Video: Could the MacBook Pro 2016 be the laptop of the year?

Welcome to The Refresh, a weekly series from TrustedReviews where we pick out the week’s highlights from the tech world.

This week’s top story:

Macbook Pro 2016: Another week, another leak for Apple. The new Macbook Pros are rumoured to feature a thinner design, a touch-screen strip above the keyboard for function keys, faster Skylake processors and the latest USB Type C ports. However, we may not see them at Apple’s 7th September event.


Also in the news this week:

No Man’s Sky Diaries – Brett Phipps (@InverteBrett) has been exploring the galaxy in No Man’s Sky and has been keeping us updated with his antics via daily diaries.

Robot Kitchen – Moley have created a fully integrated robot chef that can download, cook and serve up all of you’re favourite dishes.

Xbox One S Review – Our Home tech editor Ced Yuen (@CedYuen) reviewed the new Xbox One S this week and while it may not be worth the upgrade over the Xbox One, there’s still a lot to like.

Fitness Trackers Guide – It’s the summer and the weather is slightly less horrible than usual here in the UK. If you fancy getting out and getting fit, our Wearables and Fitness editor Richard Easton (@ChocoJetPack) will run you through everything you need to know about fitness trackers.

Head-to-Head – Evan Kypreos (@EvanKypreos) and James Laird (@Scavgourmet) tackle the big question this week of whether Pokemon Go is really just a massive waste of time.
