Come and find out what all the fuss is about.
Over in the Windows camp, laptops with touchscreens are commonplace. In fact, from Windows 8 onward, Microsoft has optimized its operating systems to work best with a touchscreen display. But there are disadvantages to this approach. Take a quick look at the screen of your smartphone. If you’re like most of us, it’s constantly getting smudged, smeared, or scratched. So Apple went another way: MacBook Pro with Touch Bar offers all the cool things you enjoy about touch interactivity with your devices (including the ultra-cool Touch ID), and removes virtually all the disadvantages.
But don’t take our word for it. Come see for yourself on Thursday, June 1st. This is something you need to see in person, and try for yourself, to fully appreciate. So after a breezy, informal presentation, we’ll personally guide you through this latest, greatest MacBook Pro family. Better still: Every attendee will get coupons for discounts on any new Mac, and they’ll be valid through June 20th.
Here’s what we’ll cover:
- Differences between 13- and 15-inch models
- Much larger Force Touch trackpad
- Improved keyboard response and reliability
- The Touch Bar
- Using Touch ID on MacBook Pro with Touch Bar
- Incredible connectivity capabilities
- Apps that use Touch Bar
- Configurations and pricing, including custom-built options
- Question and answer period
- Hands-on sessions with the assistance of our experts
