New MacBook Pros: smaller footprint; thinner but not wedge-shaped; bigger trackpad; more — 9to5Mac

A new Bloomberg report says that the new range of MacBook Pro models will have a smaller footprint than existing models, and will be thinner but not adopt the wedge shape of the MacBook Air and 12-inch MacBook. The trackpad is also slightly wider than current models.

Expect a solid aluminium design, with the 13-inch MacBook Pro 2017 weighing 3.02 pounds (1.37kg), and with a thinness of 0.59-inches (1.49cm) when closed.

It’s a beautifully thin and light design, and we’re glad that wasn’t compromised due to the more powerful components in this year’s model.
