Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Mid 2017, i5, Touch Bar) Review

 

Early update. Apple already updates the MacBook Pro 13 after around 8 months. Modern Kaby Lake processors and faster SSDs are supposed to provide more performance. But did the manufacturer fix some issues of the predecessor? Update: The review is now...

excellent chassis and build quality ; huge trackpad with great precision ; quiet and good cooling ; high WLAN transfer speeds ; very good display with perfect scaling ; good speakers ; good battery runtimes ; steady performance, also on battery ; 4x...

...but reduced bandwidth for the ports on the right side ; neither USB-A nor HDMI-out ; 2.4 GHz WLAN issues with attached USB-C device ; poor webcam ; very expensive – especially the upgrades

We could just repeat the verdict from last year's model at this point, because not much changed with this update. The new Kaby Lake processor is a bit faster, but the GPU performance did not change. The efficiency aspect on the other hand is...

MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar review

 

The MacBook Pro 13 with Touch Bar is beautiful, but flawed.

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2016, Touch Bar)

 

The sleek new Touch Bar adds some genuine innovation to the well-designed and powerful 13-inch MacBook Pro, but as with all new Apple laptops, you'll need to carry lots of adapters or buy all-new peripherals.

Useful, versatile Touch Bar. Compact and sturdy chassis. Four USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Display supports DCI-P3 color spectrum.

Shallow key travel. No USB 3.0 ports. Requires adapters for legacy peripherals.

The redesigned 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro is sleek and capable with excellent interoperability (with iOS, Apple TV, and watchOS) thanks to the Touch Bar. And it has the power and battery life to keep you working all day. You'll have to adjust to the new...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2016)

 

The redesigned Apple MacBook Pro laptop is undeniably slim and sleek, with a better screen and improved performance over its predecessor. But because of its sole reliance on USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports, you'll have to either update all of your old...

Almost 12 hours of battery life. Compact and sturdy chassis. Two USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 ports. Display supports DCI-P3 color spectrum.

Shallow key travel. No USB 3.0 (Type-A) ports. Requires adapters for legacy peripherals.

Overall, the MacBook Pro is impressive, with improved screen quality and battery life over the previous model, and its use of 6th Generation Intel processors helps boost performance as well. Troubling though, is the move to USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 and the...

Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (Without Touch Bar)

 

The entry-level, 13-inch MacBook Pro doesn't have the buzz-worthy Touch Bar everyone is talking about, but that doesn't mean this isn't a formidable laptop. For $1,499, you get a brighter and more colorful screen than the previous 13-inch MacBook Pro,...
