Apple MacBook Pro
It’s razor thin, feather light, and even faster and more powerful than before. It has the brightest, most colorful Mac notebook display ever. And it features the Touch Bar — a Multi-Touch enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to the tools you want, right when you want them. MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking ideas. And it’s ready for yours. The 2017 MacBook Pro looks the same as last year’s model, and the beloved aluminum build is as sleek and premium as ever. Our test unit is a sharp Space Gray (the laptop is also available in silver), measures 0.61 by 13.75 by 9.48 inches (HWD), and weighs 4.02 pounds. It’s quite portable for a fast, high-end machine, a product area that Apple originally engineered with this very line. The size is nearly identical to the 2016 model (which has the same dimensions and is a few tenths of a pound heavier).
A revolutionary new way to use your Mac.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.2 It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more. And now, Touch ID is available on a Mac enabling instant access to logins and so much more.
MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there faster than ever with cutting-edge graphics, high-performance processors, whip-smart storage, and more.
This brings us to this screen, which is excellent. The 15.4-inch (2,880 by 1,800) IPS Retina Display is crisp, vibrant, and bright (500 nits, same as last year). It supports wide color (P3), and there are several scaled resolutions (from 1,024 by 640 to 1,920 by 1,080) to choose from if you’d like UI and text to appear larger. The color accuracy and gamut coverage will be important for photo editors, one of the creative types of users this sort of machine hopes to attract, though the screen is a bit prone to glare.
