The 13.3-inch MacBook Pro (Late 2016) was introduced by Apple on Oct. 27, 2016 during a media event at the company's Cupertino campus. Billed for its "Groundbreaking" design, this new family of MacBooks made their debut alongside the 13.3-inch MacBook Pros with Touch Bar (Late 2016) as a more cost affordable option. Though these models do not include a Touch Bar or Touch ID like their more expensive counterparts, they share the same enclosure and many underlying technologies. At just 14.9 mm thin, the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is 17% thinner and 23% less volume than the its predecessor, the 13.3" MacBook Pro (Early 2015). It's also nearly half a pound lighter at just three pounds. Available in both Silver and Space Gray, these MacBook Pros also feature a new keyboard with a second-generation butterfly mechanism; more vidid Retina displays that are 67 percent brighter than the previous generation; 46% larger Force Touch trackpads; Sixth-generation dual-core Core i5 with eDRAM Intel processors; 8GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, and louder, more true-to-life sound through speakers with double the dynamic range and improved bass. Each 13.3" MacBook Pro also comes pre-loaded with Apple's latest macOS Sierra operating system.
