It’s been less than a year since Apple released
its touch bar MacBook Pros. And now just after 8 months, a new, improved
version of the MacBook Pro has arrived. The 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro has a few minor
improvements from last year’s model. Should you consider buying this laptop? Is it worth upgrading from previous generations
of MacBook Pros? Well, let’s take a look. Visually, you can already tell the 2017 MacBook
Pro is only an incremental upgrade from the previous generation. There are no external changes to speak of
whatsoever. Nevertheless, this thing is an absolute beauty,
the best-looking laptop around in my opinion. Other competing laptops like the Dell XPS
15 are also good looking in their own right. But overall for fit and finish and how the
design comes together, the 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro is class leading for me. Again, this is subjective. Like last year’s model, the build quality
is second to none. Full aluminium build. There’s hardly any flex in such a thin device. The precision of the machining is incredible. The Razer Blade and the Dell XPS, they come
close but this is as close as you can get to perfect in mid-2017. The only thing I can say I prefer on the Dell
XPS would be the smoother edges, thanks to its carbon fibre chassis – which is more comfortable
to use. Dimensions wise, the laptop is 34.9 centimetres
across, 24 centimetres tall and is only 1.55 centimetres thick. Even with the incredible build, it only weighs
1.83 kilograms – so thats just over 4 pounds. If we look at the actual physical features;
we have a 15.4 inch retina display – nice glossy finish, above which we have a 720p
FaceTime camera, new 2nd generation ‘Butterfly’ keyboard, an absolutely ginormous trackpad
and of course the touch bar. And the power button which also doubles as
a fingerprint reader. Also, the speaker grilles on either side. On the sides we have a couple of USB C ports
and the 3.5 millimetre headphone jack. So again, the exterior hasn’t changed from
the 2016 MacBook Pro, but the insides have. So let’s take a look at whats changed. So, in the 2017 15 inch MacBook Pros, the
CPUs have been upgraded to 7th generation ‘Kaby Lake’ Intel Core i7s. This year’s base model comes with an Intel
Core i7 7700HQ. This is up from previous year’s 6700HQ. So this bump up to 7th generation CPUs makes
the MacBook Pros more efficient, so they produce less heat. Slightly improve battery life and performance
in general. But there is a lot better performance and
efficiency when you work with 4K video. Same amount of RAM as last year’s 15 inch
base model – still 16 gigabytes, and it still cant be upgraded to 32. Still using DDR3LP, which is slightly disappointing
– because so many rival Windows laptops now now have DDR4. This is no way a deal breaker but is slightly
disappointing. The RAM is still running a very speedy 2133
megahertz. We’ve also got new dedicated graphics cards
– they are AMD Radeon Pro 5 series cards. Up from last year’s 4 series. This year’s base model comes with a Radeon
Pro 555 card, which is a bump up from last year’s ‘450’. Again, this year’s GPU can be upgraded to
a ‘560’ if you feel the need – with 4 gigabytes of VRAM. Again, nothing major but incremental changes. It’s a shame we’re not seeing Nvidia GPUs
in here. A (GTX) 960M or (GTX) 1050 would have been
perfect in my opinion. There are new, faster PCIe drives – this is
good to see, but again it’s an incremental upgrade. Its available in 256 gigabytes, 512 gigabytes,
1 and 2 terabyte upgrades. So, some solid hardware upgrades in this year’s
MacBook Pro 15, but nothing ground-breaking when you compare it to last year’s MacBook
Pros. So, how does it perform? In day to day tasks – as you expect from a
high-end laptop – it tears through everything you throw at it. For more intensive tasks like 4K video editing
– they’re still kind of a breeze. But when it comes to gaming, it’s possible,
but don’t expect to play the latest titles like Battlefield 1 on high settings and again,
nowhere near the native resolution. And keep in mind you will need Windows
to do that. Now, moving onto the display. Again, same display as last year’s model – a
15.4 inch Retina display running at a resolution of 2880 by 1880. Very sharp display, really vivid colours,
really accurate, just like last year’s. And it truly is one of the best laptop displays
on the market. Yes, it’s not a 4K display, but unless you’re
working with 4K all the time and you really need that pixel for pixel accuracy, its plenty
good enough for basically everyone. Speakers haven’t changed from last year’s
MacBook Pro – very loud, very ‘bassy’, produces very high fidelity sound, even at maximum
volume. It’s still the best laptop speaker on the
market today. Again, not by a huge margin – some competitors
do come close, but its still definitely the best around. Now let’s take a look at the keyboard and
mouse and of course the touch bar. No changes in these from last year – same
ginormous trackpad and the second generation ‘Butterfly’ keyboard, and no changes in the
touch bar. Although Apple has not mentioned and changes
to the keyboard specifically, this one does feel slightly more clicky than last year’s,
which give nicer, more tactile feedback. Again, as with all other devices with this
new keyboard type – it takes getting used to. Its not really better or worse than any other
keyboard, but once you get used to it, it can be enjoyable to type on. But again, not any more so than a keyboard
with more key travel. The trackpad is great just like all of Apple’s
Force Touch trackpads. Which has matured through the years and is
now just really solid tech. However, I would say from a purely visual
standpoint that it is slightly too big. Some people have reported issues with palm
rejection. I’m not having this problem, but visually,
it is too big and the size doesn’t actually add much utility to the laptop. Now, the touch bar. Same as last year’s, and what can I say? It’s a cool feature to have and mess around
with once in a while. It has some uses which can speed up your workflow,
but these are very niche in their nature. My experience with the touch bar basically
makes things we do regularly; like changing the brightness, changing the volume – makes
them more tedious – which would be fine if it provided significantly better features,
but it just doesn’t. On Final Cut, you can use the touch bar to
switch tools for example – from cursor to splitter. That’s great, but I already know the keyboard
shortcuts, which is ‘A’ and ‘B’ – which is to be honest, quicker than using the touch
bar. As of now, we just have to wait for better
software support for the touch bar to hit the market, and really see where it takes
us. The Touch ID power button is a great feature
– now that we have Windows Hello, it’s a quicker way of logging in, and it’s something
which the vast majority of people will appreciate. Finally, let’s have a look at I/O and battery
life. Like last year’s MacBook Pro, we have 4 USB
C ports, 2 on either side and a 3.5 millimetre headphone jack to the right side. They do the job, but you will definitely need
to buy some adaptors and dongles if this is going to be your daily driver. I’ve got the ‘Satechi’ one – it’s got 2
USB 3 ports, an SD card and MicroSD card reader, a USB C port to make up for the one that it takes
up. So that’s what most people need, if you
need a display connector or other things, there will be a dongle out there for it. Again, this a really aggressive approach by
Apple. Accessory makers will be forced to make USB
C devices. So give it another year or two and the market
should catch up – fingers crossed. When it comes to battery life, this really
boils down to what you use the laptop for. For daily tasks like browsing, watching videos,
you can expect around 8 to 10 hours of battery life on a medium brightness. If you start ramping up the brightness, you’ll
get around 5 to 7 hours of battery life. For really light usage, on a medium-low brightness,
like taking notes and Word, it can easily pass the 10 hour mark. However, if you start pushing the computer
and do video editing or gaming, your battery life can fall right down to 2 to 3 hours. Again, these are things you would normally
do plugged in. So, the 2017 15 inch MacBook pro is a really
solid laptop – it performs great, looks fantastic, the best build quality, great display, good
speakers, really good battery life – as long as you keep to moderately intensive tasks
and again a distinct lack of ports. So should you buy it? It really depends on what you want to do with
it. For the average person, you would get way
better value with something else like a MacBook Air or a 13 inch MacBook Pro, or again the
vast array of excellent Windows laptops out there – and this is because the 2017 15 inch
MacBook Pro starts at an eye-watering £2349. My unit costs £2699. For the average person – for this price tag,
I can’t really recommend it. No, it’s not for gaming. You would get way better performance and value
from a Windows laptop like the Razer Blade running Nvidia graphics. Neither is it for Adobe video editing users
like Premiere Pro and After Effects, also because of the lack of Nvidia graphics. If you are thinking of switching to this from
a previous 15 inch MacBook Pro, if you have a 2015 or 2016 MacBook Pro – I wouldn’t consider
switching to this. The tiny performance increase isn’t worth
the money and neither is the touch bar in my opinion. However, if you have a pre-2015 15 inch MacBook
Pro, you can definitely consider upgrading. But also take a good look at what high-end
Windows offerings there are out there. So, the 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro is really
for creative users who use Apple software like Final Cut and non-video Adobe software
and other creative users. If you use things like Final Cut Pro or Photoshop
– things like that… It is a laptop which you can consider. But because of the price tag, isn’t a laptop
I can recommend to everyone. Thanks for watching our review of the 2017

    If you use a 2016, I should say maybe not worth the upgrade if you not need/want the latest and greatest. But if you use pre/older one..I should say it's worth it.

    A great review, thank you. I must admit to being a little puzzled as to why customers in the market for a new MBP would buy this one rather than waiting a few months for the High Sierra version with all-new APFS, HEVEC, Metal 2, etc?

    As a prospective purchaser of this laptop, and a first time user coming from Windows, I would be really grateful if you could say a little more about the issues using Adobe CC on this machine. What affects does the absence of nvidia chips have on video editing? And does Apple provide alternative software of its own capable of completing all the same tasks, especially with photographic work? Thanks in advance, TechRanger.Net.

I mainly do programming, but I do like working with logic pro and final cut. Big decision on the money part. Thank you again for your wonderful video. 👍👍

    Great video!
    I'm gonna be a student in one year (I'm in high school right now) and I'm in the eco system so I'll want a Mac. I'm just hesitating between the 12 inch Macbook, the 13 inch MBP or the 15 inch. What I'm scared about with the 12 or 13 is not the power but the screen size. I fear that it'll be hard when I work on two or three documents at the sane time, with mail and several web pages open. But in the 15 inch is expensive…could you give me any info regarding that?

    At least they released a refresh of the MBP. But more and faster RAM would be great. Also the price for SSD upgrade is just retarded. But as a App Developer you have not much alternatives and it will be a great update for my 2010 MBP. Now I only have to wait about 2-3 weeks until it arrives, just because I upgraded the storage…

    I got the 2016 Mac and I love it to death. If the price isn't a problem I think just get it. Most consumers will only ever need a USB C to USB 3.0 adapter pretty much, otherwise SD card slots? Nahh. One of the reasons why I think a non pro consumer should get this is because let's be honest, we are not only using Macs for the practicality, it's also for (if I may say..) vain reasons like it's so beautiful, the touch bar just looks cooler even though I might not use it much, and the screen and its high color gamut are great for Game of Thrones. Sometimes you just want the latest thing and that's a good enough reason to get it. Who loves new MacBooks? I do I do I doo ooooooo!
    I won't get the 2017 model because it's an improvement for people who actually care about having that slight boost in performance, which I don't since it doesn't change much for me. I use tensorflow for machine learning and the GPU does a decent enough job for 4000+ iterations, akin to an Nvidea GTX 1050.
    Great video, I thought it was very real!

    Hard core Apple user since the early 80's, using it as a creative/graphics professional user. VERY disappointed in the last 2 iterations of the MBP. The USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 only I/O though "cutting edge", automatically alienates a whole host of users. Also, the MagSafe power port was sheer brilliance. Though the brightness and color accuracy are fantastic, I am looking to replace my long in the tooth iMac with a higher end Windows laptop. The touchbar was a premature feature, with the exception of the Touch ID button, otherwise it's gimmicky. For my Photoshop and Adobe Creative Cloud software, a Windows laptop, like a Gigabyte Aero 15 (with the XRite/PANTONE display) or the touch 4K XPS 15 might be the ticket. Enjoyed the review!

    Great 2017 MacBook Pro Review… I decided to wait for the 2017 version and I'm glad I did because it has been a flawless experience with none of the bugs some of the early adopters had with the 2016 model. Plus I wanted to wait for Kaby Lake so I was happy to see it came sooner than later along with the other tweeks they made under the hood that they didn't speak about.

    Hi! Great video and you've gained a new subscriber! Just one quick question, I do a lot of video editing and shooting with gopro in high resolutions such as 4k but need a computer to be able to efficiently edit and work with this footage. I currently have a mid 2014 macbook pro and it just does not cut it. Would you recommend upgrading to the 15" 2017 macbook pro? Am certainly willing to pay the money.

    I recently upgraded from the 13" 2017 MacBook pro with TouchBar to the high end quad core 15" 2017, and for some reason i think the 13" display was way brighter than the 15". Maybe i'm wrong but it seems that way to me.

    im looking to upgrade from a 2012 macbook pro that is beginning to get painfully slow. Do you recommend this or the 13 inch?

    You can use native resolution with RDM, and it’ll stay there after reboot unless you change it again. Also I don’t think windows hello works with the fingerprint sensor

    Great video and thank you for sharing. Reference to track pad size, in my opinion, Apple made it larger because of all the gesture capabilities. I notice from going from my 2014 macbook pro 15" that my fingers are wandering off the track pad whereas on my new 2017 15" I have not drifted away from the trackpad meaning I don't have to look down as often anymore when I'm gesturing, etc.

    Does this perform badly when used with Adobe photoshop or after effects?

    Ngl I originally thought this was the worst keyboard ever when I first used it, but once I used it more I fell in love with it. I actually prefer typing on it over my mechanical keyboard a lot of times. If you're on the edge about the keyboard, I swear you'll enjoy it if you give it a chance.

    Debating whether to buy this MacBook but the one without the touch bar. I have an hp and after just over 2 years it’s already freezing and takes a long time to load the home page and needs an update almost every week

    Battery is a joke. 2015 15" model 95.5 watt-hours battery. Compared to 2016/2017 76 watt-hours.

    Don't buy:  I went for the top spec macbook pro 15" 2017 and found out, it's not physically made to perform a load the cpu/gpu could handle.Overheating under heat within 1 minute. made a clip about it: https://youtu.be/ehAidzY4d0c

    Honestly, you didn't have to lie about the keyboard. Just be honest, it's absolutely terrible.

    With my course I do video editing and coursework and photo editing. Would going for the 15 inch be a better option. I heard it has that extra performance boost

    I have one for one year and I needed it for my job. After 13 months of moderate- couple hours a day , use, screen started to flicker and I was unable to do anything about it. To add insult to injury apple store is asking $750 to fix that. Please do yourself favor and avoid this expensive peace of trash that would cost you much more than you are paying right now.
    Also while in apple store another customer brought in incdentical Mac book pro 2017 15”.5 retina laptop with identical problem and it was told same thing. They want $750 to repair it. Well done Apple, be ashamed of yourself
