macbook proAccording to a rumor from yesterday, it was suggested that Apple could launch a new 15-inch MacBook Pro this coming Wednesday. Well, it looks like the rumors were almost right because instead of a Wednesday launch, Apple has actually launched it a day earlier than expected which is today.

For those who are looking to purchase a new MacBook Pro it seems like the launch is pretty good timing and given the refreshed specs, perhaps this might be an option worth considering. Probably the most notable change Apple has made to the laptop is the inclusion of the Force Touch trackpad which was originally introduced in the 12-inch Retina MacBook.

For those unfamiliar, the idea behind the Force Touch trackpad is to allow users to click anywhere with a uniform feel, and will also sport a Taptic Engine that provides tactile feedback while being used. Users are also able to specify the amount of pressure that is required in order for it to register a click.

Apart from the introduction of the Force Touch trackpad, Apple has also updated the laptop with new Intel Broadwell processors which will start at a 2.2GHz Intel Core i7 model at $1,999, but users can choose to customize its specs with better processor speeds and graphics at an additional cost.
