During the Apple Special Event held on 27 October 2016, the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar was revealed. As the new MacBook Pro is the thinnest MacBook ever, the MacBook Air will be discontinued. The 13″ version without the Touch Bar will start at $1,499 but is also available with the new Touch Bar for $1,799. The bigger 15″ variant comes with a $2,399 price tag. The notebook is powered by one of the four Thunderbolt 3 ports that, as you probably already knew, share the shape of a USB-C port. The only additional port is a 3.5mm headphone jack. That’s right. No SD card reader, no MagSafe, no “regular” USB port, no HDMI. The 13″ version without the Touch Bar starts shipping today while the other versions start shipping in 2-3 weeks.
