As pre-orders begin preparing for shipment, Apple Authorized Retailers around the world are beginning to get stock of the new 14-inch MacBook Pro. As such, the first videos and images of the new machines in the wild have started to emerge, including a comparison to the previous-generation 13-inch MacBook Pro as well as an unboxing video.
These images and videos offer our first look at the MacBook Pro’s redesigned chassis, including the all black keyboard, the thicker design, and the notch cutout in the display. The video was posted on Reddit this afternoon, as was a comparison image to the 13-inch MacBook Pro.

In actuality, the new 14-inch MacBook Pro is the same in terms of thickness, but the flatter edges make it seem thicker. The flat edged design, however, lets Apple fit more on the inside.
