Apple MacBook Pro 2016: the verdict

 

Following our early hands-on look at the new MacBook Pro, we've spent some more time with Apple's latest flagship notebook – and, in particular, we've been able to run it through our benchmark tests.

Despite that, there's no doubt that the new MacBook Pro is a great laptop. It’s slimmer, lighter, has a slightly nicer display and in general is a more pleasant device to use than its predecessor.
