Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Review

Index

This MacBook Pro also incorporates Touch ID situated at the right end of the Touch Bar. It works just like how it is on the iPhone, though most of the time I just end up typing the password myself instead of simply using my fingerprint to log in.

With its current specifications, this MacBook Pro can handle pretty much all the ‘pro’ tasks you give it. RAM maxes out at 16 GB, which again wasn’t well-received by some users. But despite that, MacOS Sierra ran without hiccups in the weeks that I have been using it.

Battery life is advertised to last for about 10 hours though results that I’ve gotten while using it is mostly hit and miss. There are times when I would get through the whole day without charging but there are times when I would find myself looking for a charger even after only a couple of hours of usage. Note that my usage was mostly restricted to using Pages and replying to emails. Apple already acknowledged the battery drain issues, so I’m sure it would be rectified in the future software update.

The Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar still wows in performance, but at its current state the cons outweigh the pros (especially if you consider how much it costs) – to which we can only give a limited recommendation.

We Like
  • Excellent top-notch design
  • Brilliant screen
  • Superfast performance
We hate
  • Touch Bar isn’t maximized yet with current apps
  • Battery life is subpar
  • Removal of other ports
  • Expensive
We Say
