For the MacBook Air, there’s not much you can look forward to with this refresh over the last generation. Processor speeds and integrated graphics have been slightly improved, but everything else remains identical to previous versions.  You’re basically getting a slightly improved machine at the same price as the previous generation.

With the MacBook Pro, Apple implemented similar internal hardware upgrades for the processor and graphics card, but there’s also a brand new trackpad which will also come along with the 2015 12-inch MacBook and added faster flash storage. The Force Touch trackpad brings along a lot of new features within OS X and will eventually be customizable via developer APIs.

If you’d like to find out more about the Force Touch trackpad or Force Click functionality it brings to the new 13-inch MacBook Pro w/ Retina Display or the 12-inch MacBook, check out our MacBook Pro unboxing, overview, and benchmark video embedded below and our “top 15 Force Click features” video.
