What's cool about it: Apple has updated the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar for 2018, and among the highlights is that it's now configurable with up to 32 GB of RAM (compared with a maximum of 16 GB of RAM previously). Also helping to boost the MacBook Pro's performance is the addition of eighth-gen Intel Core processors, including an available six-core chip in the 15-inch model (the 13-inch model tops out with quad-core processors). Meanwhile, the inclusion of a third-generation butterfly keyboard on the new MacBook Pro enables quieter typing, and Apple has brought its vibrant "True Tone" display technology from the iPhone to the MacBook Pro screen, as well.
