The New Pink MacBook 2016 Sucks! Lets Cut
It Out Apple. Hey, what’s good guys? Keaton here, so I got the brand new MacBook. Comes
in pink, but it still sucks. So, I’ll tell ya why. So Apple dropped the MacBook last
year, and it kinda took a lot of people by storm just because this MacBook right here
is trying to replace a MacBook Air. This is my MacBook Air right here, and this is the
2nd generation in 2016, and it’s just really not cuttin it. So the MacBook as a whole,
it’s a pretty good idea. Some of the things I really like include the size and weight.
Here’s my 13-inch MacBook Air and here’s the MacBook. It is a 12-inch screen. So, you can
definitely see how much they have cut down just on the MacBook alone, and what I really
like about it is it’s a 12-inch screen but it doesn’t look like a 12-inch screen. It
looks a lot smaller and that’s because they’ve shaved down these bezels and they’ve made
the laptop so thin that you don’t even get an illuminating Apple logo, which is kind
of a staple to these laptops, and that’s really great. This thing is super light. It comes
in at just around two pounds and it’s perfect. I feel like I can take this thing everywhere.
It’s a chill laptop for the couch back there. It’s perfect for a plane. It feels like an
iPad but can do more than an iPad. Another thing that’s really sweet is the keyboard
so according to Apple, the laptop is so thin that they can’t have a normal keyboard which
has when you press down it’s a very far press, so what they did is they have these things
called butterfly keys and it feels like you’re not actually typing on it, but you are. The
last awesome thing about the MacBook is the battery life I was able to get around six
to seven hours just on a normal days worth of use. Now I’m a student, and I’m also a
big Netflix fan, so I was watching a ton of Netflix and I was actually writing a paper
on this and I was able to get around six to seven hours. Now for the stuff that I freaking
hate on the MacBook. I’ve never made a video on a MacBook. So, I get to complain about
this. It’s this one port right here. Do you see that? Yeah, that’s the only port on the
MacBook. You have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack here so you can listen to your music.
But, this one port here is a USBC port and that’s really great and all, but that’s it.
I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t own a ton of USBC devices. This is the only cord
that I have and it’s to charge it, and after I’m done charging it, I have to go buy an
adapter to get USBs so I can have normal devices plug in. Do you get the kind of point here?
They pretty much are skipping ahead with new technology, which is awesome but only having
one port, requires me to carry around aton of cables, which I just hate doing. Apple
doesn’t even give you any adapters so, you’re lookin at around an $80 investment if you
go the Apple route and around $30ish on Amazon. It’s just something else you gotta carry and
look out for. Another thing they did, is they made the new MacBook faster. So, I got the
$1600 model here which has the middle-of-the-line processor. It has the M5, so you got your
M3, M5, M7 and I didn’t notice any speed difference. Now what I got here, is a baseline, 13-inch
MacBook Air, that I bought for $1,000 two years ago. So this is 2014 laptop, has four
gigabytes of RAM. This is like, half the computer this is, at least on paper. But, in real-world
performance, this thing has eight gigs of RAM, so double the memory. So this thing handles
apps better, and I can have more apps open at once. That’s great, but other than that,
it’s not really faster than this guy and if that’s a selling-point or kind of one reason
why you wanna upgrade, hold off, you’re not gonna really notice a difference. Oh, and
another thing, the battery life on this thing, is awesome. We’ve already established that.
The problem is, I think my voice just cracked there. The problem is when you wanna charge
it, it takes forever to charge. I’m using the standard USBC cable that came with it.
Ya know, doing everything official and when you go to plug it in, my voice just cracked
again there, I don’t know what you’re doin voice. When you go to plug it in, it takes
around three to four hours to charge. That is a big problem if you’re a student or just
someone who’s on-the-go constantly. I don’t have time to wait for this thing to charge.
I don’t know what’s goin on, if there needs to be some sort of update. This thing charges
in 90 minutes. My Retina MacBook Pro back there charges in two hours and that’s like
five times the computer this is. I don’t really get it. And the last thing that kinda just
seals the deal on why this thing sucks, is the price. When they first dropped the MacBook,
everyone complained about the one port here and the price. And that’s totally fair. The
same kinda stuff applies right now. Basically, if you wanna get one of these things, you’re
looking at spending a minimum of $1,300 which for a lot of people is really steep. It’s
really steep for me, especially what you’re getting offered here and who’s calling my
phone? I don’t even know who’s calling. Especially for what you’re getting, but $1,300, it’s
not really sellin it for me. This computer is meant to kind of kill the MacBook right
here. So, if they want to do that, Generation 3 is where it’s gotta go down. More ports,
price it around a thousand bucks. And then, I could actually recommend this computer.
That’s pretty much it for this video. If you guys enjoyed it and kind of agree that this
computer still sucks, drop a Like on it, and get subscribed if you’re new around here.
And yeah, I’ll see you guys soon. Peace.
