What the community says about MacBook Pro
- "This is a solid response for the editing query but not so much for gaming. Mac's arent neceassarily built for gaming. Possibly suggesting dell xps 15 inch or their inspiron gaming pc would have been a better bet as anything good for gaming is good for editing but not vice versa. "
- "This mac book is pretty much an expensive paper weight. It's processing speed is only 2.8ghz which is low in my opinion. I would have to say to be work over $1000 the processing speed would need to be at least 3.0ghz stock."
- "My photographer friends have been using MacBook Pro whenever they edit photos. Before I was only using a Dell laptop but i changed into a MacBook Pro. I bought the latest MacBook Pro with 15 inch retina display that has a sharp and vibrant color so i can see the real color of my photographes especially when i edit RAW photos. "
- "This is a good MacBook with enough processor, RAM, and SSD power to make programming a lot smoother. The best part is that there is no Windows software too worry about on this device- no concern that the next software update is going to make other existing apps malfunction."

- "This is a really great laptop for business professionals and people who want a thin working computer. I got this right out of college and have been using it at my finance job, I really like you because the quick strip makes it easier to pull up the programs I need instantly as I'm usually juggling between spreadsheets and graphic designs. This laptop is definitely one of the better ones from Apple."
- "The MacBook Pro is the premier laptop on the market today. Whether you're a student or have a job, this is the best laptop money can buy. I have found the 15" version to be the perfect size for my needs and provides me with that Apple polish that I have come to expect over the years."
- "Big fans of the MacBook Pro series might consider these models, but I think they are overpriced, considering the components that they come with. It seems like you could buy a Windows machine with similar specifications for a fraction of the price. The aesthetics of this company's products don't seem to justify this extra cost, in my mind, though some obviously can and do disagree."
- "A powerful laptop for on the go processing power. My Mac offers me the power of a desktop and lets me travel and work simultaneously. The display is high resolution, the cpu is fast and responsive for editing, plenty of RAM and HDD space, which is also upgradeable later on if you so choose. The only thing lacking would be the GPU, which is decent middle of the line, which is fine since most people don't game on them anyway."
- "I'm a beginning graphic designer and taking classes at a local community college. I needed a laptop that allows me to work on graphic design projects and is powerful enough for Photoshop and Illustrator. I bought a MacBook Pro 15 and I love it! It's fast, powerful, and beautiful. It does everything I need for my graphic design projects. I really recommend it, even though it's super expensive. It's well worth it if you need the power of a MacBook for your studies or work. Love it!""The MacBook Pro is a great laptop for both beginners and experienced graphic designers. The SSD storage really helps with programs being snappy, and the screen is great. You might be able to get a similarly spec-ed Windows laptop for a cheaper price, but there are a lot of great tools that you can only get for OS X. The simplified interface makes it easy to focus on learning design."

This one is much of the same. It has little to no capability for game development outside of mobile games. Not recommended if this is your reason to be in the market for an apple laptop."
- "In my humble opinion, the MacBook Pro 15" is probably the best laptop for any serious professional endeavor rather it be graphic design, video editing, programming, audio production, etc. The MacBook Pro product line is a portable workstation that is just consistent and stable, which is something you want when using a laptop or desktop for professional purposes. "
- "Apple has a reputation for not being good for gaming. This laptop changes that. it is powerful enough to run the latest games the display is vibrant and extremely crisp. Now that game manufacturers are making more games for MAc they are finally a contender in the gaming realm. I prefer mac computers for my day to day work, now they finally offered one that can run the latest games."
- "We needed to use AutoCAD in the shop, and someone recommended the macBook Pro 15. They said their old engineers loved it. Well, we do, too. I wasn't a Mac guy before, but it makes things so gosh darn simple that I can spend my time designing and not fighting with the system."

in What are the best laptops
- "Apples Macbook Pro 15 is the pinnacle of excellence. It is built from solid parts that very, very, rarely fail and it has a great choices in components and peripherals. You may end up paying more but it is worth it down the road as you are rewarded with many years of trouble free performance"
- "To be honest, you can learn programming on any laptop. So there is no real difference between the MacBook Pro 15 or any other laptop running Windows or Linux. The difference is with MacOS you can simply focus on learning to program, without worrying about the many issues that come with running Windows and the necessary knowledge it takes to run Linux. Apple's OS is the most user-friendly out of the three big three OS, which makes it the best in my opinion. "
- "This is a fantastic computer, but I don't know if I'd ever recommend a mac for someone who wants to code (mostly because PCs are usually where it's at for that). Still, you can easily boot windows on a mac, and you can't boot mac OS on a PC, so if you're going to be doing dual this might be your best bet."
- "I don't think a MacBook would be wise for game development. Not only are they pricey, you'd be better off with a PC. You can sure create standout video and images with a MacBook however."
- "I love using my MacBook Pro 15 for programming. It's not really suited to programming for Windows, of course, as that will be a hassle. However, I have used it for any kind of Java, C, C++, Linux, shell scripting and so much beyond that scope. The usability is superb with a good UI and operating system in general. It's suited everything I needed it for so I recommend it highly.""There's nothing that needs to be said when it comes to Apple MacBook Pro's that hasn't already been said with great praise already. Having been a MacBook Pro user for over a decade now I can definitely say this has been one of the best laptops I've ever used. In fact I still have first MacBook Pro and it's still going strong. I actually passed that down to my daughter so she can use it for her homework assignments and to play online games. I got myself the brand new Apple MacBook Pro. I got the 15 with the Retina Display with all the fixings and this it has not disappointed. It's still the same solid construction as I have known it to be and now it's equipped with so much more than my previous one. It's a robust beast and one that I know will last me at the minimum another decade.""The MacBook Pro 15, in fact most MacBooks, are not the best thing for programming, unless you are looking to program in an Apple based language. The laptop itself is far too high end for basic programming, and most programmers work in systems outside of the normal Apple or Windows operating systems, so the extra performance means nothing.""Chose this laptop to being my career change to a computer science field. So far I have no complaints. The processor is quite powerful and the laptop comes with 16 gb ram and a very large solid state drive. The battery life is quite good and the charging time is short. A bit pricy but worth it. ""I'm not generally a fan of Apple products, but I have to admit how amazing this laptop is for programming. The solid state hard drive makes it incredibly fast. The operating system comes loaded with several programming apps that will make getting right into programming a cinch. ""Light, thin, durable, powerful, all wrapped in a sleek package. Apple has done it again for those laptop lover with the MacBook pro 15"
- "The macbook pro is a great option, you can duel boot into windows or mac osx, so it can offer the best of both worlds, the 15" screen is small but the quality is enough to get the job done. The macbook pro is one of the best laptops around and is perfect of any type of media or programming needs, and is enjoyed by artists and media editors all over.""The MacBook Pro 15 is a good laptop for you if you want to get into PLC programming. It has exceptional specifications that will get you programming with no delay and frustration. It has virtually no competition on the market for any task that you want to get done!"
- "This MacBook Pro is absolutely amazing and I love my pro 15. Can you imagine surfing the internet knowing that your computer is safe from almost all viruses due to Apple's genius with their IOS brand. I can because I have been an avid apple user for years now and the MacBook Pro is definitely the way to go."
- "As somebody that has experience using Linux, Windows and OS, I can definitely say, that this is not a good solution since Apple has their own operating system that works the best with their hardware. It's not impossible though. You can run a virtualization software to make it work but the MacBook is definitely not the best laptop for Linux. For somebody that is not tech savvy, this solution is not helpful since it does not even tell you if Linux would work on a Macbook.""I am actually not a fan of this MacBook. Yes, it's thin and light, but I don't think that the display is any better than before. But the worst thing is the Touch Bar - it gets in my way! I'm constantly touching it by accident, and making the macbook do something that I didn't expect. So I shut it off...but why even have it, then? Useless. Save your money."
- "This is a Macbook Pro from late 2016 Macbook version "MacBookPro13,2" It has a DUAL CORE i7-6567U at 3.3hz 16gb of ram and the 512gb SSD drive that when formatted shows less like it does on every single other computer on the planet windows/mac/linux/etc... There was only one more option you could get for this laptop when it was sold and that was a 1tb SSD drive. So this laptop was over $2600 when sold brand new. and the absolute top of the line macbook possible in late 2016."
- "This laptop has a great design, a very attractive screen, and the capability to handle photo software and other software that needs high processing capabilities. However, the keyboard is subpar, with weird feel and responsive. The price is steep but it's worth it if you need power and quickness. "
- "Many of the negative reviews here are from people that either don't understand computers or bought during the short time the specs posted by amazon as to what people were buying were wrong. Amazon has now fixed that and what you see is now accurate. This is a Macbook Pro from late 2016 Macbook version "MacBookPro13,2" It has a DUAL CORE i7-6567U at 3.3hz 16gb of ram and the 512gb SSD drive that when formatted shows less like it does on every single other computer on the planet windows/mac/linux/etc... There was only one more option you could get for this laptop when it was sold and that was a 1tb SSD drive. So this laptop was over $2600 when sold brand new. and the absolute top of the line macbook possible in late 2016. Mine arrived brand new untouched by american hands. All shrink wrapped up and all apple packing perfectly intact, it is a new, old stock laptop that Amazon had in stock on a shelf and did not sell. They are now trying to liquidate their old stock, this is why it is discounted by over $600. The battery was more than 50% discharged and this is a good thing as it is a bad idea to story any Lithium-Ion battery at more than a 75% charge or it will degrade it's lifespan. considering this has been sitting on a shelf in a Amazon warehouse for over a year, it has kept he residual charge up nicely. I ran geekbench on it to get a baseline for performance. CPU benchmark came back as single core :3732 and multi core :7527 making this a solid performer for video editing, photo editing, audio editing, and even running VM machines. Processor check comes back as a GenuineIntel, and serial number when checked with apple is also genuine. "
- "The MacBook Pro was once the standard for creatives working in both audio and visual mediums. I believe that this trend is starting to change. The program Visual Studio is actually a Microsoft product and therefore would be optimized for Microsoft machines. Mac users would have to use a VM to even work in visual studio. So, I think that this choice is way off the mark. As for me, I'll use Linux and GIMP, thank you very much!"

- "This seems like a good solution. This is a top of the line laptop with a good rating. It is expensive but that should be expected. "
- "This is my first MacBook Pro and it is amazing. It is a powerful laptop that can handle pretty much whatever you throw at it. As a web designer, I use it for programming and multimedia editing. The quality built, bright crisp sceen, Multi-Touch bar, and slim light weight design make this a very functional computer that is a pleasure to use. I have had no problems with it so far."
- "People often ask me what computer they need for gaming I always suggest a MacBook Pro 15. Of course this is what I have and it is my choice because it is so thin and light and easy to have around. It is an attractive machine with an attractive display. The touch bar is a feature you can't get anywhere else. Don't forget to research this computer if you are in the market. "
- "Normally I'm not a fan of Apple products, but after having some first hand experience with one at my job I instantly fell in love. My friend has this exact same MacBook and loaned it to me for the weekend to test out, and I was honestly quite impressed - surprised even. With only a few minor tweeks one can make this already excellent machine great for gaming. Though, honestly, if it's to be used SOLELY for gaming I'd suggest looking for a Windows computer. But for something all purpose AND gaming this is a pretty sweet machine."
