Apple has launched their latest Macbook Pro just a few hours ago and while the new machine, does in a way, exceed any other existing laptop in terms of the technology incorporated. The new machine is truly a beast of a machine in every sense of the word but it seems that Apple has touched the nerve of a lot of people with the new Macbook.
On one hand, many people are complaining about the lack in the number of new specifications in the new Macbook Pro(2016). Make no mistake, the state-of-the-art touch panel is a hit and is way beyond any technology the world has seen in laptops so far. But the lack of more significant updates, USB port issues, missing SD card slots as well as the Apple logo at the back not lighting up anymore. Twitter has gone rampant with hundreds of tweets regarding the new Macbook Pro are tweeted every minute. And its not that it is fair on Apple, but some of them do seem to make sense.
Editors in the Avid group on FB are mega displeased with the new MacbookPro. Lack of ports. F-keys gone.

It’s hilarious that the new MacBook Pro needs dongles for my USB sticks, Thunderbolt hard drive, HDMI TV, and SD card but not my headphones.

I am saddened that the light in the logo died and didn’t make it to the new #MacBookPro. Honestly, that’s almost as bad as losing Steve.

There are many more of where all these came from but on the other hand, what has really made Twitter go rampant is the price of the new Macbook Pro 2016.The new Pro starts at $1,499, but that one doesn’t have a Touch Bar. The 13-inch model that starts at $1,799, or the $2,399 15-inch model and in a majority case, that is an incredible amount of money to shell out for a laptop even for the most dedicated of Apple enthusiasts and people who were looking forward this notebook from Apple. Hilarious posts on twitter regarding this insane pricing has been doing the rounds every minute on Twitter with people subjecting to humour to express their grievances. Have a look.
Finally the mac book pro has become so costly that you can buy a laptop just with the tax https://t.co/HpG13mcPiU

* You buy a new iPhone 7 ($749)
* You buy a new MacBook Pro ($2,000)
* You can’t plug any pair of headphones into both

There are numerous more from where these came from and by the looks of it. this is gonna continue for a long time. That doesn’t take any credit away from Apple though as they might just be able to justify the pricing for this powerhouse machine.
Technology really is getting unaffordable by the day.
