Lisa Gade reviews Apple’s top of the line laptop, the 15” MacBook Pro with OLED Touch Bar, introduced in November, 2016.
** Read our full written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview...
The MacBook Pro is thinner (15.5mm) and lighter (4.03 lbs / 1.83kg) than ever, and it sports a much brighter 15.4” display and higher color DCI-P3 color gamut. The resolution remains the same as the outgoing model at 2880 x 1800, and the machine updates the quad core Intel Core i7 CPU and AMD graphics to Skylake 6th generation CPUs and AMD Radeon 450/455/460 graphics. We look at the $2,399 base model with the 2.6 GHz Core i7-6700HQ, 16 gigs of DDR3LP RAM and a 256 gig PCIe SSD. It’s available with the Intel Core i7-6820HQ CPU and up to 2TB storage, but RAM maxes out at 16 gigs.
The laptop has four full bandwidth Thunderbolt 3/USB-C Gen. 2 ports, one of which is used for charging (any one you like). It has a 3.5mm combo audio jack, and that’s the only legacy port. It ships with an 87 watt charger and has a 76 WHr battery. Like the 2016 13” MacBook Pro we recently reviewed, it has Apple’s extremely low travel butterfly keyboard, which is an improved version of the keyboard on the 2016 12” MacBook.
