Apple Bumps Up the MacBook

B&H Photo has the new Apple MacBook available for pre-order. The prior MacBook models have rebates up to $200 OFF.
MPG benefits when your order anything through B&H, thank you.

My review of the 2015 MacBook is still highly relevant, but there are modest improvements in the April 2016 MacBook “bump”:

  • About 15% faster CPU performance (claimed)
  • Faster SSD, slightly faster memory, faster graphics.
  • 8GB memory standard (disappointing not to have 16GB option).
  • Claimed +1 hour longer runtime (41.4 Wh battery which is 10% more watt-hours along with more efficient Skylake CPU.
  • DISAPPOINTING: does NOT have Thunderbolt 3 + USB-C port; still has only one (1) USB-C port for all expansion needs.

I liked/like the MacBook for what it is, but I would never confuse it for my laptop of choice, the 2015 MacBook Pro Retina 2.98 GHz 16GB / 1TB / M370X, albeit a model I hope to see supplanted by a Thunderbolt 3 model with an OLED wide gamut display.

More ports on the MacBook

OWC’s USB-C Dock may be the ticket for port expansion, given the single USB-C port. OWC also has USB-C cables.
