    Big improvement from the 2013

    Switching from the 2013 MacBook Pro 13, the 2017 laptop looks and feels significantly better. I did a lot of research and watched tons of youtube videos before deciding to make my purchased. The colors on the screen pop more compared to the previous generation. Speakers are greatly improved. There is a huge debate about the keyboard and yes it is noticeably louder than the previous generation, but I am with those that love it. The keys do have a shorter depth but they seem to make typing much more accurate because the keys aren't spongy like the previous version. On the previous generation, keys may not register if you have light fingers. The backlight on the keyboard are much more appealing to look at. Battery life is the same and you can expect a full days or two of use with normal usage. I'm not a pro photographer so I can't say how big of an issue it is that the SDXC has been removed. I don't miss any of the ports being removed personally. I did have to purchase a USB 3.0 adapter to connect my CD Drive to install software that I have on CD's but that's a one time thing. For me personally, it's not something I'll have to carry around and if anything, I can just leave it in my backpack. The USB-C connection to charge isn't as bad as people make it out to be, it's actually nice that it's not magnetic. When I had the MagSafe connection, it use to always disconnect by accident with a light tug when using it on my lap. If you have a 2016 MacBook Pro version, you should probably save yourself the money as I don't think the 2017 is a major upgrade from last years. I didn't buy the touch bar one because I feel like it's a gimmick and prefer touch keys anyways. For the cost of the touch bar version, I would rather upgrade the storage and/or processor to i7. Do yourself a favor and get the space gray. The silver looks outdated. If you're using it for college, 128GB version may suffice if you want to save some money. I'd recommend at least the 256GB if you can fit it into your budget.

    My first MacBook!

    I have been a Windows user for my whole life. I never thought I would buy a Mac. I have set them up for people, but never used one long enough to understand what the big deal was. After 3 weeks of using my MacBook Pro, I can't see going back. I compared so many laptops over the course of a month or so. Lenovo, Dell, Acer, etc... Then I decided I should at least look at the MacBook Pro. I was sold pretty quickly, but still waited a week to buy it since it was a shift from everything I have known. I am positive I made the right choice though. The keyboard is so smooth and easy to type on. The battery life is amazing. It easily gets me through the day. The screen is beautiful, crisp, clear and accurate. The thing I love and appreciate the most is Sierra though. The OS is so smooth and quick. It took some time to get used to the gestures and shortcuts (I still am), but now I wouldn't want to go back to Windows. The trackpad is also useful and easy to use. The MacBook Pro is not without it's drawbacks, but they are not as bad as I thought they would be. I opted for the 13" non-touchbar Pro so I only have two USB-C ports on the left side. I was concerned about it, but I have not had an issue in the 3 weeks of use. I bought one $20 USB-A adaptor and have only even needed that a couple times. I do store most personal and work data in cloud drives and I don't hook up to other monitors very often. I will get a HDMI adaptor at some point. Another concern was storage. I was used to having 1 TB on my previous laptop. I opted for the 256gb MacBook Pro over the base of 128gb and it seems to be plenty considering my use of cloud storage. What is stored on the SSD drive is loaded very quickly. My final concern was programs and apps, but it turns out most of what I had on Windows I either didn't use as much as I thought, I was able to get on the Mac or I was able to replace with a Mac counterpart for pretty cheap. In my case none of those issues were really issues. I am very happy with the MacBook Pro and can definitely recommend it.

    Great laptop

    I sold my 2013 Retina to upgrade to this one. The bad: Price.....The base in 2013 was 128gb SSD, so it is criminal those are still the base model at this price point. I considered getting the 128gb to save $, but this is a long-term investment and the 128gb is already obsolete before you buy it. The iPhones are shipping with 128gb but this is supposed to be an expensive "Pro" laptop. Glad I got the 256 with trade in and college discount promotions. The good: The screen on this is amazing. Don't drop it or else it's a $400+ repair from apple :) The weight is improved, it feels 1lb lighter than the 2013 and the difference is noticeable. The Kaby Lake processors is a nice upgrade to catch up with the market. The speakers are a huge upgrade from the previous model. Space Gray looks awesome. I am getting used to the new keyboard. It is definitely more precise than the latest model, feels more accurate but a bit clicky. The Thunderbolt 3.0 I am indifferent about. They should have included the adapter to legacy USB so that it would work with an Iphone 7 out the box. I would give it 5-stars if the base model price point was 256gb.

    For many years I used an HP laptop because it fit my budget. However, I always was angered by how slow it was and knew I would eventually need to upgrade. The MacBook Pro is incredible, the screen is vibrant and clear, the keys with a backlit keyboard is awesome and the processor is faster than ever. I've always been an iPhone user and to be able to take a picture on my phone and it automatically appear on my laptop is awesome. Also, for those of you that are on-the-go types, you can write a document in pages or google docs and then open it right on your phone and continue where you left off. You surely get what you pay for with the Mac, I highly recommend investing in one!

    Beautiful Laptop

    I purchased this laptop from Best Buy the day before yesterday. I was having to pick between this and the HP Spectre X360. I have always used windows but was not impressed with the vulnerability of the OS. I was already in the Apple ecosystem having owned an iPhone and an iPad and just wanted the reliability of Apple in the form factor of a laptop. The beautiful space grey aluminum body feels premium and like a true Apple machine. This being my first Mac, the switch from Windows wasn't as dramatic as I thought to would it be. The amazing build quality paired with MacOS is perfection. The lack of ports isn't a big deal to me since I'm not a professional but I would have loved to have at least one USB A port. some might hate it, but I just love the 2nd Get Butterfly switches on the keyboard. they feel clicks and tactile. The gorgeous screen shows many colors and can reach a brightness of almost 500 nits. the Baby Lake processor helps keep everything snappy . The battery almost lasted me 9 hours. The speakers are beyond what I expected from a laptop of this size. The larger trackpad is welcome when using gestures. In conclusion, this portable beast is the best laptop you can buy for a student or a business professional. I hope to make this last for at least 4 years.

    Processing speed is amazing. i bought this to replace my MacBook Air purchased in 2015. Nothing was wrong with my Air, but i felt that I needed an upgrade for my dissertation work. The Pro is much faster, duh, but it is lighter; and the new keyboard is AWESOME!!!!! Didn't need the touchbar, as I think its not a fully developed tool as of yet. Go get one, its worth it!!!!!

    I own an older model Mac Pro tower and a newer iMac. I use them for video editing, which is my job. The graphics card on the tower started showing signs of wear. Coupled with it's inability to upgrade to the newest OSX, I decided to take the plunge and invest in a new machine. At first I was going to choose an open box of the slightly older model but at the counter found out it was ineligible for apple care. The sales guy hadn't realized that so said he could take 100 bucks off the price of the newest one plus get a student discount of another $125. It was a good enough deal for me, just had to decide on some specs. Since my tower is still good as a render machine I didn't feel the need to gork over the cash for the 16gb. I wanted the bigger 15" screen but couldn't justify the price difference. I also didn't care too much if i had the new touchbar or not. Maybe I just don't know what I'm missing, but I haven't been longing for it yet. The one thing I did care about was not settling for the base storage, I opted for the 256. That way I can easily fit all my apps plus project files if I know i will be working away from the office or my house. After a wild goose chase across 4 best buy stores to get the space gray, I finally got home with my new MBP and unboxed it. This is the moment I realized about the ports. I will admit - I initially freaked out and wanted to return it immediately. But what does that get me in the long run? After putting some thought into it I found an immediate temporary workaround. I transferred the apps and files I needed right away from my iMac via airdrop. The next day I purchased one USB adapter for immediate needs and when my 5% cash back comes through I will use that to order the Hyperdrive hub. I will also add that the space gray is outstanding and worth the several hours of my life it took to find one in stock. I just don't like the brightness of the silver and wouldn't want to look at it for 8 hours out of my day. First world problem, I know, but if I'm spending that much money, it's got to be worthwhile On to my initial testing with different apps. Final Cut Pro handled the project I pulled up really well, as expected. After Effects rendered out a 4 second animated graphic in 3 minutes and it looks fantastic. Cinema4D is what showed the poorest handling, as expected. This is obviously not a render machine nor would I ever try to use it as one but if I need to bang out a short 3D logo animation while on the go I think it will do ok. After a day of usage, I did not care so much about the smaller screen size. It was actually nice and easy to carry around the house and at work will hook up to a larger display anyways. I love the keyboard, definitely a plus in my book though I know there are mixed opinions. So the system takes up about 36gb and after downloading my musthaves those took up another 19, so long as I don't use this guy for any of my itunes stuff (entirely possible thanks to Spotify), I think I will be ok for awhile with 192gb remaining and utilizing externals. I don't love the small amount, but that's due to my budget and needing it in hand that same day. In short, this is not a complete replacement for any of my pro machines, but it will do in the interim and I have always wanted the laptop option. My office is on the warmer side (probably contributing to my graphics card failure) so to not have to leave a machine there is ideal.

    I went back and forth over different brands of computers, trying to find the laptop that would be the best for myself and my needs. Apple has always been my favorite, and I am glad this is the decision I made. Computer works great, no problems thus far, and is a lot faster than my old HP computer.
