Everything Apple Announced at Today's 'Hello Again' Mac Event in Under Four Minutes

Apple hosted its "Hello Again" Mac event this morning, where it debuted a newly redesigned MacBook Pro with an integrated "Touch Bar" panel that supports multi-touch and a range of gestures to unlock new capabilities in apps.

Much of the event was actually spent covering existing features, demoing the Touch Bar, and highlighting Apple TV capabilities, allowing us to condense the full 82 minute presentation into four minutes. If you missed Apple's keynote, our recap is a great way to get caught up without having to invest an hour and a half.


Apple's new MacBook Pro models feature a thinner, lighter body, better battery life, upgraded processors, improved displays, and the aforementioned Touch Bar, but all that innovation comes at a price, which has many customers disappointed. Apple is charging $1,799 in the United States for the entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro model with a Touch Bar, and the 15-inch MacBook Pro models start at $2,399.

While the MacBook Pro was the main highlight of the event, Apple also introduced a new Accessibility site, 4K and 5K monitors from LG, a new Apple TV app that serves as a TV guide to help users find what to watch. For a more in-depth look at everything that's new today, make sure to check our full event recap post.

I'll sum it up in seven words: price gouging, regressive, form over function, dongles

Summary:

- Prices are way up
- Needs dongles/adapters for iPhones (even the 7) and camera cards
- Big trackpad
- TouchID
- Cumbersome little touchbar so you have to enter menus to adjust volume, brightness, etc

The 15" with a mere 256gb SSD and they cost £2,349?

This is an absolute disgrace!

I'm thinking they should have called it the "Slowly Saying Good Bye" Mac event instead of the "Hello Again" Mac event.
