It seems that notebooks and smartphones have continuously become thinner and lighter. Some may see this as a good thing, but many others accuse company’s of sacrificing quality for size.
Let’s take the recent MacBook Pro for example. This author owns the 13-inch version with the Touch Bar and loves the device. For a writer, it’s a perfect combination of portability, power, sound, and typing. It’s also great for editing photos using Photoshop.
However, it also seems like the device should have been an upgrade to the MacBook Air line rather than the MacBook Pro. The new MacBook Pro has received some mixed reviews from different media outlets.
“I may come off sounding quite critical of the new MacBook Pro, but the truth is that I really do like it. The hardware is incredible, macOS is a joy to use, and I don’t want to give up this screen and keyboard.
It’s a fantastic laptop on build alone. But everywhere I look, it feels like this incarnation of the MacBook Pro is shooting for a future it can’t quite reach,” claimed Jacob Kastrenakes of the Verge, adding that Apple had to sacrifice a lot of important things.
