Apple Rolls Out 15-inch MacBook Pro with Force Touch and Cheaper iMac Retina

You don’t always have to wait for a keynote for new Apple products, as is the case today with a sneaky rollout of some new Macbook Pro and iMac with Retina 5K configs.

The coolest new update is a 15-inch MacBook Pro that features Force Touch trackpad, previously only found in the 13-inch version. It also has a new AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics card, along with slightly improved battery life. That should be a boon to designers, gamers, and video editors who need as much horsepower as they can get. The new 15-inch MacBook Pros come in two models, priced at £1,599 and £1,999.

Also updated are the prices of Apple’s line of iMacs with Retina 5K displays. The cheapest model is now £1,599, and the top-end model is £1,849. By going for the cheaper model you are sacrificing the 1TB hybrid Fusion drive for a traditional hard disk, as well as a slightly slower processor.

All the new setups are available now at the Apple Store.
