Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch with Touch Bar Review and Specifications

May 1, 2020


The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (starts at $2,399; $2,799 as examined) is the closest you can get to hauling the power of an Apple desktop like the iMac throughout the office or in your carry-on bags. The 2016 redesign is thinner and lighter, with the excellent computing power, superb build quality, and great battery life that you expect from the Apple MacBook Pro. It’s also outfitted with Apple’s new Touch Bar with Touch ID Sensor, which gives you versatile function keys that help you interact with your apps much quickly. You will have to get used to that shallow keyboard and also the lack of USB 3.0 ports, that will most likely require dongles. The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch isn’t cheap (though many high-end laptops of this caliber have almost similar price tags). Overall, the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch is a high-end desktop-replacement laptop we would recommend the power users who do high-end graphic arts or anyone who wants the ultimate in a fast and future-minded large-screen laptop.
