Coming Soon for Review: 2017 MacBook Pro
Coming soon for review courtesy of B&H Photo is the 2017 Apple MacBook Pro 3.1 GHz / 16GB / 1TB / AMD Radeon Pro 560 (4GB DDR5).

While I'd prefer the 2TB SSD, the 1TB model is my recommended top-end system for most users since even on my photographic trips lasting 10 days or so, I found 1TB enough. Videographers should definitely opt for the 2TB SSD model. Other users may find the 512GB SSD model acceptable, the capacity is just too too low for my needs. The things I strongly recommend are the fastest CPU and GPU and 16GB is mandatory for this class machine.
I’ll be revisiting the whole adapter hassle issue, this time putting the MacBook Pro to field use and seeing just how much I dislike that need to use adapters when working in the field, as well as whether the improved display and speed flip me over the tipping point. A pity there is as yet no mainstream USB-C external battery for powering it off the grid.
