MacBook Pro review

 

Apple's leading laptop finally catches up – and then some

Super-thin and light ; Touch Bar smartly designed ; Loads of USB-C ports ; Huge trackpad

Touch Bar needs more app support ; Direct light washes out Touch Bar display

To say the new MacBook Pro is a massive improvement over the previous model would be an understatement. It's more portable and more powerful, not to mention more enjoyable to use. But it's tough to justify the premium for that Touch Bar, no matter how...

Apple MacBook Pro (13-inch, Late 2016) review

 

Thrifty shades of space gray

Alluring design ; Vibrant display ; Fast SSD ; Huge trackpad

Two USB-C ports forces compromise ; Keyboard too shallow for some

It's not without flaws, but the new 13-inch MacBook Pro is a solid laptop that combines a highly attractive design with snappy storage, a gorgeous display and a trackpad the size of a saucer. But, if you didn't like the 12-inch MacBook's shallow...

Apple MacBook Pro (2016) with Touch Bar: Thinner, brighter, faster, and very touchy feely - Pocket-lint

 

Apple has revamped its MacBook Pro range delivering a device that is thinner, lighter and more powerful, and we were at the Apple Event at the company's

With or without the Touch Bar the new 2016 Apple MacBook Pro looks to be an amazing laptop that will get MacBook users excited. It's smaller, lighter, but more powerful, bringing the MacBook Pro line back to be ahead of the MacBook launched last year.

2016 Apple MacBook Pro 13in with Touch Bar review

 

Does the Touch Bar elevate the excellent 13in MacBook Pro to portable computer perfection?

A beautifully made, fantastically compact device ; The screen is fabulous ; There’s nothing nicer to type on ; Touch Bar looks awesome and has loads of potential ; More ports can only be a good thing

Lack of Touch Bar-supported apps limits its usefulness right now ; Not a huge real-world jump in power from entry-level model ; You’ll need adapters - at least in the early days

The new MacBook Pros are generally awesome, but this isn’t the pick of the range - at least not yet

The MacBook Pro line has long represented the pinnacle of stylish and sturdy laptop design, and the overhauled 2016 edition is a huge refinement on Apple's already great formula.

Apple MacBook Pro 13in 2016 review

 

It may not have the Touch Bar, but this entry-level Pro is still a belter

Super compact ; Truly beautiful, sharp, punchy screen ; Larger trackpad for your gesturing pleasure ; Fabulous keyboard

Two ports won’t be enough for everyone ; Trackpad could do with more ‘click’ ; Significantly higher price for entry-level ; Some might want to wait for that sexy Touch Bar

Beautiful, compact and a pleasure to work on - the Touch Bar version is the attention grabber, but this entry-level model hits a very sweet spot indeed
