.1 Manufactured with a cutting-edge 14 nm process, Radeon Pro graphics deliver up to 2.5x more computing power per watt. And with 64MB of embedded DRAM, the 13-inch model provides up to 103 percent faster integrated graphics than the previous generation.5 That means more time for what matters most — creating amazing work.
The new display in the MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features brighter LED backlighting and an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. And it’s the first Mac notebook to support wide color, for even more vibrant greens and reds. This ensures truer-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.
MacBook Pro now features P3 color, which makes 25 percent more colors available than standard RGB — revealing a much broader range of greens and reds. MacBook Pro includes a solid-state drive that’s even faster than the previous generation, with sequential read speeds up to 3.1GB/s. The 15-inch model is the first available with a 2TB SSD — enough space to take even your biggest projects with you, without having to take an external drive.
And its memory is faster than ever before. It all works together to help you boot up, launch multiple apps, or import huge files in a flash.
