Apple MacBook Pro Overview

  • 1Description

Experience the innovative interface of the Touch Bar in the late 2016 space gray Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

The Touch Bar places controls right at your fingertips and adapts to different apps to provide useful functions without having to navigate complex menus or memorize keyboard shortcuts. Replacing the function keys in the top row of the keyboard, the Touch Bar features a Retina-quality display and supports multi-touch input.

The power button has been upgraded with a Touch ID sensor, so you can quickly log into your MacBook Pro using your fingerprint. You can also use Touch ID to make purchases over the web, thanks to Apple Pay. Touch ID enables a quick, accurate reading of your fingerprint and uses sophisticated algorithms to recognize and match it with the Secure Enclave in the Apple T1 chip.

The system features a 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, a 1TB PCIe-based SSD, four Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports, a 50% larger Force Touch trackpad, a keyboard with a 2nd-gen butterfly mechanism, stereo speakers with double the dynamic range of its predecessor as well as improved bass, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, and even a 3.5mm headphone jack. macOS Sierra is the installed operating system.

Please note that this Mac may come with an earlier version of macOS. You can upgrade to the latest version through the Mac App Store app.

Touch Bar
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable. The multi-touch, Retina-quality display changes automatically based on what you're doing, from showing traditional system controls, such as volume and brightness, to more directly interacting with or browsing through content. Intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text improve the typing experience, and you'll be able to customize the Touch Bar to fit your needs. The Touch Bar can also adapt to apps, such as Mail, Safari, Messages, and even third-party apps like Adobe Photoshop, so you'll have access to useful functions previously hidden in menus.
Touch ID
A Touch ID sensor has been integrated into the power button, so you can quickly log into your account, even when another user is logged in. You can also use it with Apple Pay to securely purchase things over the web, thanks to macOS Sierra.
Retina Display
The 15.4" Retina Display has a 2880 x 1800 resolution and features brighter LED backlighting than its predecessor as well as an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. It also supports the P3 color gamut, which allows for more vibrant colors. This ensures true-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, which are essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.
Force Touch Trackpad
The Force Touch trackpad on the 15.4" MacBook Pro is 50% larger than the previous generation. The Force Touch trackpad takes all the capabilities of multi-touch and adds force sensors that detect subtle differences in the amount of downward pressure you apply. This lets you have a deeper connection to your content, bringing more functionality right to your fingertip. It also introduces haptic feedback to MacBook Pro — allowing you not just to see what's happening on the screen, but to feel it. With multi-touch, you can use realistic gestures like swiping or pinching to switch between apps, navigate your content, and get the most out of your desktop space.
Thinner & Lighter
The 15.4" MacBook Pro features a redesigned enclosure design and all-metal unibody construction that creates a rigid and dense notebook that is also thin and light. At just 15.5 mm thin, the 15.4" MacBook Pro is 14 percent thinner and has 20 percent less volume than the previous generation. It is also nearly half a pound lighter at just four pounds.
Audio
The speakers have been totally redesigned to provide as much as twice the dynamic range and up to 58 percent more volume, with two-and-a-half-times louder bass for maximum boom. Plus, they're connected directly to system power, enabling up to three times more peak power.
macOS Sierra
The 15.4" MacBook Pro runs macOS Sierra, which features Siri integration, Universal Clipboard, Apple Pay on the web, and memories in Photos.
Thunderbolt 3
Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously or one multi-panel 5K display. The MacBook Pro has four ports, with each pair using a dedicated bus.

    Apple MacBook Pro Reviews

    15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Late 2016, Space Gray) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 111.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it so far. It is small and light. I hope it is powerful, but I haven't had a chance to put it through it's paces yet. It is taking a long time to migrate data from my previous MBP, install new software, and discover that some older programs aren't supported in OS Sierra. The USB C connectors are an extra step. I bought an adapter, but discovered that my external monitor does not work with it. Wacom does not support the driver for my older tablet, so I need to buy a new one. The maker of my RPG Keys couldn't keep up with Apple and Adobe, so I have to leave that awesome device behind. There have been challenges.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect when they first released this I was disappointed with the lack of substantial change. I went and purchased a surface book pro for around the same amount of money. I was totally disappointed with that device. The screen was nice but the pen was hard to use and the balance on the computer was awkward. So I looked back into this. I purchased it 2 weeks ago and it has been a pleasure. The touchbar is useful and is truly more efficient. particularly the screenshot short cut. you can customize it the way you want. the keyboard is better than before. overall it is a huge upgrade! Im very pleased with it. I use it for marketing, photo editing and 3-D rendering software

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Awesome Product...Various Issues The laptop is an awesome upgrade/replacement to the previous macbook pros, but various issues that have been well documented on the roll out including hard drive latency as well as serious battery issues. The new OS is awesome and new keyboard layout/buttons as well as the touch bar which on first review seems out of the way and useless, is becoming more useful with each time the device is used. Hoping Apple creates fixes surrounding the battery issues, but beyond that and figuring out a way to use all accessories via adapters for usb-c, which is proving to be a challenge, the device is awesome and would recommend it even given all the issues.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Price, big performance upgrade. First off, I upgraded to this particularly for the four USB-C ports now that the cables are easy to come by and hubs and adapters are no longer necessary. I can now plug in my SSD, 4TB Rugged drive, Card reader and power all at the same time. Speed and performance is a huge upgrade from my 2012 Retina MacBook Pro (2.7 i7, 16GB, 512GB). I absolutely love the new keyboard, large trackpad and have found the Touch-ID and Touch Bar very useful.? B&H's price was hands down the best available anywhere, even hundreds lower than a refurbished one from Apple. At this price I can still sell it later this year, if Apple comes out with a revolutionary new model in June!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Fast But Initial Access Challenging This is a very nice computer, very fast processor and with the 1 TB SSD drive access is super fast with little waiting. Only caution it has taken me awhile to get up and running because of the USB type C ports. I couldn't do a lot until i got some crossovers. My suggestion would be you order these at the same time as the computer. I have some reviews where people are saying Apple dropped the ball by not having other ports but I disagree. The whole industry seems to be going this way so I think Apple is very forward thinking. This USB type C seems to be the new future standard so why put obsolete ports on a new computer.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wish I could leave a better review. I bought this computer to replace my Late 2011 Macbook Pro. Upon opening the shiny, perfect, Apple packaging I was gutted to discover the battery was dead on arrival and would not charge. So after taking it to Apple Genius Bar to verify, indeed - the battery was dead and failed the diagnostic. So I exchange it with B&H which was painless but cost me a week of time to wait for the new machine. Now I open the new machine and.. the left shift key consistently does not activate when pressed.? After reading the other reviews on this machine it seems either B&H got a batch of lemons or the entire 2016 production run is full of lemons. I'm contemplating returning it. I don't know if I want to risk another exchange and another lemon. I also don't know if I want to stay with Apple after this experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome machine! I'm a professional photographer I recently purchased a new camera body and as of late I have been asked to shoot and edit video clips for clients as well. It only does this machine handle my new camera body's large files it also edits 4K video easily and allows you to use adobe after affects seamlessly. It's not a desk too but it's hands down the best option for anyone who does commercial video or photography this is the best road companion you could ask for.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too many downgrades This is my 4th MacBook Pro. In the past, every time I upgrade I find that the entire user experience is upgraded–better insides, better screen, better design, etc. This time, all of the usual improvements are spoiled by a few unacceptable downgrades. The shallow keyboard is unacceptable, and after a few weeks I'm still typing slowly with errors. The touch bar is a complete gimmick and annoying–after a while it turns itself off, so just to hit escape you need to first wake it up, then press it. I'm not a user experience design expert, but I believe ADDING steps is the opposite of improving UXD. And don't get me started on the thunderbolt 3 ports. I have to bring ugly, loose dongles around with me everywhere now. And I miss the magsafe charger which indicated when the battery was charging/full. That's gone now too. I upgraded because I needed a bigger SSD and improved specs for video/photo editing. And I'll admit that it's an incredibly fast and powerful machine. But due to all of these downgrades, I'm seriously considering selling this and going back to a maxed-out 2015 model– the last "good" MacBook Pro.

    question

    can you confirm specs on this build please?
    Asked by: Christian M.
    The previous answers to this question are accurate. I bought this machine as a replacement for a CTO 2014 MacBook Pro that was maxed out for late 2014. I purchased this machine as a replacement intending to pass the 2014 to one of my children and to save $1000 plus local sales tax under the cost of a similarly configured mid 2017 machine. The 2014 MBP was and is faster executing benchmarks and running common commercial applications than this late 2016 which is actually a CTO Apple spec. The discount received in my opinion was worth the slight concession I had to make regarding the raw processing speed of the device compared my earlier 15 macbook. The mid 2017 15 MacBook Pro has a newer processor version (Kaby Lake v Sky Lake) and is available in versions that run at a slightly higher frequency (but lower voltage - 3.1 v 2.9 Mhz) Also the mid 2017 has a slightly upgrade but almost identical 560 GPU v the 460 in the late 2016. The latter is purported to benchmark slightly higher than the former. The (undercounted) mid 2017 at 3.1 Mhz (Kaby Lake) processor frequency and 560 version GPU benchmarks and runs applications a tiny bit faster than the mid 2014 model I previously owned - but at $1000 great purchase cost at this particular time hence why I made this purchase from B&H in the first place. All things equal I would buy it again. Hope that helps.

    question

    Is Applecare available for this computer?
    Asked by: Ted D.
    Yes. When you add the computer to your shopping cart, you should see an option to add AppleCare. Please note that you can only purchase AppleCare with B&H at the time of purchasing the Mac. Otherwise, you'd have to purchase from Apple directly after they run a diagnostic on your Mac.
