With most holding varying opinions on the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro, the 12-inch model has somehow been pushed back a bit.
Seen as the Apple laptop best for folks looking for a lightweight solution to turn to, performance and price disparity issues could stand in the way.
Like the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro 2017 models, the 12-inch variant got a bit of a speed boost with the Intel Kaby Lake chip upgrade, faster solid-state drives and a slightly bumped Intel integrated HD 615 GPU.
The 12-inch MacBook Pro 2017 was put to the test and benchmark tests returned a 26-percent increase in CPU performance and 50-percent bump compared to the 2016 model, Apple Insider reported.
With the performance of the 12-inch MacBook Pro proven as expected, the next thing that comes to mind is how long the device can last and maintain the optimal performance.
Worth noting is that this variant is fanless which means heat dissipation concerns will factor in. Hence, the need to throttle down the processor would be needed, meaning lowered performance.
All that would initially seem disappointing with most wanting sustained performance on their MacBook Pro. But as mentioned earlier, this is an ultraportable machine not made for long hauls and performing daily tasks.
