4 Neat Features You Will Absolutely Love On The New MacBook Pro

If you want to finally switch from Windows PC or Chrome Book to a Mac, there are probably more than a few reasons you are taking this step. It could be the amazing performance, great audio, portability, the innovative touch bar or the butterfly mechanism. Regardless of what your motivation is, these 4 features will help you make the decision to get a MacBook Pro—one of the best decision you will have made in 2017.

1. Highly Versatile OLED Touch Bar

With touch screen technology making its mark on laptops over the last few years, Apple has (predictably) not gone the way of the masses. The reason being is that for laptops, the keyboard will (in the foreseeable future) remain the default mode. Many people with touch screen windows laptops admit that though they appreciate the option to work directly on the screen, they hardly ever use it.

With the touch bar sitting right above the keyboard on the new MacBook Pro, it feels like a natural progression. You will be amazed by how easy it makes your life; soon you will grow reliant on it that you will wonder how you ever lived without it.

The touch bar comes packed with lots of functions and you will have a blast discovering all the neat tricks it can accomplish. To get you started, check out a list of some of those tricks at Nogentech.

2. A Larger More Responsive Trackpad

    In keeping with Apple’s cutting edge innovation, the new MacBook Pro comes with what is perhaps the largest trackpad seen on a laptop. What is most stunning about this beautiful expanse is actually what lies underneath. Older models came with a mechanical trackpad that pivoted on a lever-like hinge, which had two main problems: the difficulty of a click registering when the pad was pressed near the extremities and the gradual wear and tear of the mechanical parts. So, Apple replaced the old trackpad with a trackpad that is touch sensitive and thus capable not only of sensing in 2 dimensions like a traditional trackpad, but also being able to sense a third dimension via measuring pressure, thereby enabling the company to implement a third click activated by pressing down harder on the trackpad to emulate the middle mouse button. To top it off, the integrated taptic engine is on hand to give you the traditional feel of the mechanical trackpad’s haptic feedback.[1]

    3. A Simply Superb Keyboard

      Although the keyboard on your new MacBook Pro may look similar to any other on an Apple computer, within a few minutes of typing on it you are bound to realize that this too has been completely redesigned from the ground up. This overhaul was necessary if Apple was still going to fit a full-size keyboard into the amazingly thin MacBook Pro. They did not disappoint. The keys are designed to have a larger surface area, with a deeper curvature and thinner construction and they bounce back with a crisp consistency that allows for more accurate typing. They are also backlit, ensuring that your productivity is not hindered by such nuisances as the lack of proper lighting.

      Added to that is the inclusion of the innovative butterfly mechanism, a departure from the traditional scissor assembly, that allows for less key wobbling and thus more responsiveness. Remember, this keyboard will support all the amazing shortcuts you love about MacBook keyboards.

      4. Easy Security-Touch ID

        This is one of the most under-appreciated features of the touch bar. Touch identification (ID) saves you lots of time and energy when you want to secure your machine or make purchases online. It is located on the right side of the touch bar and will act as a power button as well. Apart from allowing you to make secure online payments using your unique fingerprint, touch ID also allows you to lock and unlock your machine, ensuring optimum privacy.

        Since the new MacBook Pro also comes with in-built iSight cameras, you can also hack your machine with a neat trick to alert you when your friends or siblings have been trying to break into your machine by instructing the machine to take pictures during failed login attempts.

        Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

        Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

        Does technology have all the answers?

        This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

        Creating technological solutions transparently

        This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

        Technology as the connecting tool

        Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

        “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
