Apple’s New Laptop – level 3

31-10-2016 15:00

Claiming that Apple has been defining and redefining what a notebook is and what a notebook can do for the past 25 years, Apple recently unveiled its newest MacBook Pro. Being called absolutely incredible, the laptop does have some very distinctive features.

The laptop is thinner, lighter and comes with a fingerprint reader. There is also the new touch panel, which Apple calls the Touch Bar, and it replaced the function keys with dynamic shortcuts – the shortcuts can change depending on the application that you use. Standard USB ports and SD card slots are gone, but there still is a headphone socket.

The new versions cost more than $200 more than the 2015 models with prices starting at $1,499 in the US.

Difficult words: claim (say), unveil (show people for the first time), distinctive (very characteristic of a thing), feature (something special about a thing).
