The Touch Bar makes a return in the somewhat bulkier 15-inch and this time around it’s slightly larger. While this doesn’t fundamentally change how the Touch Bar works, it does make it slightly easier to navigate with precision.

The speaker grills, which iFixit says are completely cosmetic in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, are enormous in the 15-inch. While I’ve only tested the 15-inch MacBook Pro for a brief period of time, the sound actually seems to be higher quality than the 13-inch.

The 15-inch Pro’s form factor is just as sleek as the 13-inch, with the top and bottom portions of the laptop connecting almost perfectly (the space between the top and the bottom is almost non-existant).
