Five handy MacBook Pro (Late 2016) accessories that I'm using right now

One thing MacBook Pro users need to understand is that the new Apple MacBook's touch bar was meant to make games like Doom run, which developers often do when testing out new features. These are all online offers, but if you want to trade in your old MacBook Pro, they're offering a minimum $250 off on a new device, or a $150 gift card, for walk-in customers.

With the release of Apple's latest MacBook Pro 2016 with Touch Bar, a lot are asking how to maximize its full potential.

"Doom runs on pretty much everything... but can it run on the new MacBook Pro Touch Bar?".

From an empty desktop, you can insert emoji, launch Siri, change the display or keyboard brightness, change the volume and access media controls.

In the end, real story with the MacBook Pro is the Touch Bar. This ranks up there as one of the best deals and should please power users. When selected, it will be the function keys that will be displayed on the Touch Bar by default whenever the selected app is opened. B&H is providing a $300 discount on the 2015, 15-inch, 512GB MacBook Pro, for the price of $2,199. If or when that price drop comes - at which point there will also be better developer support - we'll be happy to revisit the significance of the Touch Bar. Charging is also done through the USB-C port, as there's no more MagSafe connector.

The speakers deliver enough bass and the sound is powerful and clear. At only $6.99, the IXCC adapter is cheaper than some of the alternative options that you'll encounter. Still, the 2016 form is a superior decision for a great many people, unless you're on a financial plan and can't get by with an Air. Add the Touch Bar, a contextual strip of screen sitting above the keyboard, and it also adds a bit more fun. Somehow they thought that it will be useless and a waste of money since it's way more expensive than the usual MacBook Pro.

The 15-inch version starts AUD $3,599 with a 2.6 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.5 GHz, 16GB of memory and 256GB of flash storage. It's instantaneous. The fingerprint reader is one of the smallest improvements to Apple's all new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, but it might just be my favourite.

At that price, it's definitely for professionals.
