Apple MacBook Pro overview

Experience the innovative interface of the Touch Bar in the late 2016 silver 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 2TB 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.

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, Silver) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save $1000 and upgrade 8 year old MacBook Pro Yes, it was time to upgrade the 2010 17 inch MacBook Pro that served me so well. �It still is in use actually, just not my main computer now. �The new 2016 was just too good to pass up for $1000 off. �I love the SSD and having 2 TB of space now. �Apple confirmed that I wouldn't see a difference and if I did it would be minimal in performance. �I don't miss my 17 inch screen as much as I thought I would and I actually like the Touch Bar and keyboard. �And it's so light compared to the old warhorse. �Photoshop and everything else is obviously faster now. �I still wish they had all the ports like the old days but such is "progress."

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional computer; far better than the caviling reviews I updated from a 2012 Retina MacBook Pro, and considering the reviews on these new MacBook Pros I was expecting to be underwhelmed. I knew I would be happy to have more storage, but I had no idea how great the new computer would actually be. 1. The screen is fantastic. The wider color gamut and better default calibration are miles ahead of earlier MacBook Pros. Screen quality is a huge issue for any computer, and the reviews on these new MacBook Pros seem to have just mentioned this in passing. It is a major difference to anyone. 2. The touch bar is very natural and convenient. I would never want to go back to the static function buttons after having the touch bar for a couple of days. Even something as routine as changing screen brightness or volume is much easier on the touch bar. You put your finger on the icon and slide it. No tap tap tap tap tap--you get immediate continuous quick control. Although I wouldn't buy a new computer to get the touch bar, it is not a gimmick. It is a much better use of space and provides much better control. 3. The addition of Touch ID is also very very welcome. I use a password manager, and opening it with Touch ID is much easier than using my long maser password. Opening the computer with Touch ID is also faster. As with the touch bar, it's a great improvement if not a reason to upgrade on its own. 4. The keyboard backlighting is actually useful. On previous MacBook Pros, the bleeding of light around the keys was really distracting and made the backlighting of limited use to me. The new keyboard completely eliminates this in practice. This is another small improvement that adds up to a big overall upgrade in using the computer. 5. The bigger trackpad opens new possibilities. Without the constraints of the smaller trackpad, I find work faster and easier. I'm resting my palms on the new one while typing and it's not a problem. Again, it's a small improvement but combines with other small improvements to make a big difference. 6. The compromise between thinness, weight, battery life, and speed seem ideal to me. You can definitely get a notebook computer with better specs, but I would not want to carry that computer around. I think Apple got it right. The actual speed in practice (even video encoding withe HandBrake, for example) is terrific. The performance feels to be better than the sum of it's parts on a spec sheet. 7. The adoption of USB-C is simply not an issue. On my previous MacBook Pro I was using an external SD card reader anyway because it read SDXC cards much faster than the internal reader. Everything else just gets a little Anker plug adapter, new cord, or works with USB-C already. It just isn't an issue in practice. 8. The sound is excellent. I greatly appreciate being able to enjoy music on the fly without a bluetooth speaker. I'm extremely happy with everything about this new MacBook Pro. Judging from the reviews I was only going to get more storage by upgrading, but everything about it is very well thought out and better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This MBP is outstanding! This is my fourth MPB, I update every 2 years or so. Its construction is absolutely next to none, nicest MacBook construction ever. This is the 15/2.9GHz/16GB/AMD460/2TB SSD. I really didn't expect it to be significantly faster than my 2014 model, but is for sure. I love having all the flexibility of the USB-C capability (Thunderbolt3, USB-3.1 Gen. 2, Displayport, HDMI). of course you need the right adapters, but this thing has enormous potential. Battery is good, I have no issues with it, getting around 8 hours + on normal activity. Keyboard is different, but I like it, you just have to get used to the change. The touch bar to me is also very cool, more applications coming down the road, it not a gimmick as so many have been touting, I think its pretty innovative. Like anything new, you can't expect it to be part of your norm until you've used it for a couple months. Price well that's Apple, but I can tell you I'll be getting a good resale on my previous MBP. Its just a good computer . .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 tb of SSD! I love this machine. I got it in 2018 so its a few generations old. But it still really flies. Having 2tb of ssd was the real blessing for me. I love having all my files with me at all times. When I don't have access to the internet and my cloud drive. I can still get work done.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A portable iMac 5k I moved from a fully loaded 5k iMac to this MacBook Pro. Extremely well put together laptop. Screen is amazing - hard to describe how great it is. SSD speed is incredible. Overall very happy with this machine. The only worry was the lack of any ports other than USBC/Thunderbolt 3. This problem has been solved by a handful of very small USBC to USBA adapter for my existing external gear.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Laptop Really good laptop. Replaced my old 17" MacBook Pro with this one and its working flawlessly. Great price from B&H and they even met the expired sales price for me. Very happy with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mac I have ever owned. Giving this a 5 star review because it is the nicest, fastest, best user experience Mac I have ever used. That being said I am not sure about the touch bar. I find myself using it more and more so time will tell. Love the key board and track pad. Much lighter than my 2015 MBP. What I love the most about it is the display jumps off the table and things looks beautiful. Placing my 2015 MBP side by side to the space grey 2016 MBP there is a world of difference. The old model the first thing you notice is the keyboard and you eye has to hunt for the display as if the display was an after thought. On the 2016 the first thing your eye goes to is the display. That alone was worth the expense of a new Mac. Think I am going to sell my iPad Pro as this display blows the iPad away and I don't think I will use it anymore. 2TB of storage is expensive but it is lighting fast and I don't have to spend all my time managing space. Battery life is not anything like they advertise. I get about 4 hours of moderate to heavy use working with photos. I imagine if you turn the display down to 50% and just surfed the web you may get 6 or 7 hours but I am not impressed with the battery life. I picked up a second charger for $79.00 only to find out that the usb c cable is not included. What are they thinking? The charging cable was a $35.00 add on. It would be like going to the gas station to buy gas for $2.00 a gallon only to find out you need to rent a hose for $1.00 to get it from the pump to the car. Oh well all in all it is a fantastic machine and I love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This computer is a beast For being a mobile device, this MacBook Pro is amazing. Super fast, no lag or hanging, and it's got tons of room for my extensive iTunes library and Photos gallery. I even have my iCloud documents all downloaded and still have just over 1TB of space free. With the right accessories, I can still use my USB and Thunderbolt 2 items from my previous 13 MacBook Pro. The screen is huge and sharp and the sound is great! I'm looking forward to the next few years with this thing!
