1 x MacBook Pro 13-inch with Touch Bar: 2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i5, 256GB - Space Grey & Power Adapter
From the manufacturer
A touch of genius.
It’s faster and more powerful than before, yet remarkably thinner and lighter. It has the brightest, most colorful Mac notebook display ever. And it introduces 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. The new MacBook Pro is built on groundbreaking 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 for the first time, Touch ID is available on a Mac, enabling instant access to logins and fast, secure online purchases with Apple Pay.
A revolutionary new way to use your Mac.
Interacting with the new MacBook Pro is a better experience all around. The keyboard has been redesigned to include our new, second-generation butterfly mechanism — meticulously refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. And the Force Touch trackpad is significantly larger, giving your fingers more room to gesture and click.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra-versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved-up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging, and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40 Gbps of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. And both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with four ports, so you can do all that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always right side up.
Touch ID arrives on Mac.
Now you can unlock your Mac in an instant. Use Apple Pay to make secure online purchases. Quickly access system settings and locked notes. And even switch between users — all with the touch of a finger.
The Touch Bar can change how you experience the apps you use every day — including third-party apps. It’s a dynamic canvas that developers can use to add a new dimension to existing and future apps.
The brightest, most colorful Mac notebook display ever.
The new display in the MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features brighter LED backlighting and an increased contrast ratio, delivering deeper blacks and brighter whites. Its larger pixel aperture and variable refresh rate make it more power efficient than previous generations. And it’s the first Mac notebook to support wide color, for even more vibrant greens and reds. This ensures truer-to-life pictures with realistically vivid details, essential for graphic design, color grading, and editing.
The speakers have been totally redesigned to provide as much as twice the dynamic range and up to 58 percent more volume, with two and a half times louder bass for maximum boom. And they’re connected directly to system power, enabling up to three times more peak power. So they make MacBook Pro the perfect choice for mixing a track on the fly, editing video on location, or enjoying a movie on the go.

Really thin and light, that was the reason I never got a pro the last time as it was alot thicker and heavier back then
Really happy with this purchase and the touchbar is a novelty but it sure does look the part and try and have every excuse to use it, not very many apps compatible yet with it but i am sure the list will grow
As usual, this is way over-priced, and so are all the accessories, but luckily most of the adaptors and add-ons can now be purchased more cheaply from 3rd party suppliers.
Be very wary which seller you buy this from, I originally ordered a Macbook Pro from another seller on Amazon, who took ages to process my order, didn't have the best standard of English in their communications, refused to answer my questions on exactly which model it was (touch bar, processor, graphics, etc etc) and when I looked them up in Companies House, they were no more than a mobile phone repair and accessories shop. Not what I'd expect when buying an Apple product. So the order was cancelled, and I got this one fulfilled by Amazon - use the "other sellers" to find Amazon as the seller, they're not the default seller which I found rather surprising. But I got it from Amazon in the end, and even got the later model 2016 Macbook Pro with the touchbar and higher spec processor for not much more money. Check everything when you buy, read everything very carefully, especially the specifications, and look up the seller when spending this amount of money!
So I'm happy with it having had it a couple of days now, it's nice and fast, works with Lightroom and Photoshop perfectly and connects to my Canon DSLR without any fuss or drivers needed.
Battery life is good, as advertised about 6-10 hours on fairly heavy use playing music, editing photos, watching Youtube, and browsing fairly continuously. It also charges very quickly, and tells you roughly how long until it's going to be fully charged.
As everyone complains about, the ports are very limiting, this has 4 USB C ports, the cheaper models have less. It doesn't have a Thunderbolt port - I bought a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable thinking that was what I needed, but no it has to be USB-C. I've also had to buy some USB C-3 adaptors as there's still very few peripherals or adaptors supporting type C yet.
I've got it connected up to my HD tv via HDMI and have my audio going through that as well. I was particularly impressed with how it connected to my WDcloud backup NAS with no drivers needed, it was a breeze, however I've yet to get it able to perform scheduled backups. Manual backups were easy, I shall reserve judgement on how reliable this backup is and how easy it is to restore if and when (hopefully never) I have cause to use it.
The keyboard has a nice feel, and the touchpad is better than others I've used, however I still prefer a proper keyboard and mouse, so I bought the Magic keyboard and mouse. The Magic keyboard is not a full size one though, which is quite disappointing.
Get yourself a case! I'd only been using this for about an hour with it on my lap wearing non-studded jeans, and it already looked like it had scratches on it, along with several greasy finger marks, however they were just marks which I got rid of with some polishing using a spare camera lens cleaner I had.
Initial set up worked well, though I would've liked to have been able to connect to my WiFi using push button WPS as I couldn't at first find my WiFi password. What was a REAL pain, was setting up the App store to perform the necessary updates out of the box, you can't proceed until you've put your debit/credit card details and your address and everything into the App store payment screens. I don't want to give Apple my card details, why should I? This is a problem.
I connected my Epson WiFi printer/scanner up quickly and easily. It was also a breeze to migrate Lightroom and Photoshop over from my Windows PC by just signing into my Adobe account and installing them. One thing I couldn't do though was migrate my photos and catalogs from the PC very easily.
I use an Android phone, Google Pixel XL, so I'm very happy with the Google products for the Chrome browser (which imported all my settings, bookmarks, and passwords as soon as I signed in), email, maps, and all their other products. It was a breeze to change Chrome to be my default browser. I'm yet to work out how to link my Google email, contacts, diary, reminders, etc, to the included Apple products but that's ok, I have everything I need in the Chrome browser.
The touch-ID is useful, though it doesn't seem to work with many of the apps, including Apple's ones, and I can't get the keychain password app to do anything useful yet, I'm still having to put in passwords virtually everywhere. Luckily Chrome is good at remembering my passwords when browsing.
Overall? I really like this MacBook Pro 2016 13" TouchPad. There's a few things Apple still need to improve, such as making the touch-id more universal and providing WPS touchbutton WiFi authentication. I really don't like having to put my payment card details in to allow even just system updates to function.
