Macbook has a modest user base here in Nepal, and with the new MacBook Pros out, if you’ve been wondering when you could get your hands on these new beasts, then wait no longer! Generation Nxt, the official distributor of Apple products here in Nepal, has already started the Pre-Order from its different resell partners (Oliz Store, Evo Store, Sonu Mobiles, Future World) for all the five variants of the new Macbook Pro.

First off, the new MacBook Pro 2016 doesn’t offer any significant changes in terms of the design but unfortunately the glowing Apple logo is no more! But it does come with some functional changes compared to the previous generation like it has 130% better graphics, 67% brighter display, faster performance, better audio quality, most functional trackpad and most importantly now an OLED bar and Touch ID. But it lacks the most basic things like a micro USB port and an SD card reader, instead, you get 4 ThunderBolt Ports with high data transfer rate. So you might need to buy few extra micro USB to USB c adapters.

The most hyped thing about the new MacBook is obviously the OLED bar which now replaces the function keys. The functionality of this bar changes based on the application you’re using giving you quick shortcuts and other information. Apple has also integrated the 2nd gen of Butterfly keyboard for better travel while typing.

So there are three variants of the 13-inch MacBook Pro, the base version comes without the OLED touch bar, 2.0Ghz processor, 256GB SSD, the second variant comes with an OLED bar and Touch ID, 2.9GHz processor, and 256GB SSD, and the highest variant comes with the OLED bar and Touch ID, 2.9GHz Processor and 512GB SSD. All the three variants come with Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. Apple has discontinued the MacBook Air lineup cause these 13inch laptops are just that light and portable.

Coming to the bigger 15-inch MacBook pros, there are two versions and both versions come with the OLED bar and Touch ID. The base version comes with 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 256GB PCIe-based SSD and Radeon Pro 450 with 2GB memory, and the maxed out version comes with 2.7GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, 512GB PCIe-based SSD, and Radeon Pro 455 with 2GB memory. And now the can handle two 5K displays simultaneously.
