Engadget Review

There's lots to like about the new MacBook Pro: its slimmed-down design, brighter screen, improved audio, faster graphics and disk speeds. But by doing things like removing full-sized USB ports, the memory card reader and even the Function row, Apple seems to forgotten how many of us actually work. An even better MacBook Pro would be one that doesn't require users to make drastic changes to their workflow.

Pros
  • Attractive and well-built
  • Thinner and lighter
  • Retina screen is brighter and more colorful than ever
  • Impressive audio quality
  • Fast performance, especially the disk speeds
  • Touch ID is a useful addition
  • Spacious trackpad
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Easy to accidentally hit the Touch Bar instead of the Delete key
  • No memory card slot
  • The only ports are USB-C ports
  • Rated battery life is shorter this year
  • No more MagSafe
