Last week, many MacBook Pro 2016 day-one buyers have gone to social media about the status of their orders. According to these individuals, Apple has started charging their credit cards for their MacBook Pro purchases. Now, the same people have actually confirmed that their units have began shipping. Others are even reporting delivery as early as Nov. 14.
When Apple released the new MacBook Pro, it said the shipping for the Touch Bar equipped version will start two weeks after the release. A few hours later, the company?s website changed the shipping dates to 4 to 5 weeks.
The only good news is that it also unveiled a MacBook Pro without the Touch Bar. This model was available on the same day as the unveiling.
Over the course of two weeks, Apple has received a number of complaints about the MacBook Pro 2016?s design. Many are griping about Apple?s decision to forgo older port standards such as USB Type-A and the original Thunderbolt. Because of this, the tech giant has put its line of USB Type-C adapter on sale.
In addition to ports, many also criticized Apple?s inability to push the MacBook Pro?s maximum RAM capacity. To date, the laptop can only support a maximum of 16GB of RAM. Apple was quick to defend its choice not to increase the RAM size of the new laptop. According to the company, increasing the memory will also entail increased power usage that will greatly affect the battery. Somehow, a compromise was made in favor of battery life versus the need to add more memory to the system.
The new MacBook Pro 2016 still features an older, albeit improved, Intel Skylake processor. Many fans were a bit disappointed with this as they were expecting to see the new Kaby Lake on the MacBook Pro 2016. However, most of them did not mind the older processor as reports suggest that orders for the new laptop are on record high. Perhaps many are excited to try out the new Touch Bar feature of the MacBook Pro 2016.
