Apple has updated the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display with the new Force Touch trackpad, fifth-generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Graphics 6100.
The new trackpad features built-in force sensors that allow users to click anywhere and haptic feedback that provides a responsive and uniform feel. Users can even customize the feel of the trackpad by changing the amount of pressure needed to register each click. The Force Touch trackpad also enables a new gesture called Force Click, a click followed by a deeper press, for tasks like pulling up the definition of a word, quickly seeing a map or glancing at a preview of a file, according to the vendor.
The updated 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display also features fifth-generation Intel Core processors up to 3.1GHz, with Turbo Boost Speeds up to 3.4GHz, faster integrated Intel Iris Graphics 6100, and flash storage that is up to two times faster, with throughput up to 1.6GBps. In addition, the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display now delivers up to 10 hours of battery life and up to 12 hours of iTunes movie playback.
