 Hands on commentary on the 13” and 15”  USB-C Retina MacBook Pro we have in stock.  Thunderbolt 3 docks have arrived.
The 2016/17 MacBook Pros sure deliver in two areas…..drive speeds are off the charts in Black Magic Speed test….2-3 GB per second. The real treat is the improved screen. Doing side by side with my previous generation Retina….the new one is brighter with better 
colour and real “pop” comparable to that of the 5k iMac.
1/2 a lb lighter, ….really a treat for photography…There are no other ports – we have the dongles tho and the fantastic OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock.
99596FAC-3A8E-4D03-B429-2503EC40146FAll monitors except the exceptional USB-C only LG 4k and 5k screens will require adapters.
Two USB-C native monitors to choosed from but at 500 
nits the LG screens are spectacular with very accurate colour.  However there are adapters to HDMi and VGA – lots of support periperipherals are coming. 
If screen quality, drive responsiveness and to some degree weight are priorities…then by all means have a serious look.
The 2016/17s are eye candy in a number of ways. We are VERY impressed with the 13” entry level Retina – value for money is exceptional and they are very capable of light pro work. Big time step up from an Air which they will replace in terms of screen and drive speeds/
 
The 15” screen is spectacular with bright vivid colours500 nits puts it on a par with the 5k iMac!.The 2015 Retina laptop screen was no slouch at 303 nits…the 2016/17 screen alone is worth the price of entry.
I found the larger trackpad a bit hard to get used to. I don’t use gestures etc so much is lost on me. The OLED bar is sensitive and easy to get used to. The backlit keys are a whole level up in looks and easy to adapt to. It is lighter than the 2015 tho 13” 2016 felt very light – almost like an Air.
The USB-C 15”  is a work of art .. Just looks and feels Pro. Gone is the backlit Apple logo. As with the 13” the drive speeds are insane. Battery long lasting if if smaller and charges really fast. Last but not least…the sound quality and fullness is incredible. Pop Netflix to full screen and get lost in the image clarity and sound field. Welcome to the future.

 MacPro 3.7 current  14426
Perfect even for Pro audio or almost anything else and many prefer dual smaller monitors and that is so easy with this model. Far and away the most horsepower for the money of anything around. with 8 processing threads that’s a lot of ooomph. Lower price too. This will run two additional monitors up to 27” each as well.
 
This model is powered by a 22 nm, 64-bit “Fourth Generation” Intel Mobile Core i7 “Haswell” (4770S) processor with quad cores (four independent processor cores on a single silicon chip, each with one thread). Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache and all processor cores share a single 8 MB level 3 cache. It also supports Turbo Boost 2.0 (up to 3.9 GHz) — which “automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload” (so if an application is only using one of the four cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores) — and “Hyper Threading” — which allows the system to recognize eight total “cores” or “threads” (four real and four virtual).
Hot category – huge power upper end MacPro 12 core 5,1 loaded and the prices have dropped on both the 3.33 Hex core with 12 processing threads and TurboBoost to 3.6 gHz.

Who we are
Supporting the Canadian Mac community since 1985!
We’re now into MacDoc’s 31st year supporting the Canadian Mac Community and that mostly enjoyable occupation has been a central feature for the latter part of my 6 decades.
Had coffee with my very first client from back then – still buying Macs from his favorite source and swapping family life tales.

Thanks to all for their support over the years ..send friends!

3 Score and ten ??? ….Oct marks my 70th birthday yeah some mornings it feels like it but on the open road with my pretty red Honda CBF1000 or travelling the Scottish backroads with my Australian partner, it remains a very satisfying run. Nearly half that span I’ve been in the Mac biz and still have my first client from 32 years ago. From the FatMac to to an SE30 with fangs, the 6100AV and the Bondi Blue iMac and the “weaponized G4” that put Apple back on track it’s been exciting. Today’s Macs are breathtaking and tho Steve is missed Apple’s design team brings us amazing tools that are a pleasure to use. Thanks for all those years supporting MacDoc….a few more to come then and then I’ll bow out slowly and let a new generation continue. Send Friends
