Apple MacBook Pro 2016 put through the ultimate test – did it sink or swim? – Express.co.uk
Although it might not be the best machine for a long-haul flight this new laptop is actually incredibly portable.
Once we’d hit the endless halls of CES, carrying the MacBook in our rucksack wasn’t as big a problem as we’d originally expected.
We wanted a large laptop to help us plough through the endless announcements that are rapidly revealed from the world’s biggest technology show, but we had a feeling we’d pay for this luxury with a bag that felt like it was full of bricks.
Luckily, when you’re carrying this new MacBook it really doesn’t feel that big.
That’s because Apple has managed to shave a lot of weight from its new design and that’s made it far easier to handle.
In fact, the 2016 MacBook Pro 15-inch only weighs 1.8kg which isn’t much heavier than its smaller 13-inch predecessor.
Clearly, the new Pro isn’t as portable as Apple’s insanely thin MacBook, but it’s surprising just how easy we found lugging this mega machine around Las Vegas.
