Apple’s New Laptop – level 1

Apple’s New Laptop – level 1

31-10-2016 15:00

This news is about technology. Apple unveils a new laptop. It is the new MacBook Pro.

It is thinner, lighter, and it has a fingerprint reader.

There is also the new Touch Bar. It is a long touch display. It replaces the function keys. When you change from app to app, the Touch Bar changes, too. It gives you the best keys for the application that you are using at the moment.

The new laptop has no USB port or SD card slot. There still is a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The new laptop is $200 more expensive. It starts at $1,499 in the USA.

Difficult words: unveil (show people for the first time), fingerprint reader (this can read your finger, and it is good for the protection of the laptop), replace (take place of), app (a computer programme).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
