Apple's high-end Mac laptops are getting a touch control strip above the keyboard, part of a long-awaited update aimed at reviving interest in a product often overshadowed by newer gadgets like the iPad and iPhone.Apple itself has promoted its latest iPad tablet, the iPad Pro, as capable of replacing the laptop for many users. And in contrast with the Mac's earlier years – when Apple marketed its computers to people who saw themselves as creative professionals or just independent thinkers – Apple also has begun promoting the Mac as a computer for businesses, which once mostly used competitors' PCs running Microsoft's Windows software.Microsoft, meanwhile, has begun selling its own line of high-end Surface laptops and this week introduced its first Surface desktop PC. Microsoft has boasted about modern controls with touch screens; the Touch Bar is Apple's answer to that, placed near the keyboard where people's fingers are already.The Mac has been important for Apple since co-founder Steve Jobs introduced the first model in 1984 .Apple's app, though, is short of a full-fledged streaming-TV service, which reports say Apple has been pursuing.Apple said Apple TV already has 8,000 apps, including more than 2,000 games.
