Overall, they sport a Retina display (500 nits), stereo speakers with wide-stereo sound, Touch ID, Touch Bar, Force Touch trackpad, SSD, Apple T2 Security Chip, Thunderbolt 3 ports, and a macOS Mojave operating system out-of-the-box.


Here are the prices of the updated MacBook Pro variants:

  • 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar – USD 1,799 (~PHP 94,502)
  • 15-inch MacBook Pro – USD 2,399 (~PHP 126,020)

Both devices are now available for purchase through Apple’s website, Apple Store app, and in select Apple Stores in the US. Authorized Resellers will also get the laptops later this week.

    Local pricing is also available in the online PH Apple Store… the 15-inch model starts at 150k. Pretty sad really since the base 15-inch was almost sub-100k at one point.
