Additionally, the new 16-inch MacBook Pro arrives with six speakers, slimmer bezels, improved thermal management, and upgraded specifications.

The new laptop, which will be made available in India soon, will start at Rs 199,900. The 16-inch MacBook Pro is Apple’s latest attempt to launch a powerful machine catering to creative professionals like filmmakers, artists, video editors, and musicians.
