Interested users can order the MacBook Pro 16″ now at Apple.com, where it is now available for purchase and customization, though the ship times may vary depending on if or what you select with the Mac laptop. Interested buyers can also find the new MacBook Pro on amazon.com for sale as well, in various configurations and with varying ship times.
Many Mac laptop users will be particularly excited about the new keyboard, which aims to resolve issues experienced by some MacBook Pro users where the keyboard would either jam, result in double typing keys, or otherwise malfunction. Presumably this new keyboard will roll out on other Apple laptops sometime next year or in their next redesign cycles.
