MacBook Pro Late 2016: Overrated or Absolutely Amazing?

The MacBook Pro 2016 was rumored for a long time before it was actually announced. There were talks about all kinds of different features and appearances, some of which were that, just like the iPhone 7, the new MBP would not have a standard audio jack. Some rumors actually turned out to be true. Two examples of that are the USB-C ports and the Touch Bar.

Since the unveiling of the new series of MacBooks on Oct 27, a lot has also been said about Apple’s new computers. The reviews have not always been positive and despite that, the sales show that the new MBP has been in demand. It is said that, the late 2016 MacBooks are the first MacBooks that have been developed and released without any input from Steve Jobs. For years, the MBP has pretty much stayed the same with only minor improvements. Apple tech-fanatics have waited for a considerable update for a time and in my own opinion, Apple came through. The OLED Touch Bar is obviously the selling point of the MBP, which made it outsell other similar computers, like Microsoft’s Surface Book.

There has been reports of GPU problems with the new MBP 2016, mostly affecting the 15-inch versions. Myself, I haven’t had any problems at all with my 13-inch MBP 2016 with Touch bar, while others might have had the GPU problem. More on that can be found on 9to5mac.com
