The first reviews of the new MacBook Pro: an engineering marvel with an incredible display
This week Apple announced a new MacBook Pro and was given the opportunity to pre-order the new items: first samples with the bar Touch Bar can be obtained in 2-3 weeks. In the first stage are, as a rule, journalists and bloggers, who are looking forward to the new and also the most active users, who managed to get in the “first wave”. But to discuss the MacBook Pro has already begun – some publications were made to the devices immediately after the presentation.
The Verge noted a positive change in the trackpad and keyboard laptops. The new MacBook Pro uses a superior keyboard with the butterfly mechanism of the second generation for more comfortable typing and quick response. It is also possible to reduce the height of the keys and thereby make laptops more compact. For the first time such a keyboard presented in a 12-inch MacBook Pro. Not all users like the tactile feel while typing, while the proponents of such a keyboard no less. Second, what drew the attention of the editorial – the new trackpad on the laptop was “just huge”.
Columnists Forbes estimated the form factor and weight of the device. Jonathan Ive has traditionally sought to make Apple products more thin and light, MacBook Pro is no exception. Version with 13-inch display weighs only 1.37 kg, while the 15-inch model – Both of 1.83 kg. the device is convenient to take with you on trips, this compact version of the MacBook Pro was comparable in weight to the MacBook Air. Previously, many made a choice in favor of the 13-inch “proshek” only because they were significantly lighter 15-inch. “Now there is no fundamental difference, you can select the version powerful,” said to Forbes.
Journalists Macworld was surprised that Apple decided to leave only USB ports-C (4 pieces – two on each side, with the exception of the Junior version, which has two Thunderbolt 3) and 3.5 mm audio Jack, which lost iPhone. The lack of standard USB interfaces significantly complicate the work of not only the periphery but also with smartphones Apple – user not able to sync or charge your gadget without the appropriate adapter. To use SD cards now also have to fork out for the adapter.
In Engadget noticed on the screen of the new MacBook Pro, calling it “terrific.” At last year’s laptops from the “professional” line of Apple’s excellent Retina display, but when comparing with the new models the advantage of the latter is visible to the naked eye. The image has become more saturated, bright and contrast.
“Even if not to take into account the touch bar Touch Bar, the new laptops is a real engineering marvel, writes Engadget. – MacBook Pro in his hands felt solid and monolithic product, and the color Space Gray novelties adds special chic. It’s amazing how Apple managed to fit a complete filling of the MacBook Pro in a case that weighs even less than the MacBook Air. I took in one hand his Air and other 13-inch Pro was not able to determine the difference.
And, of course, impossible to discuss the technical specifications without mentioning the new screen. Display extended gamut is a significant upgrade compared to laptops of the previous generation. The new MacBook Pro, without a doubt, the bright screen with the best color rendition among all Apple laptops”.
MacBook Pro left positive emotions to all who managed to hold “Apple” novelty. So far, the Apple magic works, although some “innovative” solutions leave a number of questions that the above resources chose to remain silent.
