Review: MacBook Pro (2016) From £1,449 inc VAT •


pple gave its new MacBook Pro a thinner, sleeker case, which demanded a new, lower-travel keyboard, a new venting system, and even a smaller battery. But while we appreciate a Mac that’s smaller and lighter, we’d rather have a Mac that’s easier or just more fun to use. These 13- and 15in MacBook Pros with Apple’s new Touch Bar are both. The Touch Bar brings our favourite things about the iPad Pro’s software keyboard to the Mac. The amount of useful shortcuts it adds is ridiculous, and this is before most third-party developers have even had a chance to add Touch Bar support.
