    Very nice laptop but...

    Nice laptop, on par with my XPS 15 9560... biggest annoyance is Apple's inability to put more RAM into the machine, they say it's because they don't want to drain the battery but there are plenty of Windows machines (my XPS) that can handle +GB of DDR4 just fine and still provide great battery life. In my opinion 16GB of DDR3 and not being able to upgrade when spending almost $3000.00 on a laptop is unacceptable, i'll deal with it for now as i only use this for some editing but that is very frustrating. It's a very clean, nice looking zippy machine that is for sure. It's supposed to be much brighter than my XPS 15 (300 nits) at 500+ nits but i don't see too much of a different. The build of the machine is rock solid and i actually like the 4 USB type C ports, not sure why so many people are throwing a fit about that as everything is moving in that direction. All in all this is a very nice laptop but i'd like to see the memory improved and the price dropped. I purchased the fully loaded version and after tax it's over $3000.00, add Applecare (3 years) and you're looking at closer to $3500.00. If you're an Apple person, then i would recommend, but if you're a PC guy i'd stick with my high end DELL XPS 15 9560. Also, forgot to mention the touchbar, touch ID, trackpad and keyboard. The touchbar has improved and is a useful tool if you ask me, the trackpad is massive, almost ridiculously big but i don't use it, i use an external mouse so i don't care either way. Touch ID has worked fine for when i need it (it doubles as the power button) and the keyboard, which many aren't too fond of, i happen to love, barely have to touch the keys and too me that feels really nice while typing.

    MacBook Pro 15" with touch pad

    This is my second MacBook Pro. Actually, I still have my original MacBook Pro 15" w/retina and I am still using it everyday. So far I like this computer. I like how all of my apple products integrate with this MBP. Things do work even better in terms of the syncing and integration. However, I am not sure it's really worth the money and it's a lot of money for sure. Apple's products are continuing to rise in cost but I am not sure their ingenuity and technology is matching their cost and reputation any longer, but that's just my opinion. With all of that being said I still like Apple products, but some of their appeal is starting to fade for me especially as I weigh the cost to own them now. So what I really like about this computer is the touch id. I absolutely love that I can unlock my computer with the touch of my finger, but even better than that my Apple Watch can automatically unlock this Mac. That by far has to be my favorite feature. I can just open it up and boom my watch unlocks it and I am on my way doing what I need to do. I also really like the display. It's definitely better than my 2012 MBP w/retina. The colors are vibrant and I just like how everything looks. I also really like the feel of the keyboard and the trackpad is nice. The touchpad is pretty cool, but it's a little underwhelming considering I was really excited about it before I started using it. It's not bad it's just not incredible. I don't know that I am really seeing any noticeable difference in terms of the speed. It seems to handle operations and functions very similarly to my older MBP. It may be actually better, but I am not able to tangibly see the difference. Apple still has to do better with the native email client. It's just not good at all and for the reputation Apple has this app fails in every way. Safari needs to be better as well. There are things I like about it but I still find I am using Chrome 75% of the time. Overall I am mostly happy with this MacBook. I think it has some nice upgrades compared to previous models of the MBP. Do the upgrades justify the cost? I don't think they do, but I think you will get a computer that is very well built and will last a very long time. Like I said my original MBP (2012) is still going strong and it doesn't seem to be anywhere near it's end. I don't think you can say that about any other computer. So from that standpoint maybe you could justify the cost. It's definitely going to last longer and work better out of the box and on an ongoing basis that pretty much any PC.

    Powerful replacement for desktop PC

    I had been nursing a weary Windows XP desktop as my main home computer for too many years and was looking for a powerful option that could also handle an extensive music library and photo collection. My wife had been running a smaller MacBook for just over a year and I also have an I-phone... So it made sense to get another Mac product for compatibility reasons alone. This MacBook Pro has been a revelation to me. I have been using PC's at home and at work for many years and was worried that I would struggle with a new operating system but the software is very intuitive and I had the machine fully operational right out of the box.... and what a machine! Beautiful design and solid construction make it a pleasure to use. The battery life is stunning and the screen resolution is truly amazing. I was concerned that going from my 24" monitor on my PC to a small 15" laptop would be prohibitive but I have not had any problems with real estate and have found it very easy to use the track-pad as an input device for basic photo editing. The tricky little 'power bar" or whatever it's called, is still a bit of a novelty item to me but I keep forgetting to use its options! As I become more familiar with the machine, I'm sure I will utilize it more. I do like the fingerprint recognition option for logging in...that is very cool tech. I keep discovering more and more clever little tidbits-bits within the Mac software and I must confess, I am not missing the Windows OS one bit. I like to think that I am more protected by using Mac OS but I am working with a trial subscription to BitDefender security software and will probably add that full time in a few weeks. It seems to be a very reliable piece of kit and doesn't affect operating speed at all. All in all, I am really happy with this purchase and once again received excellent retail service at my local Best Buy. I made sure to visit the store on a weekday afternoon when the staff were not so busy and was able to spend quality time with a sales assistant to get my questions answered. It looks like we are an Apple family now!

    I thought I would be extremely happy when I upgraded from my 2012 15” MacBook Pro with an i7 2.3Ghz and a 2GB additional video card, which I upgraded to 8GB Corsair RAM and a Samsung 500GB SSD. This 2017 15” model contains an additional 4GB video card, 16GB RAM, 500Gb Flash Storage, and an i7 2.9Ghz processor, and 802.11ac capable. I am not impressed, I don’t do reviews much, I’d have a You Tube channel if I did. My 2012 MacBook Pro is just as fast, if not faster processing same workload than this 2017 model with hyped up specs. Even when I boot up the computer, my 2012 model boots up faster. I purchased this one thinking the processor and the Flash Storage would make it faster, not the case. I do like the display and the touch bar is useful. I’m not going to sit here and tell you not to buy it, it’s your money. I will says that if you have an older model (2012 and Up).. look into updating your hard drive, RAM, and as far as the 5Ghz network you can purchase the Linksys USB that works with MAC and you’ll have a fast computer with 802.11ac capable... for way less. If you’re just wanting the touchbar and higher video card, plus other not so necessary updates, then upgrade. If you have any questions, I will be glad to answer. Just remember that it’s my personal opinion and I’m being brutally honest. The computer works fine, I’m giving it 3 stars because I feel no difference using this one than using my older 2012. Also, I didn’t talk about all the specs on the 2017 so ask questions if you need to please.

    Love Everything About The New MacBook Pro!

    So I finally decided to spend the money on one of the most expensive laptops on the market. Even though it is pricey, it was worth every penny! I purchased the MacBook Pro 2017 15.4 inch, 2.9GHz, 512 SSD with Touch Bar. After reading reviews and doing my research I was a bit apprehensive since I had always been a windows user and had never touched a MacBook in my life. I've had an iPhone for quite many years and was familiar with Mac's Os and it kind of made the transiition a little less scarier. I recieved a $150 discount do to a price match from Amazon and that made the thought of me spending almost $3,000 on a laptop somehow a little less stressful. Unboxing my brand new MacBook Pro was exciting and Awesome! As soon as I got it out of the box I knew I had purchased a Beautiful laptop! Set up was a breeze and once I got to learning the intricacies of using a Mac I became extremely comfortable. I can not overstate how fast this thing is and how quick the responsiveness is. The display is perfect and crystal like. The Trackpad takes a few movements to get used to, but once you do you will be off to the races. I've read other reviews where ppl were no too fond of the keyboard, but I like it and have no complaints. The touch bar is very cool and does come in handy! Battery life I can honestly say I haven't really got into intensive usage yet to really test it, but so far so good. Overall if your thinking about taking the plunge into a new Macbook, I suggest spend the extra money if you're able to and know that you have purchased a laptop that you know is future proof where you won't have to worry about it being obsolete in a few years. That is one of the main reasons ns I got the MacBook Pro. Plus its pretty powerful! Good Luck!

    I upgraded from a 2012-era MBPr to this model, 15" touchbar. I love the faster CPU, faster disk, longer battery life, but overall it's been a fair let down. The track pad area has gone from too small to massive; I touch it while typing all the time, which causes the mouse to jump around on the screen, possibly resulting in changing window focus. The touch bar is obnoxious for anyone that uses the escape key frequently; you have no idea if it's registered the touch or not, since it literally is like typing on a hard plastic sheet. The actual keyboard is not much better than a hard plastic sheet; the keys move very little and if you use a mechanical keyboard on your desktop, then move to this, you'll just be slamming the keys, very loudly I would add. With the ports limited to only USB-C, forget about the old accidental kick of the power cable just causing it to pop off, and prepare to buy adapters for your older USB devices. The back-lit Apple logo is also gone, so good luck determining if the unit has actually powered off. I've had to resort to manually selecting suspend, or using a suspend button I've added to the touch bar, to perform that task before closing the lid, and it still occasionally continues running, which means I pull out a hot dead laptop a few hours later when I get to my destination. It's a good laptop, but not great; wish there was a mixture of 2012 and 2017, where track pad is in between, old keyboard returns, throw in the old power connector and a single USB-A port, give me an escape key.

    Great So Far!

    This is my Third MBPro. I started with the 15" 2007 Model which was great and stolen from my office. I made a serious upgrade after that and bought the MacPro Tower. Amazing. From there I had the 2015 MBPro which my daughter now has since her computer died. On each of these I edit large RAW files and do video editing occasionally. On the MacBook's I always use external drives. This new MBPro has worked extremely well so far. The one glitch is the USB C ports that I have to use adaptors for. Glitch may not be the right word but the drives just don't seem as fast as they should. And I have had one case of data imported from a CF card that was corrupted in the transfer due to a bad connection. I deleted the files, switched adaptors, and everything was perfect. Still, I don't like the thought of that type thing happening. Once accessories catch up(and my budget allows the purchasing of the accessories) I guess this problem will go away. I use Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom most often. I still have the old Aperture program that I run since I have hundreds of thousands of images in Aperture Libraries that I'll pull an image from occasionally. I need to commit everything to Light Room at some point but that kind of time isn't in my schedule! Overall, I think this is a great computer. I have it connected most days to a 4K monitor and Bluetooth Apple keyboard and pad. No issues there. Touch bar works fine but I don't use it often. Good overall investment if you are a mac person. If you're not a Mac Person, this may just convert you!

    Apple always delivers, despite negative reviews

    I bought this MacBook to replace my 2015 MacBook Pro 13" and I'm glad I did. I was very hesitant to purchase this laptop after reading the reviews of the keyboard, Touch Bar, and the limited ports but honestly, I am very glad I did. You can find more in depth reviews of this laptop elsewhere, so I'll keep this short... The keyboard is... fine, but it is loud. Compared to the 2015 model, this keyboard is SIGNIFICANTLY louder. If that doesn't bother you, then the keyboard is perfectly fine. The keys traffic a lot less which takes some getting used to. I use a dell keyboard at work (I use a PC at work, for work reasons... -_- ) with much more travel, but even after using that for hours a day, and then using this keyboard after work, still feels completely normal and isn't a major change (except the sound). The Touch Bar is surprisingly helpful and convenient if you don't write it off immediately. I read tons of reviews on how you can do things quicker with keyboard shortcuts, but I find it just as useful and quick. The ports don't bother me either. Yea, it would be nice to have USB 3 ports and a MagSafe charging port but the ability to charge from any port is great. Purchasing a USB C hub is a MUST. Make sure you get a quality one and it supports everything you need (HDMI, USB 3, SD, MircoSD, etc.). My only complaint is the battery life. It's not terrible, but I do feel like it's slightly worse than my 2015 13". All in all, this is a great machine that looks and performs even better.
