We got to know about this from some Apple resellers and they confirmed stock availability. But the Mumbai-based retailer said they have not received the units yet. The 2016 MacBook Pro is yet to be listed on any e-commerce website. So it looks like the stock has just started arriving. To recall, the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar costs Rs 1,29,900.
The new MacBook Pro is much lighter and thinner than its previous variant. And it has a high-speed Intel Skylake CPU. The Touch Bar variant has an OLED display instead of function buttons and shows information about the current application and context. The Touch Bar variant has an integrated Touch ID sensor that allows you to unlock the laptop and make payments with Apple Pay.
The 13-inch MacBook Pro that comes with the function button doesn’t have a Touch ID sensor or an OLED panel. The base model is powered by a 2.0 GHz Intel 6th Generation ‘Skylake’ Core i5 dual-core processor. There is 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 256 GB storage. The 13-inch model has an integrated Intel Iris Graphics 540. Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2 support is available in this laptop. It features a 13.3-inch Retina (2560×1600 pixels) LED backlit display with IPS technology. The density of the screen is 227 ppi. For connectivity, it has 3.5mm audio jack and Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) port.
Let us tell you that only the variant without Touch Bar is being sold in India. And the Touch Bar variant is yet to arrive in the Indian market. The 13-inch variant costs Rs 1,55,900 and the 15-inch variant costs Rs 2,05,900.
