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 3.5 GHz Intel Core i7 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.
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.
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 MQ012LL/A reviews

    13.3" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Mid 2017, Silver) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing machine! I bought the latest MacBook Pro a little wary of the new style function bar. but after only having it for about 3 hours, I am already thrilled with my purchase. this laptop is not only visibly faster than the previous one I bought (and then gave to my oldest son after a year), but the new function bar is incredible easy to use. the only thing I do not like about it, is the new charging connection port. I liked the older magnetic ports that gave you some protection if the cord got yanked somehow. the new plug in lightening style port doesn't seem as rugged to me. hopefully it doesn't become an issue in the future.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too far ahead in some of the wrong ways This is an update from my 4-year old Macbook Pro. The decrease in size and weight is very welcome. I'm still getting used to the touchbar on top, but so far it is a winner. The main focus of this review is to give a slight overview of the difference in using it in comparison to the previous version. Apart from the above items, the major change is in the ports supplied. For this version, they have gone to 4 USB-C ports and a headphone jack in place of the previous ports. My complaint with Apple is similar to 4 years ago. They are trying to be so far in hardware/port changes that it is time to replace the computer before they are widely used. Even now, Apple doesn't make an adapter to use the power supply from the previous version (the Magsafe). For photographers, it is especially notable that they have dropped the SD card reader. It is unfortunate that they didn't keep that as well as at least one standard USB port to aid the user in this transition time (assuming that USB-C is truly the port of the future). Also, on a hardware side, one of the four USB-C ports doesn't work and Applecare (by Chat) was quite unhelpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great machine! fast, great display. con - the absence of familiar ports was inconvenient. Thankfully the hyper-drive which is really a connector for $100 did the trick

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing simplicity! Everything works perfectly, smoothly and you don't need to take care of anything, it just works. Two bad things are price and�scratch susceptibility.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Laptop! This was a replacement for a 2011'ish MacBook Pro. I was not expecting that this new laptop would be sooo much better than the old one. I love the Touch ID. Overall less weight and much more powerful. The wifi is much faster. I have X high speed internet but the old laptop was sluggish. The new one is super fast. Just don't believe this Apple can be beaten. Was pricey but well worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine, not sure about the Touch Bar This was upgrade from my 2015MBP and it is overall a good upgrade. The new form factor rocks. Specs are great and it runs well. Were it not for the spec bump I wouldn't have got the Touch Bar model and I stand by that. I you don't need the bigger specs it's not worth it. I'm using this machine with a Mantiz Venus GPU and it works great under 10.13.
