Gotta have that Touch Bar.

So, Apple's "Hello Again" event is over, and it turned out to be a little lighter than first thought. The company announced a new all-in-one guide for Apple TV, as well as Minecraft hitting the little box before the end of the year. The new MacBook Pro lineup was the main reason people showed up, though. They are thinner and lighter, with brighter screens and improved performance, though they seem to have misplaced standard USB ports. The new OLED Touch Bar with Touch ID that replaces the function keys is the big addition to the top-end 13-inch and 15-inch models, offering contextual controls based on what program you're using at the time (where supported, of course). We know what you're here for, so we'll cut to the chase. What's the damage?

2.0GHz Intel Core i5 2.9GHz Intel Core i5 w/ Touch Bar 256GB 2.9GHz Intel Core i5 w/ Touch Bar 512GB
13-inch MacBook Pro £1,449 £1,749 £1,949
2.6GHz Intel Core i7 w/ Touch Bar 256GB 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 w/ Touch Bar 512GB
15-inch MacBook Pro £2,349 £2,699

There you have it. All models are available to preorder today from Apple, with the standard 13-inch MBP shipping almost immediately. Any Touch Bar model, however, will take roughly 3-4 weeks to reach your doorstep.

Also, fun fact: The cheapest MacBook Pro is now £200 more expensive than the model it replaces, or £300 more if you're springing for a 15-inch display. That's just the start, though. Mac Mini prices have risen from £399 to £479, the Mac Pro has jumped from £2,499 to £2,999 and the 4K and 5K iMacs have both been given £300 markups. Thanks, Brexit?
