Apple MacBook Pro overview

  • 1Description

Designed to replace the MacBook Air, the space gray 13.3" MacBook Pro from Apple is faster and more powerful than the previous generation, yet thinner at 0.59" and lighter at just 3 lb. This system is powered by a 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 Dual-Core processor that features a burst speed of up to 3.4 GHz, while 16GB of 1866 MHz LPDDR3 RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs.

The 13.3" IPS Retina display features a WQXGA 2560 x 1600 screen resolution with a 227 ppi pixel density. It has LED backlighting with a maximum brightness of 500 nits, and it includes support for the P3 wide color gamut. Integrated Intel Iris Graphics 540 delivers a sharp, clear picture, and you'll also be able to output video to an external display using the system's Thunderbolt 3 ports, which feature native DisplayPort output. One Thunderbolt 3 port can support one multi-panel 5K display at resolutions up to 5120 x 2880 at 60 Hz, or dual 4K displays at resolutions up to 4096 x 2304 at 60 Hz, each of which are able to support over a billion colors.

For long-term storage of your files, this MacBook Pro is equipped with a 512GB PCIe SSD, with sequential read speeds up to 3.1 GB/s and sequential write speeds up to 2.1 GB/s. If you want to add external peripherals, dual Thunderbolt 3 ports support bi-directional transfer speeds of up to 40 Gb/s, while also supporting 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and device charging. 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi is built-in for wireless networking, and Bluetooth 4.2 technology will also allow you to connect additional compatible peripherals. Other integrated features include a 720p webcam, dual microphones, stereo speakers, a 78-key backlit keyboard with 12 function keys and four arrow keys, an ambient light sensor, and a larger Force Touch trackpad.

The 13.3" MacBook Pro includes a 61W USB Type-C power adapter that operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz, a 6.6' USB Type-C charging cable, and a built-in 54.5Wh lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts for up to 10 hours before recharging is required — or up to 30 days of standby time. The installed operating system is macOS Sierra.

General Features

Graphics Performance
With 64MB of embedded DRAM, the 13.3" MacBook Pro provides up to 103% faster integrated graphics than the previous generation.
Flash Storage
The embedded 512GB PCIe SSD provides sequential read speeds up to 3.1 GB/s and sequential write speeds up to 2.1 GB/s.
Up to 10 hours of battery life is available for tasks such as iTunes movie playback and web surfing.
The thinner the notebook, the less space for cooling. The MacBook Pro incorporates innovations throughout the system that eliminate heat more efficiently than the previous generation — increasing airflow during intensive tasks like editing video, playing graphics-heavy games, and transferring huge files.
Retina Display
The display in the MacBook Pro features brighter LED backlighting (500 nits) and an increased contrast ratio (67%), 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 wide color gamut, which features 25% more colors than the commonly used sRGB gamut, for even more vibrant greens and reds. This helps ensure truer-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.
The speakers have been totally redesigned to provide as much as twice the dynamic range of its predecessor, allowing for up to 58% more volume and 2.5x louder bass for increased boom. And they're connected directly to system power, enabling up to 3x more peak power, making the MacBook Pro a solid choice for mixing a track on the fly, editing video on location, or enjoying a movie on the go.
Keyboard and Trackpad
Interacting with the MacBook Pro is a better experience all around. The keyboard has been redesigned to include a second-generation butterfly mechanism, which has been refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. The Force Touch trackpad is also much larger, giving your fingers more room to gesture and click.
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 two ports, sharing one dedicated bus.
macOS Sierra
macOS is the operating system that powers every Mac. It's engineered to take full advantage of the hardware and designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at. macOS includes an amazing collection of apps, and also features iCloud and other innovative ways for your Mac, iOS devices, and Apple Watch to work together.

    Apple MacBook Pro reviews

    13.3" MacBook Pro (Space Gray, Late 2016) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth it? have wanted to buy a MacBook since July, but held out on account of the probability of the new version. I got the version without the LED bar as I didn't feel I needed it for what I would use it for- and I was right. You won't miss having th LED bar. This new MacBook is lighter than the previous versions. I love the keyboard and it handles large data processing and presentations as well as previous ones. . I tried the Lenovo yoga AND an specter prior to this, and neither were as well made nor operated with the same smoothness as you can get in an Apple. Overall a good buy

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VERY pleased with this upgrade from an older MB Pro! Because of other negative reviews I read about this 2016 model, and USB-C-only ports, I almost opted for a 2015 model. I am so glad that I didn't! Overall, I am very pleased and would recommend this MacBook (i7 / 16GB RAM / 512GB SSD). It has the typical Apple quality, beautiful Retina display, snappy performance and I really like the new keyboard (no Touch Bar). The lack of legacy ports hasn't proven to be an issue, but I think Apple should ship it with at least a USB-C to classic USB-A dongle. Also would like to see a MagSafe charging cable - that saved my old laptop on numerous occasions! As mentioned, I like the short travel of the butterfly keyboard, and it is actually very easy to type on and get used to. The size and weight makes this feel more like a MB Air, but with better performance. Still, for the price point and future-proofing, it seems like it should include the latest generation i7 CPU.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great machine with one terrible flaw This is a great machine but it has one terrible flaw. Apple, Jon Ivy or Tim Cook or whatever other rocket scientist they employ, did away with the MagSafe connector. This simple connector was and still is one of the most customer beneficial pieces of industrial design of the past 100 years. Already in my first week of ownership, the machine has had the cord snag and been dragged off a table top. With the MagSafe, this would have been a non-event. But with this new design, flawed, terrible, short-sighted, customer hostile, my new machine hit the floor. Over the past several years, the Jon Ivy-inspired design changes have gone in the wrong direction away from customer focused and toward some sort of parallel universe minimalist design aesthetic that has neither customer nor user at its hart. Try today to figure out iTunes and all of the tiny 1/8 inch icons that have replaced simple to understand nearly universal commands that have graced similar devices for a quarter century. Anyway, the machine is great, the design sucks, Apple has lost their focus and is no longer insanely great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop A+++ Love it!!! Did not get the touchbar did not see a need for it. But love the size and the performance! My previous laptop was a Lenovo Thinkpad T460s, and what a contrast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from B&H is the best! Great laptop. And the service, delivery speed, price of B&H is superb. Thank you!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from USB-C is really mess-up It can not support USB Boot-up for Window Installation even you have USB-C type USB drive. so, Need to use ISO image to mount it while installing on BootCamp; It makes some difficulty to install Windows 10 on system with an addtional paritions. Actuallly, 4 USB-C or 2 USB-C port will not bothering you, because there is not much USB-C supporting devices; Do you want to buy a USB_A type device or USB_C type device in future ? you will choice USB_A type to use on the other devices also. AV(HDMI,USB-A,USB-C) Adapter is a mandatory option, and, USB-C to USB-A also, I think, if B&H bundle it for a new buyer, It should be the best for all. One more, when just light use under OSX, it is pretty quite and cool. But, If there is any heavy load under OSX or mid-high load under Windows, FAN sound is really loud.. If you consider the non-touch bar model, have to consider it. Touch-bar model is a double FAN, and much better in this point

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great machine...ports are limited and take some adjustment I upgraded the the latest MacBook Pro from the most recent base-model MacBook Air. This new machine is spec'd much higher, and performance is far better as a result. Screen is fantastic, although I primarily use an external monitor. The only reason I am giving four-stars is because of the limited number of USB-C ports on the two-port machine. Using an external monitor, I am forced to use a bulky adapter, and due to my other peripherals, thumb drives, iPhone, iPad, etc, still having USB Type-A cables, it has resulted in too much thinking (on my part) going in to the most efficient and elegant cable arrangement. The downside of early adoption, I suppose. Functionally, I am very happy with this new MacBook Pro as well as the quick service from B&H.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great laptop, with drawbacks. Expensive! I am a long time Apple user and I still believe that Apple products are expensive, but superior to those from competitors. I also appreciate the continuos stive to innovate that has always characterized Apple products. What I like about this new MacBook Pro is the size and weight. The laptop is very compact and lightweight, yet very powerful. The screen is beautiful and the images are crisp. One thing to mention is the keyboard. I liked the one from my 2013 MacBook Pro, but this one is terrific. Really fats and precise. However, this new MacBook Pro has also shortcomings. First it is expensive. I decided to drop the TouchBar because the price difference was really high and also I don't really see much use of it, to be honest. Second, there are only 2 (yes, two!) USB-C ports, in addition to a audio jack, which is really disappointing for this price point. Plus, if you consider that the USB-C ports are also used to charge the laptop, you are left only with one available when the battery needs charging. Third, USB-C. I think this type of connection is cool (it's fact, you don't have to fiddle with it everytime you need to plug something in, and so on), but nothing out there is compatible yet. Which means that you will need to spend extra money in a set of stupid adapters. Last but not least, the AC extended cable (the one that goes from the brick to the AC outlet)is not included. Yes, you heard it right. Not only you pay up the nose for this laptop, but you will also need to add the AC cable to the list of expenses. This is the most ridiculous thing they could have done.
