MacBook Pro 2017 | Intel Kabylake | Apple | 2017

Hi Everyone!

This is Jay here and this is my review of the new MacBook Pro 2017 from Apple. This is the first time I am using a laptop aka an ultrabook from Apple, apart from my late MacBook Air 2015, which had a 5th generation intel core i5 CPU coupled with 8gb of LPDDR3 RAM clocked at 1600Mhz and a 128 GB SSD. I have been a Windows user my whole life, and now have finally decided to make the switch, as I believe with the new hardware and software upgrades that Apple has offered, its a good start. So besides the past lets talk about the new MacBook Pro 2017 in all its glory. The new MacBook Pro is powered by the latest Intel core i5 7th generation(Kabylake) CPU with 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM clocked at 2133 MHz with a Apple proprietary SSD. The one I got was the base line model without the touch-bar, as I felt its nothing more than a gimmick rather then providing actual functionality. Performance wise its whats you'd expect, The laptop can handle daily task like a breeze with zero to no lag whatsoever. The 2560x1600 IPS LCD Retina display is a charm to look at, and while watching Netflix for a few hours I faced no issues and it was a pleasant experience. The screen is bright, vivid with the right amount of contrast and saturation. It gets extremely bright outdoors and you feel no fatigue. And it comes in space-grey. 😉

So to sum things up here are some of the pros and cons that I have found with the new MacBook Pro 2017 which I thought you might like to have a look:


1. Best build in its class. There are a plenty of good machines out there, and believe me when I say this, that the new MacBook Pro beats them all, hands down. The love for detail that has gone in making this machine is absolutely fantastic. You won't find anything that looks misplaced or out-right in any of the machinery. 

2. The screen, and man oh man is it great, I have used a lot of windows laptops and till date haven't come across a screen as gorgeous as the new MacBook Pro.

3. The keyboard, and this maybe subjective, as for me I feel the new keyboards is a breeze to type on, the large and shallow keys are easy to reach and the backlighting makes typing in the dark a joy to behold.
