Although we're dying to send emojis with a tap of the Touch Bar, this 'Book is missing the headlining feature of the 2016 MacBook Pro series—it sports physical function keys instead.

However, we do spy an XL (extra-long) escape key that sets this row of function keys apart.

Taking a pause before diving deep into the belly of the beast, we pull out our old rose-gold friend, the Retina MacBook 2016 for comparison.

The Pro looks like a giant beside its pink sibling, sporting a significantly larger trackpad.

Also, the speaker grilles have migrated down from the upper edge of the keyboard to flank it on the left and right sides, now possible due to the Pro's extra half-inch of depth.

Here's one last X-ray preview of the internals. Time to get our hands dirty!
