Apple announced on Thursday, Oct. 27th that the MacBook Pro will get a long overdue update, creating a model with a sleeker design, touch capabilities and more.

According to an article by Wired, the new Pro will look like the last model, with 13 inch or 15 inch screen options. While the model is lighter, thinner, faster and brighter, it still holds four USB ports and yes, there is still a headphone jack.

The new MacBook Pro has a much larger trackpad and has the same keyboard as the thinner MacBook. The article describes it as a mix between the traditional mechanical keyboard and the on-screen keys on your iPhone. 

A “Touch Bar” is also available to display quick controls and information and consists of a touch ID fingerprint reader.

The new Pro is $1,499, but to get the Touch Bar, you’ll have to shell out $1,799 for the 13 inch model or $2,399 for the 15 inch model. But then again, you get what you pay for.
