Apple Z0UQ-MPXY25-BH overview

Experience the innovative interface of the Touch Bar in the mid 2017 silver Apple 13.3" 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 7th Gen Kaby Lake 3.1 GHz Intel Core i5 dual-core processor, 16GB of 2133 MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory, a 1TB PCIe-based SSD, four Thunderbolt 3 (USB Type-C) ports, a 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 High 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 13.3" Retina Display has a 2560 x 1600 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 MacBook Pro 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 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 14.9 mm thin, the MacBook Pro weighs just three pounds.
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.
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 Z0UQ-MPXY25-BH reviews

    13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2017, Silver) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't buy it unless it is absolutely necessary I bought this nearly 3 months ago. I put off the purchase for a long time, because I knew it would be painful to get everything up and running. Well, it certainly was at least as much of a pain as I anticipated. I was forced to do something simply because my older MacBook Air was overheating so much, in spite of putting on iStat software to monitor core temperature and thus to minimize simultaneous use of some intense apps, e.g., Lightroom, and other Adobe products at the same time as Safari is running; Powerpoint was just a little additional heat-producing source. As a consequence of the overheating, operation slowed to nearly a standstill, requiring reboots every few hours on some days. Anyway, this "upgrade" also necessitated a two-level upgrade in Mac OSX. Thus, many of my legacy Adobe apps (Photoshop, Acrobat Pro, etc) no longer function. I decided not to upgrade to the Adobe subscription, as I do not use them (except Lightroom) often enough to justify their high cost. I got the new MBP with maximum RAM and storage but midrange speed. What I like about the new MBP is the sharp Retina display, the touch login (like iPhone), and the simple tap to get Siri. So far, I've not seen any problems with the keyboard, unlike others. Apps may start slightly faster than previously but not an impressive leap forward. Some of what I dislike I believe I've already implied. I was pretty happy with OSX 10:11, but I do not like 10:13 although I've become accustomed to it. A big hassle is Apple's use of the Thunderbolt 3 connections and nothing else: I got the model with 4 of 'em, so I could plug an adaptor that goes into two of them, enabling two USB3, SD card, and HDMI connections; the adaptor runs so hot that I don't know how long it will last though. One of the other two Thunderbolt 3's can be used for the power cord going to the charger, which no longer has the handy hooks for the cord that Apple has had for a few decades.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine, but Touch Bar is just as dumb as everyone says I ordered the MacBook Pro w/ Touch Bar primarily because it had 4 USB-C ports. I'm happy with the USB-C ports; I'll have to get new a new set of widgets and converters but it's an improvement to have a bunch of identical ports. In particular, I like being able to plug power in on left or right side as appropriate for the location of the outlet. The screen is nice. Fit and finish are perfect. The machine itself is fine once one accepts that laptops today aren't any faster than those from 2 (or 3, or 4...) years ago. Space gray is a nice, sophisticated color but does show dust more easily. Too much has already been written about the negatives of the Touch Bar, but I'll pile on: it's a marriage of adequate but unremarkable hardware (Apple, you spoiled us with Retina displays) matched with terrible software. I use an external Kinesis keyboard, so I still have my ESC and FN keys and don't care about losing those, but I've struggled to find any real use for the Touch Bar. First I tried the default "App-Specific" Touch Bar setting. What a nightmare; it changes constantly in distracting ways, and it's always behind your thoughts. At least you can turn off the spelling suggestions. (It's interesting that a feature that is helpful/necessary for single-finger texting on the iPhone is completely stupid and annoying when you have all your fingers.) I've tried various 3rd party Touch Bar customizations, but Apple's restrictions on how the customizations can work makes them less useful than I'd hoped. Plus they crash. (I admit to not putting in the effort on these; I may try again later.) I finally went with "expanded control strip" option; it's not particularly useful but at least you get static Touch Bar definitions this way. Even with modest goals (e.g. adding a button to lock the machine) the Touch Bar is still annoying because it turns itself off after a short amount of idle time. Apple's guidelines says it should be treated like a keyboard, not a display, but what kind of keyboard requires being woken up from energy saving mode (even when plugged in!) before you can use it? It should be called the "Two-Touch Bar".
