Your Faces album won't sync across your computers — but there's another way to see that collection across your devices.

I like being able to see images of certain family members at a glance — it's helpful for building birthday cards, for instance, or finding great blackmail photos — and it's why I've always loved the Faces feature.

Here are the new 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpad and $1999 Retina 5K iMac

Apple has released an updated 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and $1999 entry level iMac with Retina 5K display.

The 15-inch MacBook update not only brings Apple's new Force Touch trackpad to the bigger, more powerful model, but faster flash storage, longer battery life, and a faster AMD Radeon R9 M370X discreet graphics option. The new, lower price point on the Retina 5K iMac makes Apple's latest all-in-one desktop more accessible, and a price-drop on the higher-end model to $2,299 makes the entire lineup more affordable as well.
