Apple has unveiled its new 15-inch MacBook Pro with refreshed internals and Force Touch technology, as well as a new 5K-capable iMac. The addition of Force Touch technology on the new 15-inch MacBook Pro allows it to join the league of the 13-inch MacBook Pro that Apple unveiled not too long ago with its impressive new trackpad.

The refreshed 15-inch MacBook Pro includes an interesting mobile GPU that people have nearly skimmed over, with Apple using an AMD Radeon R9 M370X - from AMD's upcoming Radeon 300 series of GPUs. Apple's refreshed MBP features a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor at 2.5GHz, 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 512GB PCIe-based SSD, Intel Iris Pro graphics along with the Radeon R9 M370X, and the Force Touch trackpad. All of this will set you back $2499.

The new iMac features a 5K Retina panel, and starting at $1999 you'll get a quad-core Intel Core i5 processor at 3.3GHz. The refreshed iMac features a beautiful 5120x2880 resolution, which packs 67% more pixels than 4K at 3840x2160. Inside, there'll be 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, joined by four USB 3.0 ports and two Thunderbolt 2 ports that provide up to an insane 20Gbps, each.

Apple is making the new 15-inch MacBook Pro and 5K-capable iMac available on the Apple Online Store and Apple's retail stores throughout select countries.
