As part of today’s presentation, Apple spoke about its new laptops. The updated MacBook Pro has changed in appearance, received magnetic charging and a new keyboard without the Touch Bar.

However, this is not all innovations. For example, the screens have changed. Apple has reduced the bezels around the displays to 3.5mm. True, I had to pay for this with the appearance of a branded “bangs” in the MacBook Pro. It houses a new FaceTime camera that can shoot at 1080p resolution.
