“Very expensive”. That’s the thought that first comes to mind for most users who see the price tag MacBook Pro panel is Touch Bar. However, you are going to shop for a diamond cutter, when you need to open a jar of canned food, and don’t rent mine excavator to weed the patch. Each task is a suitable tool.
The feature of the related equipment in specialised media — journalists trying out the gadget in the first place on itself, and on this basis to draw conclusions about the success of a product.
That after the updates of 2015, the computer faces a complete change of design can be judged by a 12-inch ultraportable MacBook. But Apple went further than he could imagine anyone not admitted to the mysteries of development. Some of the ideas embodied in the new MacBook Pro, makes a bold and far-sighted, however, controversial and even outrageous in the eyes of conservative users.

“This is the most buggy of all Apple computers – says the designer. I don’t know whether this is due to hardware, software or a combination of both. Now, as I write this, the sound doesn’t work on it. Dynamics is simply not displayed in the settings of the audio output. Great!

From the point of view of speed and flexibility is a great solution. But until then, until USB-C will not be as common a standard as USB Type-A, HDMI, DisplayPort you have to use different adapters.
The designer had to add the adapters, external card reader, which has no place in a thinner laptop. The individual epitaphs deserved and magnetic power connector MagSafe. FRAS believes that the MacBook Pro 2016, ahead of its time, both in direct and partly in an ironic sense.
