Talking about the specifications, this is the MacBook Pro that was launched in early 2020. Hence, it has the same design Apple introduced in 2017. However, instead of the butterfly switches, you get the good old Magic keyboard with scissor switches.
This laptop offers a 13.3-inch IPS display with 2560 x 1600 native resolution. You get Thunderbolt 3 ports. Plus, this variant is the Touch Bar equipped model that replaces the Function keys with a long horizontal touch screen. Some find it useful, while others have been asking Apple to remove it.

Meanwhile, the M1-equipped MacBook Pro is selling for INR 1,22,900. While Apple also refreshed the lineup with 10th Gen Intel chips, this one offers the 8th gen processor as the 10th gen Intel Core processor-equipped models didn’t last long on the shelves.
