Overview

Apples 2016 Macbook design truly set the stage for a timeless, premium design that would push even the most conservative shoppers to break the bank in pursuit of this beauty.

Is the Macbook Pro 2017 still good to buy?

“If you've been on the fence about getting a MacBook Pro, now's a better time than ever to get one. Apple's highest-end notebook crams a ton of power into a wonderfully slim design, and its 15-inch Retina display is a beautifully bright canvas for getting work done or just kicking back with movies. While not absolutely essential, the Touch Bar opens up a whole bunch of neat control options that make the Mac even more intuitive and fun to use.
