Apple MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2016) review


Glass half full of promise

Luminous display ; Innovative Touch Bar ; Four USB-C ports ; Loud and clear speakers

Touch Bar not fully-realized ; Trackpad feels too big

While Apple's brighter and bolder 15-inch MacBook brings immediate benefits the second you turn it on, it has its quirks and feels like a laptop that will become much more useful down the line.

Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016, 2.6 GHz i7) Notebook Review


Better by a Touch? Apple slims down the MacBook Pro 15 quite radically and reduces the weight to around 1.8 kg with a thickness of just 16 millimeters. The professional notebook, which even gained customers from the 17-inch Pro in the past, is now even...

excellent chassis, very good display, huge trackpad with great precision, quiet and good cooling, high WLAN transfer rates, good speakers

neither USB-A nor HDMI-out, defective speakers due to BootCamp, 2.4 GHz WLAN issue with attached USB-C device, fans are (slightly) audible while idling, very expensive – especially the upgrades

The new Apple MacBook Pro 15 builds on the advantages of the predecessor and is one of the best devices you can buy right now in some respects. This definitely includes the excellent chassis, where the diet did not affect the quality or the stability....

2016 Apple MacBook Pro 15in with Touch Bar review


The ultimate MacBook is a flawed masterpiece

A fantastic balance of power and form ; So nice to type on ; Brilliant, bright, colourful screen

Very expensive ; Disappointing battery life ; Touch Bar isn't yet particularly useful

It's more flawed than you might expect, but the 15in Pro is still a magnificent thing

Apple MacBook Pro (15-Inch, 2016) Review and Ratings


Apple's new big-screen Pro impresses with its snazzy Touch Bar and slimmer, super-solid design. It's a good balance of performance and portability. Just know: You'll need dongles, and the keyboard is an acquired taste.

Superb screen ; Thinner and lighter than previous MacBook Pro models ; Excellent touch pad is now enormous

Pricey, given the components ; Unpredictable battery life

With its solid feel, bold screen, clean lines, giant touch pad, and svelte frame, Apple's new MacBook Pro 15-inch is a

Review: Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2016)


The new generation of MacBook Pros feel like the very distillation of Apple's design ideals. Thin, light, and powerful hardware that's designed to dominate in content creation, but it does so at the expense of some personality.

Still, it is hard to deny the great new design, the gorgeous new Retina Displays, the super fast SSD storage, the versatile Touchbar, lighter form factor, vastly improved speakers and ability to charge the device from any of the four ports are all...

Review: Apple's late-2016 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar


Apple's new Late 2016 15-inch MacBook Pro is the lightest and thinnest MacBook Pro ever, but unlike the company's earlier ultralight MacBook Air, it packs a fast, quad-core Intel CPU and a dedicated AMD Radeon Pro GPU along with 16GB of high speed RAM...

Kort testrapport Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016, 2.6 GHz i7) Notebook


Beter met Touch? Apple heeft de MacBook Pro 15 redelijk radicaal afgeslankt en het gewicht tot ongeveer 1,8 kg verlaagd, met een dikte van slechts 16 millimeter. De professionele notebook die vroeger zelfs klanten overnam van de 17-inch Pro, is nu ook...

uitstekende behuizing; erg goed scherm; enorm trackpad met uitstekende precisie; stille en goede koeling; hoge WLAN-snelheid; prima luidsprekers

geen USB-A of HDMI-out; defecte luidsprekers dankzij BootCamp; 2.4 GHz WLAN-problemen met aangesloten USB-C-toestel; ventilatoren (ietwat) hoorbaar in inactieve toestand; erg duur - zeker met upgrades

Подробный обзор ноутбука Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016)


Толщина нового ноутбука Apple уменьшилась до 16 миллиметров, и он весит заметно меньше в сравнении с предшественником. Теперь 15-дюймовый Pro, вытеснивший в прошлом 17-дюймовый вариант, может стать неплохим выбором для тех, кто ранее пользовался...

15-дюймовый ноутбук Apple остаётся одним из наиболее продвинутых устройств на рынке. Нам понравился яркий, качественно калиброванный экран и достаточно звонкое, подробное звучание встроенной акустической системы. Отсутствие привычных полноразмерных...

Kısa inceleme: Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016, 2.6 GHz i7) Notebook


Touch daha mı iyi? Apple, MacBook Pro 15 modelini radikal bir şekilde inceltip ağırlığını 1.5 kg ve kalınlığını 16mm seviyelerine kadar indirmiş. Profesyonel cihaz 17 inçlik Pro modelinden de geçmişte kullanıcı kazanmayı başarmıştı ve şimdi de 13 inç...

Test Apple MacBook Pro 15 (Late 2016, 2,6 GHz) Laptop


Um einen Touch besser? Apple speckt das MacBook Pro 15 radikal ab und bringt es auf ein Gesamtgewicht von rund 1,8 Kilogramm bei einer Dicke von gerade einmal 16 Millimetern. Damit wird das Arbeitstier, das ehemals sogar Kunden des 17-Zoll-Pro...

Hervorragendes Gehäuse, Sehr guter Bildschirm, Riesiges Trackpad mit toller Präzision, Leise und gute Kühlung, Hohe WLAN-Übertragungsraten, gute Lautsprecher

Kein USB-A und HDMI Port, Defekter Lautsprecher durch Bootcamp, 2.4 GHz WLAN Problem bei angeschlossenem USB Gerät, Lüfter im Idle (leise) hörbar, sehr teuer – vor allem die Aufpreise

Das neue Apple MacBook Pro 15 baut auf die Stärken des Vorgängers auf und gehört in einigen Kategorien sicherlich zu den besten Geräten, die derzeit erhältlich sind. Dazu zählt zweifelsohne das erstklassige Gehäuse, dem die Diät im Hinblick auf die...
