MacBook Pro 15-Inch  (Source: Apple)
Apple’s updated 15-inch MacBook Pro now features faster processing and better graphics.

The updated MacBook Pro is still razor thin and light-weight as before, but it is also faster and more powerful than before.  It features the same aluminum outer shell, same touchbar control strip, and only four USB-C ports. There is a huge Force Touch trackpad that is certainly one of the biggest available. I think it could cover half the keyboard in length and height.

The increase in processing power comes from the decision to drop the 6th-generation Intel Core processors and switch to current 7th-generation Intel Core i-series processors. In addition to the increase in processing power, the new MacBook Pro also features enhanced graphics thanks to upgrading from the Intel HD 530 to the HD 630 integrated graphics chip.  You also get the Radeon Pro 555 and 560 discrete graphics selection which is upgraded from the AMD Radeon Pro 450 and 455.
 
The 15-inch MacBook Pro offers two configurations. There is the  Core i7/16GB RAM/256GB SSD/AMD Radeon Pro 555 model starts at $2,399. The higher-end version offers a Core i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, a 512GB SSD and the AMD Radeon Pro 560 for graphics at $2,799.
