    Did they have to alter the Force Touch for the new MacBook in order to make it more thin? Is the Pro version of Force Touch superior? Does it feel better or have more kickback?

    According to the iFixit teardown, yes, the Force Touch trackpad is a slightly different, thinner design on the MacBook than on the MacBook Pro.

    Whether it feels different in a way that's noticeable, and whether that's a bad thing, is probably a matter of opinion. Best thing to do would be to try them both out at an Apple Store or a Best Buy, and see which one you prefer.

    One guy in a short YouTube review (I forget which one) said it actually felt better/more substantial on the rMB than the rMBP.
