Microsoft Offers Huge Discounts on a Surface Device With MacBook Trade

It's not clear when the new Touch Bar features of Microsoft Office for Mac will be available, but they'll probably arrive in time for the laptop's launch.

Mac users of Office 365 are set to benefit from a full Skype for Business client and Touch Bar features on Word, Excel, Outlook, Skype and PowerPoint, if they have one of the new Apple MacBook Pro 2016 models.

The 13-inch model is 14.9mm thick and weighs 3 pounds, while the 15-inch model weighs 4 pounds and is 15.5mm thick.

"The new MacBooks are the best notebooks we have ever made, and are the most advanced notebooks ever made". Apple is also making a lower specification 13in version, which does not have the Touch Bar or Touch ID, and only has two Thunderbolt ports. As a matter of fact, if you want to buy the Mac with Touch Bar and TouchID you get options to choose the size of the screen.

The new 2016 MacBook Pro comes at a time where Apple seems to be losing traction in its efforts of being the most innovative company around.

The two MacBook Pro devices revealed come with four of these ports which mean you can charge or transfer data at 40Gbps from any direction.

The model announced last night has the usual improvements: it's lighter and thinner than any previous MacBook and has a slightly longer battery life.

Looking at the physical dimensions, the Surface i7 is taller, wider, denser, and sleek than the 13 inch variant of Apple MacBook Pros. As per the CNET reported, Apple replaced the traditional function keys with the touch screen powered with 60 pixels OLED.

The 13-inch MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar and Touch ID starts at £1,749, and features a 2.9 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.3GHz, 8GB of memory and 256GB of flash storage. The fingerprint sensor is available for all MacBook variants except for the basic one, whereas the feature is void in case of Microsoft's latest notebook. By the by, Apple closed its MacBook Air line.

Fans have been waiting for like ages to get an update of Macbook Pro released back in 2012. Excel, on the other hand, gives you access to the recently used functions in the Touch Bar which can be quite useful if you are an Excel power user.
