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

Introducing, Apple’s new laptop, the Macbook Pro, with a touch bar. The new computer is slimmer and lighter than it’s predecessors, making it a slightly more transportable device. In this model, Apple has also removed all it’s legacy ports for Thunderbolt 3-powered USB-C, forcing you to have to buy a whole bunch of dongles. The main touch of this model is, of course the touch bar, that replaces the function keys.

Features

The macbook’s key feature is of course, is the mini slice of an ipad know as the touch bar, located at the top of the keyboard. The touch bar has a fingerprint scanner, allowing users to use Apple pay and Touch ID. It also allows you to adjust brightness and volume and works with other apps, which for now are mostly apple made apps but more 3rd party support is inevitable.

Pros

The macbook is currently the best macbook on the market with the touch bar making some task a little simpler and quicker. Also, being smaller and lighter than the rest of the macbook family, it is easier and more convenient to transport, making for better for using on the go.

Cons

One of the main problems is the large number of dongles required to get the legacy ports back, which some may find rather annoying. Also the computer runs at 16GB of RAM, which some find a little too low, expecting 32GB as a benchmark for the RAM. Also the lack of third party support is rather disappointing. All factors driving people away from macbook and to windows.
