    Apple released its 2016 MacBook Pro lineup, but KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that he expects the Cupertino giant to drop the price of the new lineup, and even add 32GB RAM support next year.
    Kuo noted that Apple usually launches its products at a higher price, and only does price cuts on the units in the new year that follows.

You can even pay with the TouchBar since it ushers in the TouchID into the world of Macs.
