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 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, a 256GB 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 4.6 out of 5 by 290.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid The build quality and keyboard are amazing. The Touch ID is very useful but not there yet. I'm hoping future updates will allow me to use the ID to authorize everything, such as updates installs etc. currently it's a mixed bag. As for the touch bar I would say it is very gimmicky. I have yet to find a useful feature for it but will say it is nice, doesn't take away from the experience. Overall really like the darker color and the track pad and it's fast. If you need to upgrade just get the latest. Buy a $7 adapter from USB c to a.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome laptop! This laptop has been exactly what I've been looking for. Lightweight, reliable, very thin, and fairly powerful to get things done! I agree with the majority of buyers in the fact that it's extremely overpriced. However, I will say that I've purchased and returned other laptops before settling on the MacBook Pro. Compared to other high-end laptops by other brands, the MacBook Pro is lightyears ahead in quality and build. From the hardware components to the software, especially MacOS. I've you have a little extra money to spend, I highly recommend this product. Save yourself the hassle of replacing a laptop again in probably 2 years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Form and Function This laptop is beautifully crafted out of aluminum. So light, thin and seamless unlike most plastic cased PCs. The keyboard keys feel great and the unit is virtually silent even though there are two fans. It gets a little bit warm but not hot like my last laptop. Fast graphics and very responsive trackpad. Great battery life too! I am getting close to 10 hours of use. It's true, you get what you pay for and this is definitely at the level of luxury laptops! Only downside is the Thunderbolt 3 ports but I just bought a couple USB converters since most of the things I hook up to it are USB and problem solved. It's the only way to make the case so thin. Plus you can charge it from any of the ports on either side.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really good looking machine, so so upgrade. Moved from a 13 Retina MacBook Pro, the machine is wonderfully designed, amazing how the shaved so much thickness on the machine and the Space Grey color makes the machine look just mean. Now, battery life is just unacceptable, really bad under normal circumstances. The Touch Bar is a nice addition but just that, nice but as of now, not really a game changer feature. Will have to wait and see what future versions of macOS can do with the Touch Bar and also how other apps take advantage of it, in the meantime an OK upgrade to a really good machine, the MBP 2014 Retina 13 but not the jump I expected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected! This laptop is amazing. It's fast, has beautiful graphics, nice audio and is light weight. I was hesitant to pull the trigger because I haven't used a mac in 15 years and always heard PCs are better for business use. I now completely disagree and feel more productive than ever with my business work. The integration of iphone texts and phone calls is a huge plus. I never miss texts or phone calls when my iphone ringer is off and it's so much easier to reply to texts via the MBP keyboard. I purchased an inexpensive USB converter for my microsoft mouse - it works perfectly. The transaction with B&H Photo was simple and exactly as described regarding product, free shipping, delivery and $0 sales tax.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ara�ado y sin noticias de atenci�n al cliente Compr� mi mac el viernes 8 de diciembre por la ma�ana y cuando llegu� al hotel y lo abr�, estaba ara�ado. Lo guard� y corr� a la tienda, en el taxi llam� a atenci�n al cliente pero me dijeron que no estaban en la tienda, no pod�an ayudarme pero que me pasaban con la tienda. Tras esperar me colgaron el tel�fono y pese a ir corriendo cuando llegue eran las 13:10 y la tienda estaba cerrada.� Los s�bados no abren y yo me volv�a a Espa�a por la tarde, as� que escrib� al customer service pero no he recibido contestaci�n desde entonces... Una pena porque me hab�an hablado muy bien de esta tienda y yo ahora tengo un Mac nuevo pero con un par de ara�azos

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great laptop The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is for a couple reasons. I understand how amazing and valuable the USB-C drive is for the future of computing. However, I really miss the magnetic charging cable from my old Macbook Air. It was convenient for those times you were charging the laptop somewhere that kids may have a tendency to get too close to it. The USB-C charging for the MacBook Pro does have the advantage of being able to charge the laptop on either side though, which is nice, since there are 2 outlets on each side of the laptop. The touchbar is awesome and works well. The screen resolution is wonderful. And overall, it works very well!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great but agh So it’s a wonderful laptop. Beautiful. Quiet. Fast. Of course mine would have some defects though. There is an issue with UI lag related to the keyboard light. I’m still waiting for the Apple team to figure that out. The ports on the left side are slow. Every large scale release of anything has a small percent riddled w defects. I think I’m in the small percentile. Other than the issues mentioned this thing is absolutely wonderful. However for almost 2k I’ve gotta leave it 2 stars. Bh has a two day return policy. Be warned
