Top 5 Letdowns of 2016 MacBook Pro:

Hey guys, it’s Andy. This is the 2016 MacBook Pro, the 13” Space Gray model with a 512GB SSD and 8GB of RAM, and this is the Touch Bar and Touch ID model so we’ll take a look at both of those in this video. This model I have cost right around $2,000 US.

In the box we have the most important piece of equipment, the MacBook Pro itself. Not sure why I have to tell you that but hey I ain’t gonna lie to you. There’s not much else in the box, just the quick start guide, some Apple stickers, the power adapter with the USB-C port, and lastly the USB-C cable.

The first thing I noticed was that the MacBook Pro automatically powered on when I opened the lid. Now I don’t know if that’s a new feature of MacBook Pros because my last MacBook Pro purchase was over 7 years ago, but I thought that was interesting.

During the setup it asked me to place my finger on the Touch ID button and it works just like Touch ID on the iPhone and my fingerprint was registered in less than a minute. What’s weird though is that after a cold boot it did not let me sign on to the laptop with Touch ID. I had to enter my password which was strange because I thought we could use Touch ID to log in, not just unlock the MacBook Pro.

It’s really thin and light, something that Apple is making a priority with most of their laptops recently. However I would still prefer performance over mobility when it comes to the Pro models any day of the week.

It has 4 USB type C ports, 2 on the left side, and 2 on the right side along with, oh you guessed it, a headphone jack. Apple, where’s the courage?

Some of the most notable new features are the new Trackpad which is hyyuge, and the good news is while I was typing, the Trackpad did not register the palms of my hands as clicks which is something I was concerned about but it seems to be a non-issue.

Speaking of typing, this has the new 2nd generation butterfly keyboard and I never owned a 1st-gen butterfly keyboard like on the 12” MacBook but I love this 2nd gen keyboard. It feels great typing on it from the short time I’ve had it. I really enjoy it which is a nice surprise.

Lastly, the thing you’ve been wanting to see the most, the new Touch Bar. This is an OLED touch bar across the top of the keyboard that replaces the old physical function keys but also integrates with whatever app you have open and gives you a more customized and better experience according to its maker. I called this a gimmick in my previous video after the announcement was made, and I’ll see for sure if it is a gimmick or if it’s actually useful in the coming weeks when I’ll be sharing my full review video so be sure to subscribe to see that. From my short time with it so far it seems pretty cool. I think it will definitely be the most useful in Final Cut Pro when I’m editing videos. I’ll find out soon. Until then, this has been a quick first look at the 2016 13” MacBook Pro. Thanks for watching, I’d love if you give this video a thumbs up, and I’ll see you in the next video.

  1. Whats the point of touch ID if you still have to input your password? Just an extra layer of security? Can you change settings so password isn't needed?

  2. Ok, so when i put the MacBook Pro on sleep mode and then wake it up, it never asks for my touch id, even though i have it enabled.
    help anyone???

  3. guys I hv a question … as is mentioned at 53s … we couldn't unlock the Macbook pro with the Touch ID but just for entering pw.. .. so I wonna ask see if there are any ways the make that Touch ID works on screen unlocking … coz thats way more cooler

  4. If I would like to upgrade from my 2011 MacBook Pro to the 2016 pro with touch bar do you guys think it worth it? Or I should wait a little more because there will be upgrades to the new pro? Actually WILL apple update the MacBook Pro with touch bar in the near future?

    Sorry if I sounded confused ^^' thank you for the answers!

  5. Cold-boot password requiring is not a strange phenomenon, it is just Apple being overprotective. I have an iPad, and it requires me to type the password when rebooted even though I have enabled the Touch ID. This goddamn Apple forces me to type the password even when I install iOS updates. For what? To prevent some hackers from installing iOS security patches for me?

  6. why not 16 GB ram? I can see choosing 512 SSD over RAM but when putting out 2K, isn't the $200 extra to future proof it with more ram worth it? 🙂 How would it affect your editing? and did you upgrade the processor?
