It’s razor thin, feather light, and even faster and more powerful than before. It has the brightest, most colourful Mac notebook display ever. And it features the Touch Bar — a Multi-Touch enabled strip of glass built into the keyboard for instant access to the tools you want, right when you want them. MacBook Pro is built on ground-breaking ideas. And it’s ready for yours. The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.2 It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools you already know how to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, and more. And now Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.

First of all, lets get the positives out of the way. I'll admit it is sleek, it is light, it is quiet, charges quickly and it functions exactly as it is supposed to. Is it more sleek, quiet and quick than a normal laptop for the same money? I doubt it. And if even so, not by much. But the negatives WAAAAY outweigh any positives.
One of the biggest issues is that it only has two USBc ports (if you are wondering what USBc is, it is the same ports that you plug the recharge lead into on most modern android phones). Two USB(c) ports is pretty bad for most people, especially if you like having things stored locally rather than having to rent cloud space (I object to paying a monthly subscription just to look at my own bloody pictures!). But I think we can all agree that we can get by begrudgingly with Two ports. Except that is not the case. Because Apple have decided that as USBc technology allows for large amounts of power to flow through the port, they will use the ports as battery connections too. A fantastic idea, I hear you poor deluded fools (who have not thought this through) cry! And I would probably agree with you if the thing had three or more ports, but no, it's only got two, and if you want to charge the bloody thing it means your down to just one! And yes, the bloody thing needs charging all the time if you want to actually do anything that requires processing power, or have the screen up to a usable brightness!
You will also be looking at paying out well over £200 in accessories too! You will need one of apple's godawful Magic Mice things at 70-odd pounds........FOR A BLOODY MOUSE. A mouse, I might add that is not very ergonomic and weighs a tonne by mouse standards. Don't get me wrong, it's got some semi-impressive gimmicks to it like the roller wheel that has been replaced by an invisible track-pad that does the same thing but with less control, and....umm....that's it. OK so 1 semi-impressive gimmick (I suspect that is the magic part, apart from all my money "magically" disappearing from my wallet and reappearing in the bank accounts of those undeserving scumbags at apple).
At this point I think it is only fair to mention that the in-built track pad on the macbook is very good, and is probably the best track pad I have ever used, but as we all know, a track pad is no replacement for a mouse (just try dragging a file from the far left of your screen to the far right in one go without dropping it in the wrong place using only a track pad, and you'll see what I mean).
But trust me, unfortunately you need the Magic Mouse. If you've got a mouse that you use for your current laptop it'll "sort of" work, but with enough small glitches and lags that you'll be wanting to throw it against the wall within 20 mins of starting to use it with the macbook.And if it is a mouse with a normal USB dongle, obviously it won't work as, remember, 2 X USBc only. So you'll have to buy a USB multi-adaptor. DON'T BUY THE APPLE ONE! there are many third party ones you can but with way more ports for less money, but I wouldn't spend less that £50 on it if you want it to work properly. Realistically though I reckon you're looking at about £70. You'll also need an external hard drive or two because the SSD on this baby is only about 250gb. I know, I know, solid state drives are expensive, but good, that's why apple use them but 250 gb of storage has not been nearly enough since 2012 at least! So that is another thing you'll need one of those USBc ports for unless you opt to buy one of those multi adaptor things I mentioned.
Which brings me to my next point. You can't really call this thing a laptop. Once again I know, I know, apple don't call it a laptop, or even a notebook, it's a Macbook. But as I am not an iTwunt, it's a bloody laptop, or a least supposed to be. Except you can't really use it on your lap, or on the go, because really you have to have all that s**t I've mentioned plugged into it, as well as being near a power supply which is not very convenient at all. You really have to have a surface like a desk or table, with a fair bit of room for all of your new, expensive, wholly-unecessary-if-you'd-thought-more-about-it-and-sensibly-decided-to-get-yourself-a-proper-laptop, accessories!
So to summarise; I hate this steaming pile of iCrap
Note - Older versions of the Macbook don't have most of these issues (certainly not the USB deal-breaker issues anyway) so if you have to buy a macbook, save some money and a shed-load of frustration and get one of those. I doubt you'd notice any difference in performance, but a massive difference in convenience/cost.
