New MacBook Pro Hate is Off the Charts

Apple unveiled a new MacBook Pro and Apple fans hate it.

I can't remember a new Apple product that got hated as much as the new MacBook Pro. Apple thinks the new MacBook Pro is a touch of genius. Apple's professional users do not think so at all.

The new MacBook Pro is thinner in excels the previous MacBook Pro in all aspects, but it is not enough for power users. The MacBook Pro with its interesting, but limited Touch Bar has become a premium laptop for casual users. The Verge calls the MacBook Pro a lie.

Power users have always complained about the limited hardware performance of MacBooks. Apple has always released new hardware that does not have the CPU and graphics performance of premium Windows laptops. The new MacBook Pro is not different. Another thing that power users complain about is the removal of all ports. The MacBook Pro only has USB-C ports.

Users need get adapters to connect legacy system. Apple has cut the prices of adapters until end of the year to increase acceptance in that area.

What it all comes down to is, that the new MacBook Pro is not the upgrade current Apple MacBook Pro users have been waiting for. It even comes with a new pain of having to use adapters to connect peripherals. The Touch Bar is not important enough to get this new MacBook Pro.

There will actually be a lively market for the previous generation MacBook Pro laptops, especially the ones with the highest hardware specifications.

Apple has disappointed an important customer group. Power users are influencers. Now they are stumped and can't just flat out recommend the newest MacBook Pro line-up. My advise is to score a deal on a 2015 MacBook Pro in Black Friday sales if you need a new laptop. Not even the new entry-level 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar is recommendable. Apple did not give it the same CPU and graphics options as the Touch Bar models.
