Ahead of Apple's official unveiling, scheduled for October 27, we have our first look at the new MacBook Pro. Among the major revisions is the loss of the function row. In its place is a second mini display above the keyboard, rumored to be called the Magic Toolbar, and its features will change depending on what you're doing. For example, in the image above, there's a prompt for Apple Pay and a "Cancel" button on the left. Additional changes include a Touch ID sensor, slimmer bezel around the display and keyboard, and speakers on either side of the keyboard. Stay tuned for more details, soon to be announced at Apple's keynote event on October 27 at 10 am PDT.
