Review: The 2018 MacBook Pro with i9 processor is the fastest laptop Apple has ever made، but it could be better

The latest MacBook Pro retains the fourth major body redesign that the product line has seen. The new design leans heavily on techniques used for the Retina MacBook، MacBook Air، and iPad، with the design still 0.61 inches (15.5 mm) thick —making it thinner than the MacBook Air، according to "Apple Insider".

Apple's high end 15-inch MacBook Pro is still available in standard Silver and a darker Space Gray finish، and is sold alongside a smaller 13-inch version — but that model is a different review.

As before، the Touch ID button is still a physical one، and it serves as an emergency way to force a shut down in the case of a nasty Kernel Panic، as well as a power-on switch. Other power functions are handled automatically by default، with the user opening and closing the lid to respectively wake or sleep the machine.

Touch ID isn't universal، though. If you log out of your account، you'll need to supply a password to log back in; Touch ID only works if your account is active. You also need to log in manually after a power cycle، just as with iOS devices.

The Touch Bar is still intended to appear and function as a dynamic strip of virtual keyboard keys، unconfined by the physical structure of mechanical keys. When you hold down the FN key، the Touch Bar reverts to a standard strip of 12 function keys and the ESC key (below).

If you boot into Windows، the Touch Bar still reverts to displaying virtual function keys. But — you're probably not reading to hear about the Touch Bar again.
