Macbook 2017 model

Macbook 2017 model DEFAULT

The inch MacBook has certainly come a long way since its humble beginnings. What was once the budget alternative for the more powerful and more expensive MacBook Pro has evolved into one of Apple’s most svelte offerings to date. After a four-year hiatus, Apple reintroduced it in as Apple’s thinnest and lightest laptop, touting a inch chassis and a higher price. 

Its reinvention only established it as an ultrabook that pushed the limits of how thin one could go instead – an achievement that the MacBook () has proven to be more than just a fluke. This addition to the line brings back that svelte design alongside a few vital updates: namely, a stunning Retina display and even more powerful internals. Though unfortunately, it also comes with a higher price tag, putting it somewhere between the MacBook Air and the Touch Bar-less MacBook Pro in regards to price.

The inch MacBook () has become the go-to for those who place a premium on thin and light design, as well as want access to the Apple ecosystem. Even now that it’s been discontinued, it’s still sought after. Only now, you can have its svelte, brushed aluminum Apple ultrabook form factor at a much lower price than ever before.

Spec Sheet

Here is the inch Apple MacBook () configuration sent to TechRadar for review:

CPU: GHz Intel Core mY32 (dual-core, 4MB cache, up to GHz)
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics
RAM: 8GB LPDDR3 (1,MHz)
Screen: inch Retina (2, x 1,, ppi) LED (IPS, aspect ratio)
Storage: GB SSD (PCIe)
Ports: 1 x USB Type-C, mm headphone/mic jack
Connectivity: ac Wi-Fi; Bluetooth
Cameras: p FaceTime camera
Weight: lbs (kg)
Size: x x ~ inches ( x x ~mm; W x D x H)

Price and availability

Unfortunately, the MacBook is no longer available at Apple’s online store, on the account of it being discontinued. Luckily, you should still be able to find the MacBook we reviewed here from third-party sellers for $1, (£1,, AU$1,) or possibly less. That price tag should get you everything found under our hot pink spec sheet.

For now, should your lavish taste or exacting needs require a more powerful inch MacBook, there should still be more powerful configurations on hand. You’ll just have to look harder for them.

For example, you might be able to find a MacBook with an Intel Core iY54 and GB of SSD storage instead of the base model’s GB. It’s still going to be fanless, so it still wouldn’t be as powerful as something like the MacBook Pro, but it will definitely offer a boost in power. Just keep in mind that with great power comes great price tags, and this more powerful MacBook will cost $1, (£1,, AU$2,).

If you want to max out the Apple MacBook, it’ll set you back an exorbitant $1, (£1,, AU$2,) for an Intel Core iY75, 16GB of RAM and a GB PCIe SSD.

Keep in mind, though, that these processors are a bit out-of-date in , what with both 8th-generation and 9th-generation chips now powering many laptops. If you want the latest fanless silicon, the refreshed and cheaper Apple MacBook Air () might be a more ideal option for you.

If you’re shopping around for a Windows laptop with comparable specs, take a look at the Acer Swift 7, an Ultrabook that’s designed to compete with the inch MacBook. Currently, it starts out at $1, (£1,, about AU$1,) for a similar Intel Core i7 Y-series processor, but with 8GB RAM and GB SSD storage. You do get a Full HD, inch display, however.

On the Chrome OS side, there’s Google’s older flagship Chromebook, the Pixelbook, starting at $ (£, AU$) with a more powerful Intel Core i5 CPU and the same RAM, but half as much SSD space as the top-end MacBook.

Design

The Apple MacBook ’s look and feel hasn’t been altered much – if at all – over the model. That’s not automatically a bad thing. Coming in Space Gray, Gold and Rose Gold, the brushed aluminum feels just as cool and elegant as ever, which we appreciate.

The MacBook’s thin chassis and feathery weight is also as impressive as usual, impressive enough that its dimensions are one of its biggest selling points.

Although it must be said that an even thinner screen bezel or one extra USB-C port would have been amazing at this point.

One key advantage the MacBook has over the and models is the enhanced, second-generation butterfly switches that make up its new backlit keyboard. Travel isn’t any deeper, but feedback is more forceful, which allows for a typing experience that’s significantly more satisfying – not to mention, more comfortable.

The MacBook’s wide, glass-coated trackpad remains the same as last year’s, which just means it’s just as enjoyable to use as it’s ever been. Apple’s touch interface tech through both software and hardware stays practically unrivaled.

‘Practically’ being the operative word here, because Google may have already caught up to Apple with its Pixelbook. Frankly, the keyboard and trackpad on that thing are ones to be equaled.

Display and sound

It’s general knowledge by now that Apple has made a name for itself by designing superb displays – among other things, that is – and the inch MacBook’s display steadfastly follows this tradition, remaining unchanged since its release in Editing photos and tackling graphically intensive workloads looks flawless on that Retina display, even though it’s not exactly the sharpest screen in school anymore.

The MacBook’s aspect ratio, however, may just be uncommon enough to be infuriating sometimes – like while watching movies or editing images that are formatted to in Fullscreen mode, for example.

When it comes to sound quality, the MacBook can without a doubt pump out some loud tunes with its four stereo speakers near the hinge. However, like all notebooks with mere millimeters to work with as audio chambers, the sound can be a bit thin and tinny, with some channels in songs simply disappearing altogether. 

To be fair, you’re not going to get much better audio from any laptop near this thin. And, Apple may have been aware of this, since it still kept the headphone jack in the MacBook.

The MacBook Pro is a line of Macintoshnotebook computers introduced in January by Apple Inc. It is the higher-end model of the MacBook family, sitting above the consumer-focused MacBook Air, and is sold with and inch screens. inch and inch version were sold from April to June and January to November respectively.

The first generation MacBook Pro used the design of the PowerBook G4, but replaced the PowerPC G4 chips with Intel Coreprocessors, added a webcam, and introduced the MagSafe power connector. The inch model was introduced in January ; the inch model in April. Later revisions added Intel Core 2 Duo processors and LED-backlit displays.

The second generation model debuted in October in and inch variants, with a inch variant added in January Called the "unibody" model because its case was machined from a single piece of aluminum, it had a thinner flush display, a redesigned trackpad whose entire surface consisted of a single clickable button, and a redesigned keyboard. Updates brought Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and introduced Intel's Thunderbolt.

The third generation MacBook Pro was released in the inch in June , a inch model in October. It is thinner than its predecessor, made solid-state storage (SSD) standard, added HDMI, and included a high-resolution Retina display. It eliminated Ethernet and FireWire ports and the optical drive.

The fourth generation MacBook Pro, released in October , adopted USB-C for all data ports and power and included a shallower "butterfly"-mechanism keyboard. On all but the base model, the function keys were replaced with a touchscreen strip called the Touch Bar with a Touch ID sensor integrated into the power button.

A revision to the fourth generation MacBook Pro was released in November [3] It introduced the Magic Keyboard, which uses a scissor-switch mechanism. The initial inch model with a screen set in narrower bezels was followed by a inch model in May

Another revision to the fourth generation was released in November and is the first MacBook Pro to feature an Apple-designed system on a chip, the Apple M1.[4]

1st generation (Aluminum)[edit]

The MacBook Pro 15" in

The original inch MacBook Pro was announced on January 10, , by Steve Jobs at the Macworld Conference & Expo.[5] The inch model was unveiled on April 24, [6] The first design was largely a carryover from the PowerBook G4, but uses Intel CoreCPUs instead of PowerPC G4 chips.[7] The inch MacBook Pro weighs the same as the inch aluminum PowerBook G4, but is inches (&#;cm) deeper, inches (&#;cm) wider, and inches (&#;cm) thinner.[8] Other changes from the PowerBook include a built-in iSightwebcam and the inclusion of MagSafe, a magnetic power connector designed to detach easily when yanked. These features were later brought over to the MacBook. The optical drive was reduced in size in order to fit into the slimmer MacBook Pro, hence it runs slower than the optical drive in the PowerBook G4 and cannot write to dual-layer DVDs.[7][9]

Both the original and inch model MacBook Pro computers come with ExpressCard/34 slots, which replace the PC Card slots found in the PowerBook G4. All first-generation inch models have two USB ports and one FireWire port,[10] while the inch models have three USB ports as well as one FireWire port.[11] When first introduced, the MacBook Pro did not come with FireWire or S-Video ports,[8][10] although FireWire was added in the next inch model revision[12] and is present in every version of the inch design.[11] S-Video capability can be attained through the use of a DVI to S-Video adapter.[8] External displays with up to a  ×  pixel resolution are supported through a dual-link DVI port.[13] All models include a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port, Bluetooth , and a/b/g.[10][11] Later models include support for the draft specification of n[14] and Bluetooth

Updates[edit]

Apple refreshed the entire MacBook Pro line on October 24, , to include Intel Core 2 Duo processors which was the first MacBook Pro model to be 64 bit.[12] Memory capacity was doubled for each model, to 1 GB on the low-end inch and 2 GB for the high-end and inch models.[12]FireWire was added to the inch models. Hard drive capacity was increased, although video card options stayed the same.[12] The MacBook Pro line received a second update on June 5, , with new NvidiaGeforceM GT video cards and faster processor options.[15][16]LED backlighting was added to the inch model's screen, and its weight was reduced from pounds (&#;kg) to pounds (&#;kg).[16] Furthermore, the speed of the front-side bus was increased from to MHz. On November 1, , Apple added the option of a GHz Santa Rosa platform Core 2 Duo CPU as well as reconfigured hard drive options.[16]

First-generation inch MacBook Pro

On February 26, , the MacBook Pro line was updated once more.[17][18]LED backlighting was added as an option for the inch model.[17] Processors were updated to "Penryn" cores, which are built on the 45 nm process (65 nm "Merom" cores were previously used), and hard drive and memory capacities were increased.[17] Multi-touch capabilities, first introduced with the MacBook Air earlier that year, were brought over to the MacBook Pro's trackpad.[17] When the inch unibody MacBook Pro was introduced on October 14, , the pre-unibody model with the same screen size was discontinued, while the inch pre-unibody model continued to be sold.[19] The original case design was discontinued on January 6, , when the inch MacBook Pro was also updated with unibody construction.[20]

Reception[edit]

Some reviewers applauded the MacBook Pro for its doubling or tripling the speed of the PowerBook G4 in some areas.[7] For example, the 3D rendering program Cinema 4D XL was times as fast ( times faster),[7] and its boot-up time was more than twice as quick.[8] The MacBook Pro generally outperformed the PowerBook G4 in performance analyzer utility tests XBench and Cinebench.[8] Reviewers lauded the screen's maximum brightness, 67% brighter than the PowerBook G4; the excellent horizontal viewing angles; the matte options; and the bright, crisp, and true colors.[9] Although the screen offered fewer vertical pixels ( ×  in the MacBook Pro instead of  ×  in the PowerBook), one reviewer called the screen "nothing less than stellar".[8] Reviewers praised the new MagSafe power adapter,[7] although one reviewer said it disconnected too easily in some instances.[8] They also praised the backlit keyboard, large trackpad, and virtually silent operation of the machine.[7][9] The new notebook also offered better wireless performance.

One reviewer criticized the decision to underclock the ATI Mobility Radeon X graphics card by about 30% its original speed.[9] The notebook was also noted for running hot.[7][9] Users complained that upgrading system memory was harder than in older Apple notebooks.[8] Since the dimensions for the inch MacBook Pro were tweaked slightly from the inch PowerBook G4, older accessories such as notebook sleeves did not work with the new models.[8] Some users noted a slight flickering when the screen was on lower brightness settings.[8] Apple increased the battery capacity by 10&#;Wh, going from 50 in the PowerBook G4 to 60,[8] but the more powerful Core Duo CPU required more power.[8] Battery life therefore remained about the same as in previous models, at three-plus hours.[8]

– model GPU problems[edit]

Both 15" and 17" models of the MacBook Pro built from early (15") / late (17") using the M GT chip exhibited severe GPU failures where the GPU die would reportedly detach from chip, or the chip detach from the logic board.[21] The issue has been mitigated by some users by keeping the notebook cooler by means of less intensive use or alternative fan settings. Apple initially ignored reports, before admitting to the fault and replacing logic boards free of charge for up to 4 years after the purchase date.[22] NVIDIA also confirmed the issue, and previously manufactured replacement GPUs, which some users have replaced themselves.[23]

2nd generation (Unibody)[edit]

MacBook Pro Unibody 15 inch

On October 14, , in a press event at company headquarters, Apple officials announced a new inch MacBook Pro featuring a "precision aluminum unibody enclosure" and tapered sides similar to those of the MacBook Air.[35][36] Designers shifted the MacBook Pro's ports to the left side of the case, and moved the optical disc drive slot from the front to the right side, similar to the MacBook. The new MacBook Pro computers had two video cards that the user could switch between: the NvidiaGeForceM GT with either or MB[37] of dedicated memory and a GeForce M with MB of shared system memory.[35] Although the FireWire port was removed, the FireWire port remained. The DVI port was replaced with a Mini DisplayPort receptacle.[35] The original unibody MacBook Pro came with a user-removable battery; Apple claimed five hours of use,[35] with one reviewer reporting results closer to four hours on a continuous video battery stress test.[38] Apple said that the battery would hold 80% of its charge after recharges.[39]

Design[edit]

The unibody-construction MacBook Pro largely follows the styling of the original aluminum iMac and the MacBook Air and is slightly thinner than its predecessor, albeit wider and deeper due to the widescreen display.[35] The screen is high-gloss, covered by an edge-to-edge reflective glass finish, while an anti-glare matte option is available in the and inch models in which the glass panel is removed.[40] The entire trackpad is usable and acts as a clickable button.[40] The trackpad is also larger than that of the first generation, giving more room for scrolling and multi-touch gestures.[40] When the line was updated in April , inertial scrolling was added, making the scrolling experience much like that of the iPhone and iPad.[41][42][43] The keys, which are still backlit, are now identical to those of Apple's now-standard sunken keyboard with separated black keys.[41] The physical screen release latch from the previous generation is replaced with a magnetic one.

Updates[edit]

A size comparison of the unibody line of MacBook Pro notebooks

During the MacWorld Expo keynote on January 6, , Phil Schiller announced a inch MacBook Pro with unibody construction. This version diverged from its inch sibling with an anti-glare "matte" screen option (with the glossy finish standard) and a non user-removable lithium polymer battery.[44] Instead of traditional round cells inside the casing, the lithium-ion polymer batteries are shaped and fitted into each notebook to maximally utilize space. Adaptive charging, which uses a chip to optimize the charge flow to reduce wear and tear, extends the battery's overall life.[44] Battery life for the inch version is quoted at eight hours, with 80 percent of this charge remaining after 1, charge-discharge cycles.[44]

At Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 8, , it was announced that the inch unibody MacBook would be upgraded and re-branded as a MacBook Pro,[45] leaving only the white polycarbonate MacBook in the MacBook line.[46] It was also announced that the entire MacBook Pro line would use the non user-removable battery first introduced in the inch MacBook Pro.[47] The updated MacBook Pro and the inch would each have up to a claimed 7 hours of battery life, while the inch would keep its 8-hour capacity.[45][47] Some sources even reported up to eight hours of battery life for the and inch MacBook Pro computers during casual use,[48] while others reported around six hours.[40] Like the inch MacBook Pro, Apple claims that they will last around 1, charge cycles while still containing 80% of their capacity.[49] Graphics card options stayed the same from the previous release, although the inch[50] and the base model inch, came with only the GeForce M GPU.[51] The screens were also improved, gaining a claimed 60 percent greater color gamut.[50][51] All of these mid models also included a FireWire port and all except the inch models would receive an SD card slot.[36] The inch model would retain its ExpressCard/34 slot.[47] For the inch MacBook Pro, the Kensington lock slot was moved to the right side of the chassis.[52] In August , Apple extended the "matte" anti-glare display option to the inch MacBook Pro.[53]

On April 13, ,[54]Intel Core i5 and Core i7CPUs were introduced in the and inch models, while the inch retained the Core 2 Duo with a speed increase.[54] The power brick was redesigned[41] and a high-resolution display (of  × ) was announced as an option for the inch models.[42] The inch gained an integrated NvidiaGeForceMgraphics processing unit (GPU) with MB of shared memory, while the and inch models were upgraded to the GeForce GT M, with either or MB of dedicated memory.[54] The and inch models also have an integrated Intel GPU that is built into the Core i5 and i7 processors.[54] The inch model also gained pounds (&#;kg).[42] Save for a third USB slot, all the ports on the inch MacBook Pro are the same in type and number as on the inch version.[55] All models come with 4 GB of system memory that is upgradeable to 8 GB.[54] Battery life was also extended further in this update, to an estimated 10 hours for the inch and 8–9 hours on the and inch MacBook Pro computers.[54] This was achieved through both greater power efficiency and adding more battery capacity.[54] One reviewer reported about 6 hours of battery life through a continuous video battery stress test in the inch[43] and another, who called the battery life "unbeatable", reported nearer to 8 in the inch through their "highly demanding battery drain test".[41]

Thunderbolt technology, Sandy Bridge dual-core Intel Core i5 and i7 (on the inch model) or quad-core i7 (on the and inch models) processors, and a high definitionFaceTime camera were added on February 24, Intel HD Graphics come integrated with the CPU, while the and inch models also utilize AMD Radeon HD M and Radeon HD M graphics cards. Later editions of these models, following the release of OS X Lion, replaced the Expose (F3) key with a Mission Control key, and the Dashboard (F4) key with a Launchpad key. The chassis bottoms are also engraved differently from the models.[56] The Thunderbolt serial bus platform can achieve speeds of up to 10 Gbit/s,[57] which is up to twice as fast as the USB specification, 20 times faster than the USB specification, and up to 12 times faster than FireWire [58] Apple says that Thunderbolt can be used to drive displays or to transfer large quantities of data in a short amount of time.[58]

On June 11, , Apple showcased its upgraded Mac notebooks, OS X Mountain Lion, and iOS 6 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Francisco.[59] The new MacBook Pro models were updated with Ivy Bridge processors and USB ports, and the default RAM on premium models was increased to 8 GB.[60] Following this announcement, the inch model was discontinued.[citation needed] After a media event on October 22, , Apple discontinued all second-generation MacBook Pro computers except for the entry-level GHz inch model.[61] Apple discontinued the inch second-generation MacBook Pro on October 27, Prior to its discontinuation it was Apple's only product to still include an optical drive and a FireWire port, and only notebook with a hard disk drive and Ethernet port.[62]

Reception[edit]

Some reviewers praised the new notebook's performance and compact size,[38] the quality of the screen, and sturdy unibody build,[38] which allowed easier upgrading of internal components as compared to the original models.[38] Some reviewers also noted that the new MacBook Pro ran more quietly and at cooler temperatures than first-generation machines.[38] Others, however, criticized the amount of heat generated by the new design.[63][64]

The Reviewers lamented the loss of a matte screen option for the unibody MacBook Pro, noting the reflectiveness of the screen in sunlight, even when its brightness was turned all the way up.[38]CNET's Dan Ackerman commented of the mid models: "According to Apple, the new display offers a wider color gamut, and the screen certainly looks bright and colorful, but we wish the same matte-screen option offered on the inch MacBook Pro was available across the line While the LED screen means a thinner lid and some battery life benefits, the edge-to-edge glass covering the entire display panel grabs stray light rays with ease, making the glossy screen hard to see in some lighting conditions."[40] By , matte screens were offered for both the 15" and 17" models. Furthermore, the addition of Mini DisplayPort instead of the more popular HDMI was criticized.[38] The relatively low number of ports and lower end technical specifications when compared to similarly priced laptops from other brands were also bemoaned.[38]

Laptop Magazine's Michael Prospero praised the inch model's display, calling it "bright and crisp". He further commented, "While reflections from the glossy display weren't overwhelming, it's also nice to know there's an antiglare option—though only for the higher resolution display. Still, colors were bright, blacks were deep and dark, and viewing angles were excellent both vertically and horizontally." He also lauded the quality of the iSight webcam, the responsiveness of the trackpad, the microphone and speakers, as well as the performance of the new CPUs for the 15" model and the long battery life. Complaints included the price of the notebook, the low number of USB ports, and the lack of HDMI.[42]

CNET praised the automatic graphics switching features of the and inch models as well as the graphics cards themselves. Acclaim was also given to the Core i5 and i7 CPUs, the multi-touch trackpad, and the addition of audio capabilities to the Mini DisplayPort video output.[43] They also called for the addition of HDMI and the Blu-rayoptical disc format, saying that most other computers in the MacBook Pro's price range possessed these features.[43] CNET also criticized the option of a higher-resolution screen in the inch model, saying that "the higher-resolution screen should be included by default."[43]

Since the RAM and the hard drive on some generations of MacBook Pro are user-serviceable parts, there are aftermarket modifications to enhance the system with up to 16 GB of DDR RAM (although maximum capacity and frequency depend on the hardware in question), RPM hard drives or third-party SSDs. A third-party caddy was also made, allowing the internal optical drive to be replaced with a second internal SATA inch hard drive.

Early and Late model GPU problems[edit]

Early and Late models with a GPU; 15" & 17"; reportedly suffer from manufacturing problems leading to overheating, graphical problem, and eventually complete GPU and logic board failure. A similar but nonidentical problem affected iMac GPUs which were later recalled by Apple.[95] The problem was covered by many articles in Mac-focused magazines, starting late throughout [96][97][98][99] In August the law firm Whitfield Bryson & Mason LLP had begun investigating the problem to determine if any legal claim exists.[] On October 28, , the firm announced that it has filed a class-action lawsuit in a California federal court against Apple. The lawsuit will cover residents residing in both California and Florida who have purchased a MacBook Pro notebook with an AMD graphics card. The firm is also investigating similar cases across the United States.[] On February 20, , Apple instituted the "MacBook Pro Repair Extension Program for Video Issues". This "will repair affected MacBook Pro systems, free of charge". The program covered affected MacBook Pro models until December 31, or four years from original date of sale.[]

3rd generation (Retina)[edit]

MacBook Pro (Retina, inch, Mid)

On June 11, , at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, Apple introduced the third generation MacBook Pro, marketed as the "MacBook Pro with Retina display" to differentiate it from the previous model.[59] The new model includes Intel's third-generation Core i7 processors (Ivy Bridge microarchitecture), USB , and a high-resolution " IPS × Retina Display.[60] Other new or changed features include a second Thunderbolt port, an HDMI port, and a thinner MagSafe port, dubbed the "MagSafe 2".[] The MacBook Pro with Retina display was one of only two Macs that feature a built-in HDMI port (the other being the Mac Mini). Apple introduced a inch version on October 23, with specifications similar but slightly inferior to the inch version's, such as less powerful processors.[]

The new models omit Ethernet and FireWire ports, though Apple offers Thunderbolt adapters for both interfaces.[] They also omit a SuperDrive, making the inch model Apple's first professional notebook since the PowerBook c to ship without a built-in optical drive.[] Instead of a hard disk drive, the new models ship with a solid state drive housed in a proprietary flash module design rather than a inch notebook drive. Apple also claims improved speakers and microphones and a new system for cooling the notebook with improved fans.[] The new case design does not have a Kensington lock slot, so alternative products are required to physically secure the computer.[]

The Retina models also have fewer user-accessible upgrade or replacement options than previous MacBooks. Unlike in previous generations, the memory is soldered onto the logic board and is therefore not upgradable. The solid state drive is not soldered and can be replaced by users, although it has a proprietary connector and form factor.[] The battery is glued into place; attempts to remove it may destroy the battery and/or trackpad.[] The entire case uses proprietary pentalobe screws and cannot be disassembled with standard tools. While the battery is glued in, recycling companies have stated that the design is only "mildly inconvenient" and does not hamper the recycling process.[] In any case, Apple offers a free recycling service via any of their stores and has no problem with separating the materials.

On February 13, , Apple announced updated prices and processors and increased the memory of the high-end inch model to 16 GB.[]

On October 22, , Apple updated the line with Intel's Haswell processors and Iris Graphics, ac Wi-Fi, Thunderbolt 2, and PCIe-based flash storage.[] The chassis of the inch version was slightly slimmed to inches (18&#;mm) to match the inch model. The lower-end inch model only included integrated graphics while the higher-end model continued to include a discrete Nvidia graphics card in addition to integrated graphics.[] Support for 4K video output via HDMI was added but limited the maximum number of external displays from three to two.[] On July 29, Apple announced new models with updated prices and processors.[]

On March 9, , the inch model was updated with Intel Broadwell processors, Iris graphics, faster flash storage (based on PCIe × 4 technology), faster RAM (upgraded from MHZ to MHZ), increased battery life (extended to 10 hours), and a Force Touch trackpad.[][] On May 19, , inch model added Force Touch and changed the GPU to AMD Radeon R9 MX, SSD based on PCIe × 4 technology, the battery life was extended to 9 hours, and the rest of the configuration remained unchanged.[][] The higher-end inch model also added support for dual-cable output to  ×  displays.[] The inch models were released with the same Intel Haswell processors and Iris Pro graphics as the models due to a delay in shipment of newer Broadwell quad-core processors.[] Apple continued to sell the inch model until July []

Design[edit]

The most apparent body changes are a thinner chassis and a display with a redesigned hinge and thinner bezel, and the removal of the internal optical drive and the battery indicator button and light on the side of the chassis. The power button is moved from the upper right corner of the chassis onto the keyboard, taking the place of the optical disc eject button.[] At inches (18&#;mm) thick, the inch model is 25% thinner than its predecessor. The model name is no longer placed at the bottom of the screen bezel; instead, it is found on the underside of the chassis, similar to an iOS device. It is the first Macintosh notebook to not have its model name visible during normal use, as every prior notebook had its model name on the screen bezel or keyboard.[]

Reception[edit]

The Retina MacBook Pro received positive reviews of the Retina Display, flash storage and power. It was criticized, however, for its high price and lack of an Ethernet port and optical drive. Roman Loyola of Macworld said that the Retina MacBook Pro was "groundbreaking" and made people "rethink how they use technology". He praised the inclusion of USB and the slimmer body.[]Dan Ackerman of CNET commented "I've previously called the inch MacBook Pro one of the most universally useful all-around laptops you can buy. This new version adds to that with HDMI, faster ports, and more portability. But it also subtracts from that with its exclusion of an optical drive and Ethernet port, plus its very high starting price. The Pro and Retina Pro are clearly two laptops designed for two different users, and with the exception of all-day commuters who need something closer to a MacBook Air or ultrabook, one of the two branches of the MacBook Pro family tree is still probably the most universally useful laptop you can buy."[]

The Retina MacBook line has no internal optical drives. External drives such as Apple's SuperDrive(pictured) must be used instead.

Joel Santo Domingo of PC Magazine gave the MacBook Pro an "Editor's Choice" rating. He praised its "brilliant Retina display", the thin design, port selection and speedy storage, and highlighted the expandability via Thunderbolt ports which support up to seven devices each.[]David Pogue of The New York Times praised the inch model's screen, keyboard, sound, start-up time, cosmetics, battery life, storage, and RAM capacity. They criticized the lack of a SuperDrive, pricing, and the MagSafe 2 power connector's lack of backwards compatibility with the older MagSafe design.[]

The Retina Display on the MacBook Pro have been criticized for "image retention", specifically for displays manufactured by LG.[][] Many users also complained the anti-reflective coating on their screens could wear off easily, which is an issue known as "staingate".[]

In , one year after the introduction of the fourth generation of the MacBook Pro, the original lead developer of Tumblr Marco Arment wrote an evocative article in which he declared the Retina MacBook Pro the best laptop ever made.[] The sentiment was shared by many users of various social platforms.[]

Repairability and environmental concerns[edit]

Apple was criticized for gluing the battery into the case, making it harder to be recycled (ease of disassembly is an EPEAT criterion). Greenpeace spokesman Casey Harrell said Apple "has pitted design against the environment—and chosen design. They're making a big bet that people don't care, but recycling is a big issue."[]Wired also criticized Apple's recyclability claims: "[t]he design may well be comprised of 'highly recyclable aluminum and glass'—but my friends in the electronics recycling industry tell me they have no way of recycling aluminum that has glass glued to it like Apple did with both this machine and the recent iPad."[]

Battery problems[edit]

In June , Apple announced a worldwide recall for certain 15" MacBook Pro computers due to a potential overheating and fire-safety risk. Affected units were sold primarily between September and February and recall eligibility is determined by the product serial number. It was determined that , units were affected with reports of minor burns, smoke inhalation and property damage. The company asked customers to stop using their MacBook Pro computers until they could be repaired with replacement batteries.[][][]

In September , India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation said MacBook Pro computers could dangerously overheat, leading the national carrier Air India to ban the model on its flights.[]

The inch late MacBook Pro
Teardown of a MacBook Pro (16 inch) showing the internal parts

Apple unveiled fourth generation and inch MacBook Pro models during a press event at their headquarters on October 27, All models, except for the baseline inch model, introduced the Touch Bar, a multi-touch enabled OLED strip built into the top of the keyboard in place of the function keys. The Touch Bar models also include a sapphire-glass covered Touch ID sensor at the right end of the Touch Bar which doubles as a power button. The models also introduce a "second-generation" butterfly mechanism keyboard that provided more travel than the first iteration implemented on the Retina MacBook. The inch model has a trackpad that is 46% larger than its predecessor while the inch model has a trackpad twice as large as the prior generation.

All ports have been replaced with either two or four combination Thunderbolt 3 ports that support USB-C Gen 2 and dual DisplayPort signals,[] any of which can be used for charging.[] The MacBook Pro is incompatible with some older Thunderbolt 3 certified peripherals,[][] including Intel's own reference design for Thunderbolt 3 devices.[] Furthermore, macOS on MacBook Pro blocks certain classes of Thunderbolt 3 compatible devices from working by blacklisting them.[] Support for Thunderbolt 3 external graphics processing units (eGPU) was added in macOS High Sierra [] Devices using HDMI, previous generation Thunderbolt, and USB will require an adapter to connect to the MacBook Pro.[][][] The models come with a mm headphone jack, although TOSLINK functionality of older generation MacBook Pro computers has been removed.

Other updates to the MacBook Pro include dual- and quad-core Intel"Skylake" Core i5 and i7 processors, improved graphics, and displays that offer a 25% wider color gamut, 67% more brightness, and 67% more contrast. All versions are able to output to a 5K display, with the inch models capable of two. The inch models include a discrete Radeon Pro , or graphics card in addition to the integrated Intel graphics. Additionally, Apple introduced a cheaper lower-end inch model which lacks the Touch Bar in favor of function keys, and has only two USB-C ports. The flash storage in the Touch Bar models is soldered to the logic board and is not upgradeable, while in the inch model without Touch Bar, it is removable, but difficult to replace, as it is a proprietary format of SSD storage.[][]

On June 5, , Apple updated the line with Intel Kaby Lake processors and newer graphics cards. Additionally, the inch model now comes with a &#;GB[a] storage option, down from the base &#;GB[a] storage.[] New symbols are introduced to the control and option keys. On July 12, , Apple updated the Touch Bar models with Intel Coffee Lake quad-core processors in inch models and six-core processors in inch models, updated graphics cards, improved third-generation butterfly keyboards, Bluetooth 5, T2 SoC Chip, True Tone display technology, and larger capacity batteries. The inch model can also be configured with up to 4&#;TB[a] of storage, 32 GB of DDR4 memory and a Core i9 processor.[] In late November the higher-end inch model could be configured with Radeon Pro Vega graphics. On May 21, Apple announced updated Touch Bar models with newer processors, with an eight-core Core i9 standard for the higher-end inch model, and an updated keyboard manufactured with "new materials" across the line.[] On July 9, Apple updated the inch model with two Thunderbolt ports with newer quad-core 8th-generation processors and Intel Iris Plus graphics, True Tone display technology, and replaced the function keys with the Touch Bar.[]macOS Catalina added support for Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, and HDR10 on and newer models.[] macOS Catalina added support for x output on inch and newer models to run the Pro Display XDR at full resolution.[]

The MacBook Pro is the final model that can be downgraded from macOS Catalina to macOS Mojave ; models cannot. Mojave is the final MacOS operating system to support bit applications such as Microsoft Office for Mac bit applications will fail to run on Catalina or later iterations of the Mac operating system, as they only support bit applications.

Design and usability[edit]

The fourth generation MacBook Pro follows the design of the previous two generations with an all-metal unibody enclosure and separated black keys. A few apparent design changes are a thinner chassis, thinner screen bezel, larger trackpad, the OLED Touch Bar, and shallower butterfly mechanism keyboard with less key separation than the previous models. The speakers grilles have been relocated to the sides of the keyboard on the inch variant. Tear downs show that the speaker grilles on the inch model with Touch Bar are "largely cosmetic", and that sound output mostly comes through the side vents.[] The fourth generation MacBook Pro comes in two finishes, the traditional silver color and a darker "space gray" color. The MacBook Pro model name returns to the bottom of the screen bezel in Apple's San Francisco font after being absent from the second generation with Retina display. As with the Retina MacBook, the new models replace the backlit white Apple logo on the rear of the screen, a feature dating back to the PowerBook G3, with a glossy black opaque version.[]

MagSafe, a magnetic charging connector, has been replaced with USB-C charging.[] Unlike MagSafe, which provided an indicator light within the user's field of view to indicate the device's charging status, the USB-C charger has no visual indicator. Instead, the MacBook Pro emits a chime when connected to power.[] The Macintosh startup chime that has been used since the first Macintosh in is now disabled by default. The notebook now boots automatically when the lid is opened.[]

Battery life[edit]

The battery life of the new models also received mixed reception, with outlets reporting inconsistent battery life and inaccurate estimates of time remaining on battery by the operating system. After the latter reports, Apple used a macOS update to hide the display of estimated battery time.[][]Consumer Reports did not initially recommend the MacBook Pro models, citing inconsistent and unpredictable battery life in its lab testing (which involves the consecutive loading of multiple websites). However, Apple and Consumer Reports found that the results had been affected by a bug caused by disabling caching in Safari's developer tools. Consumer Reports performed the tests again with a patched macOS, and retracted its original assessment.[][]

Repairability[edit]

iFixit scored the models 1 out of 10 for repairability, noting that memory, the processor, and flash storage are soldered to the logic board, while the battery is glued to the case. The entire assembly uses proprietary pentalobe screws and cannot be disassembled with standard tools.[]

Keyboard reliability[edit]

A report by AppleInsider has claimed that the updated butterfly keyboard fails twice as often as previous models, often due to particles stuck beneath the keys.[] Repairs for stuck keys have been estimated to cost more than $[] In May , two class action lawsuits were filed against Apple regarding the keyboard problem; one alleged a "constant threat of nonresponsive keys and accompanying keyboard failure" and accusing Apple of not alerting consumers to the problem.[][] In June , Apple announced a Service Program to "service eligible MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards, free of charge".[] The models added a membrane underneath keys to prevent malfunction from dust.[] As of early , there were reports of problems with the same type of keyboards in the MacBook Air.[][] In May , Apple modified the keyboard for the fourth time and promised that any MacBook keyboard with butterfly switches will be repaired or replaced free during four years after the date of sale.[]

Thermal throttling[edit]

PC Magazine said "the Core i9 processor Apple chose to use inside the MacBook Pro (iK) has a base clock frequency of GHz, which is capable of bursting up to GHz when necessary. However, testing carried out by YouTuber Dave Lee showed that the Core i9 couldn't even maintain GHz, let alone GHz. And it ended up running at GHz due to the heat generated inside the chassis forcing it to throttle. Lee found the i9 MacBook Pro was slower than the MacBook Pro and stated, "This isn't a problem with Intel's Core i9, it's Apple's thermal solution."[] When Lee put the i9 MacBook Pro inside a freezer, the render times were over 30% faster.[]

On July 24, , Apple released a software fix for the new MacBook Pro computers which addressed the thermal throttling problem. Apple said "there is a missing digital key in the firmware that impacts the thermal management system and could drive clock speeds down under heavy thermal loads on the new MacBook Pro".[]

Other problems[edit]

A "limited number" of inch MacBook Pro units without Touch Bar, manufactured between October and October , saw the built-in battery swell. Apple created a free replacement program for eligible units.[]

A "limited number" of and GB solid-state drives used in inch MacBook Pro (non-Touch Bar) units can lose data and fail. inch MacBook Pro units with affected drives were sold between June and June This resulted in Apple launching a repair program for those affected – the repair involves the update of firmware.[]

Some users are reporting kernel panics on models, because of the T2 chip. Apple is already aware of the problem and performing an investigation.[] There are also user reports about the speaker crackling problems on the models.[]

Users have reported malfunctioning display cables, causing uneven lighting at the bottom of the screen and ultimately display failure. Customers of Apple have named this issue "Flexgate". The problem has been tracked to a cable, stressed from opening and closing the notebook. The entire display needs to be replaced in affected units.[] In May Apple initiated a program to replace the display on affected inch models made in for free, and the cable on the models and onwards was made 2 mm longer than on prior models, thus reducing the likelihood of display failure .[] Apple has been criticized for not extending the replacement program to the inch models which are also affected by this issue.[][]

Reception[edit]

The MacBook Pro was criticized for needing hubs or dongles, shown, for USB-A or SD card connections.

The fourth-generation MacBook Pro received mixed reviews. The display, build quality, and audio quality were praised but many complaints went toward the keyboard butterfly switch, the touch bar not being useful in many applications due to a lack of development for it, and the lack of any USB-A ports, HDMI port or an SD card slot.

Ars Technica noted that the second-generation keyboard with firm keys was a "drastic departure" from previous Retina MacBook keyboards. It further noted that resting palms may brush the trackpad occasionally causing inadvertent cursor jumps onscreen as the notebook interprets this as input, without one's hands or wrists actually resting on it.[] Also noted was an increase of bandwidth and approximately 40 percent increased read speed of the flash storage.[]Engadget praised the thinner, lighter design, improved display and audio, and increased speed of the graphics and flash storage, but criticized the lack of ports and price.[]Wired praised the display, calling it "the best laptop display I've ever seen", as well as praising the Touch Bar, though it criticized the need of adapters for many common connectors.[] Likewise, The Verge concluded that "using [the new MacBook] is alienating to anyone living in the present. I agree with Apple's vision of the future. I'm just not buying it today."[]

Engadget voiced their concerns that "by doing things like removing full-sized USB ports, the memory card reader and even the Function row, Apple seems to have forgotten how many of us actually work".[] Heavy keyboard users criticized the Touch Bar, noting that command-line tools like Vim rely on keyboard usage, and the Touch Bar does not provide the tactile feedback necessary for "blind" usage of Function keys.[] Miriam Nielsen from The Verge said about the Touch Bar experience: "When I tried to intentionally use the Touch Bar, I felt like a kid learning how to type again. I had to keep looking down at the bar instead of looking at the images I was actually trying to edit."[] She also pointed out that after learning the Touch Bar one cannot work as efficiently on any other computer. Developers have their share of headaches because they cannot rely on the Touch Bar being present on every machine that runs their software. Even if Apple makes the Touch Bar an integral part of macOS, it will take "many years" for it to become ubiquitous, in the meantime, anything in the Bar needs to be available through another part of the interface.[]

Other items of critique were non-compatibility between Thunderbolt 2 and 3 devices, frequently unpleasant fan whine noises in idle CPU states on the larger screen (15") models were reported, where the two integrated fans run all the time by default.[citation needed] The coprocessor powering the touch bar and higher TDP of the stronger CPU models are responsible for this behavior.

In the Touch Bar caused furore amongst American state bars because of concerns that the predictive text could be used to cheat on bar exams. The responses varied state by state: New York State Bar Association outright banned the use of the MacBook Pro on bar exams, anyone coming to take examinations with one would have to write their answers on paper, while North Carolina Bar Association allowed students to take the state bar exam with the computer once a proctor has verified that the predictive text feature has been disabled.[][]

Apple Macbook Air

  • VIKRAM SISODIA on Flipkart.com |

    Simply apple at it&#;s best. What a piece of engineering this products is, super compact display, really lite as air. Really deserves the title macbook air. Using the macbook since 6 months no issues so far.

  • Adithya Gururam on Flipkart.com |

    Laptop has lesser specifications than windows of this price range, but Mac is Mac. Apple customer service is awesome. But please be aware that you&#;ll get early version. Not the newest version of this laptop

  • Pulkit Mehta on Flipkart.com |

    Excellent processing, elegant design. Before purchasing i was worried about screen but honestly it didnt disappoint me! Excellent colors with fluid display. Doesn&#;t heat at all, metal body remains cool in air conditioned room, wonderful battery life.

  • Manpreet Bhalla on Flipkart.com |

    Thanks to the awesome offers at Flipkart, I purchased this laptop for just Rs. 42k. It is every penny worth - fast, good battery life, light in weight, and looks durable. The only glitch I feel is that it is short of storage space - has just GB. But, that can be taken care of by using Transcend&#;s jet drive.

  • Flipkart Customer on Flipkart.com |

    Its no doubt that Apple does everything with distinct style. So was this product. Everything seems perfect w.r.t. alternatives presently in the market. Howsoever, there were some lacunae - Attaching power button on mainstream keyboard seems to take away the elegant and distinct character which it gave when was separately placed like in older laptops. Also GB would hurt most of us given the rapid evolving technology and consequent need for greater storage space. (I bought it as it was under an offer which would even shake faith of Apple Haters). My recommendation would be to let your purse shed a little bit more and buy minimum GB model.

  • Mohsin Basharat on Flipkart.com |

    Absolutely loving to own a MacBook Air. A decent purchase although the delivery was pathetic which isn&#;t improving for some cities like mine from past 6 years of my experience with Flipkart. It&#;s worth every penny, switching from windows is lil bit hassle but u get in love with mac with each passing day. Coming to the power of machine, it&#;s above every windows powered machine with i5 processor. The processing of apps is quite faster due to the ssd and impressive architecture of macintosh systems. If u r planning to spend k on windows laptop. Just don&#;t go for it purchase MacBook Air instead. Never going back to windows

  • Rashmi S on Flipkart.com |

    It&#;s just the best (stating the obvious) ! But the only thing misleading is,they saying it&#;s mac os Sierra whereas what i recieved is el capitan which is an older version . Otherwise all other specifications are as mentioned.

    Got it on big billion sales for 45k. best config, smooth performance

  • Ravi Shukla on Flipkart.com |

    Osome product and best delivery via flipkart.. Just one advise if possible for you Can you please pack those kind of item like handy I mean I order at my office address and I face problem while holding those item can you give small ribben or give some advance looks like shopping bag.. It will give users to feel good and it&#;s easy to hold as well Thanks

  • Gowtham S on Flipkart.com |

    Who said MAC OS X is a complex and not user friendly ?? It is most simple than Windows OS. 30 min enough for to understand the OS X function.Even layman can easily use. Trackpad is enough for all the functions with simple gestures.Product need no comments. Battery backup for normal usage is around hrs. If you like to spend more than 40K to buy a laptop you may go to macbook.Some may said softwares availability is comparatively low for mac.Thats not true most of the softwares are available.You can install windows OS in macbook by bootcamp option is provided in itself . For hard drive Gb SSD is enough for normal user GB SSD with same config. you have to pay extra 20K. Instead you may buy Transcend jetlite GB SD Card for rs. and insert it in a macbook or if you have external hard drive that&#;s enough. It should be in exFAT file format then only macbook can perform read and write.NTFS means it can only read and do not perform write. Flipkart package is excellent and delivered it in 3 days. I am totally surprised by the kind of package. Flipkart is the authorised reseller for APPLE product.It mentioned in Apple website.

    Обзор MacBook (2017). Как выжить с одним Type-C?

    MacBook (–)

    Discontinued line of Apple notebook computers

    ‹&#;The templateInfobox information appliance is being considered for merging.&#;›

    The MacBook (marketed as the new MacBook, known colloquially as the inch MacBook or Retina MacBook) is a Macintosh notebook computer developed and sold by Apple Inc.[1] In Apple's product line it was considered a more premium device compared to the second-generation MacBook Air (at the time consisting of inch and inch models that were larger and heavier, while lacking the high-resolution "Retina" screen and having thicker bezels), and sat below the performance range MacBook Pro.[2]

    It was introduced in March It was more compact than any other notebook in the MacBook family, and includes a Retina display, fanless design, a shallower "Butterfly" keyboard, and a single USB-C port for power and data. It was discontinued in July , being largely supplanted by the second generation MacBook Air with Retina display.

    Overview[edit]

    The MacBook was announced at an Apple special event on March 9, , and was released a month later on April It employed Intel's Broadwell Core M processors at a TDP of around Watt to allow for a fanless design and a logic board that is much smaller than in previous MacBooks. It had a similar appearance to the MacBook Air, but was thinner and lighter, offered (at the time of introduction) more storage and memory and a higher-resolution × Retina display, but lower processor and graphics performance.[3] The MacBook has at times been available in space gray, silver, and gold finishes.

    The MacBook has only two ports, a &#;mm headphone jack and a single, multi-purpose USB-C port; it was the first Mac with USB-C. The port supports transmission speeds of up to 5&#;Gbit/s, and can be used for data, and audio/video output, and charging; it was the first MacBook without MagSafe charging. Apple markets an adapter that can provide a full-size USB connector, and a "Digital AV Multiport Adapter" with a charging pass-through, full-size USB port, and HDMI output.[4] Although Thunderbolt 3 technology uses USB-C connectors, the MacBook's USB-C port does not support Thunderbolt. It was one of only two Macs, along with the Mac Pro, to not support Thunderbolt since it was introduced to Macs in [5] Thunderbolt devices, such as storage media and the Apple Thunderbolt Display, are not compatible. Shortly after the MacBook's introduction, various companies began announcing cables and adapters for the USB-C port.[6]

    Despite its small size, it features a full-sized keyboard and a large trackpad. The MacBook introduced a new "Butterfly" keyboard, with traditional scissor mechanism keys replaced with a new, Apple-designed butterfly mechanism, making the keyboard thinner and, as Apple claims, individual keys more stable. The keyboard's backlight no longer consisted of a row of LEDs and a light guide panel, but instead used a single LED for each key.[7] It also introduced the Force Touch trackpad, a solid-state trackpad that measures pressure sensitivity, and replicates a click with haptic feedback. The trackpad was later brought to the Magic Trackpad 2 and the MacBook Pro. A similar technology (3D Touch) is also used in the Apple Watch and introduced with the iPhone 6S.

    The aluminum enclosure was &#;mm at its thickest point at the hinge end.[8] The battery was custom-designed to fill the available space in the small enclosure. It uses a new watt-hour lithium-polymer terraced battery cell which was advertised to provide "all day" battery life. Apple claimed nine hours of Internet browsing or ten hours of iTunes movie playback. The battery was improved in the refresh, with Apple claiming ten hours for Internet browsing, and eleven hours of iTunes movie playback.[9] The MacBook did not include any beryllium, BFRs, or PVCs in its construction. The display was made of arsenic-free glass and contains no mercury. It was made of recyclable materials such as aluminum and glass, meets Energy Star standards, and was rated EPEAT Gold.

    On April 19, , Apple updated the MacBook with Skylake Core M processors, Intel HD graphics, faster memory, longer battery life, faster storage[10] and a new rose gold finish.[11]

    On June 5, , Apple updated the MacBook with Intel Kaby Lake m3, i5, and i7 processors (previously known as m3, m5, and m7). It featured the second generation butterfly keyboard, which introduced new symbols for the control and option keys. It also features faster storage and memory.[12]

    On October 30, , Apple quietly eliminated two color options (rose gold and the original gold) and added a new color option (new gold) to match the MacBook Air's color scheme.[13][14]

    On July 9, Apple quietly discontinued the MacBook line.[15]

    On June 30, Apple added the MacBook to its "vintage products" list, making it eligible for only limited product support.[16]

    Design[edit]

    A side view of the MacBook

    Externally, the MacBook follows the design of the MacBook Air with a tapered aluminum enclosure. It has a flush screen with black bezels similar to the MacBook Pro. The Apple logo on the rear of the display is glossy and opaque, rather than backlit and white as seen on every Apple notebook since the PowerBook G3 and iBook.[17][18] It is the thinnest and lightest notebook Apple has produced to date, inches ( cm) at its thickest point, and pounds ( kg).

    The letters on the MacBook's keyboard and the model name at the bottom of the screen bezel are in the San Francisco typeface, whereas previous notebooks made by Apple used VAG Rounded.[7]

    Apple's introduction of a gold MacBook finish had been cited as an example of positioning itself as a luxury-style brand. The choice follows the introduction of the gold iPhone 5S after Apple found that gold was seen as a popular sign of a luxury among Chinese customers.

    Reception[edit]

    Reception for the MacBook was mixed. Critics praised the design and overall quality of the product, with some regarding it as a potential successor to the MacBook Air, as the Air had an aging design and low resolution screen.[2] However, Apple continued to offer the MacBook Air while selling the MacBook at considerably higher price. Several described the MacBook as a limited first-generation proof-of-concept design for early adopters, and recommended against buying the MacBook until it reached greater maturity, and its price dropped sufficiently for mainstream adoption.[20][21][22][23][24][25] The slow performance of the Intel Core M processor was regarded as the new MacBook's main deficiency, relative to the cheaper and faster MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.[26] Among the other criticisms of the new MacBook are the lack of various popular ports, particularly USB Type-A ports, and that it only contains a single port which limits data transfer and overall convenience without the use of an adapter.[27]

    The keyboard received considerable criticism as being poor for long-term use: developer Marco Arment described the notebook's build and small size as "absolutely amazing, revolutionary, and mind-blowing until you need to use the keyboard for something."[28] He also criticised the trackpad as worse than on previous MacBooks, and said that he would be returning the model he had bought.[29]

    A report by AppleInsider had claimed that the updated butterfly keyboard fails twice as often as previous models, often due to particles stuck beneath the keys.[30] Repairs for stuck keys have been estimated to cost more than $[31] In May , two class action lawsuits were filed against Apple regarding the keyboard issue with one alleging a "constant threat of nonresponsive keys and accompanying keyboard failure" and accusing Apple of not alerting consumers to the issue.[32][33] In June , Apple announced a Service Program to "service eligible MacBook and MacBook Pro keyboards, free of charge".[34]

    Identify your MacBook Pro model

    Use this information to find out which MacBook Pro you have, and where it fits in the history of MacBook Pro.

    Your Mac provides several tools to help you identify it. The simplest is About This Mac, available by choosing About This Mac from the Apple menu  in the upper-left corner of your screen. The other is the System Information app. Learn how to use these tools to identify your Mac.

    If you don’t have your Mac or it doesn’t start up, use one of these solutions instead:

    • Find the serial number printed on the underside of your Mac, near the regulatory markings. It’s also on the original packaging, next to a barcode label. You can then enter that serial number on the Check Coverage page to find your model.
    • The original packaging might also show an Apple part number, such as MLH12xx/A (“xx” is a variable that differs by country or region). You can match the Apple part number to one in the list below to find your model.
