MacOS X pleases - if you don't want to use any software, which does not exist with MacOS, there is no reason to Windows to transfer. Of course it requires a certain time of habituation for newbees. But since the Apple transferred to Intel processors,...

Apple MacBook Pro 13 (Late 2016, 2 GHz i5, without Touch Bar) Laptop Review

 

Brilliant, even without Touch? The new MacBook Pro laptops have arrived. The most striking new feature: a Touch Bar instead of function keys. Apple still offers a model without this novelty, and wants to target the "entry-level sector" – price: 1699...

excellent chassis and build quality, huge trackpad – still best in class, silent without high workloads, very good speakers, fast WLAN, very good display with perfect scaling (typical for macOS)

connectivity issues with 2.4 GHz WLAN and USB-C devices, clattering fan on our test model, only 3 ports, very expensive – especially the upgrades, poor webcam

Before we can get our hands on Apple's highly praised Touch Bar, we can review the entry-level model of the new MacBook Pro 13, which is already available. It is also supposed to replace the less expensive Air models in the medium-term if you ask...

MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar review

 

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

Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (13-inch, 2016) review:

 

Apple 's taking big swings with the new MacBook Pro . Some land square, some miss their mark. Altogether, this is a beautiful, powerful machine that almost everyone will want, but consider the trade-offs carefully.

The inventive Touch Bar streamlines work and saves clicks, and Apple has improved almost every part of the thinner, lighter MacBook Pro, including a larger touchpad, faster components and a flatter keyboard. iPhone's Touch ID is handy on the Mac, too.

You're paying a hefty premium for the Touch Bar, which supports only a limited handful of Apple apps for now. The USB-C-only ports mean carrying a bag full of dongles. The lack of high-end graphics or huge RAM options in the 13-inch model may frustrate...

Apple's smart, useful Touch Bar makes it well worth splurging on the step-up version of the streamlined 13-inch MacBook Pro.

MacBook Pro review (13-inch, mid-2012)

 

Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro may not be the star of the show now that the Retina model is in on the scene, but it nonetheless offers solid performance and a attractive, sturdy design.

Lovely designComfortable keyboard and trackpadGood day-to-day performance

No discrete graphicsRelatively low-res display

Equipped with a new Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor and Intel HD Graphics 4000, this year's MacBook Pro is a capable machine. Is it the highest-performing system out there? Nah -- and without discrete graphics or an SSD, that's hardly a surprise. This is...
