2017 Kaby Lake Macbook Pro

Let's have a look at the 2017 MacBook Pro KabyLake unit.

A couple of months ago I did the below blog/video, showing not only what I run on my MBP, and how, but also the general performance of the 2016 MacBook Pro Touchbar (I.e. The Sky Lake one).

What's on my Macbook Pro?

I've now picked up the 2017 Kaby Lake equivalent - albeit the higher specification retail unit (The 2.9Ghz i7/512Gb SSD). I thought it would be useful to have a look at the performance of that - you can see that below.

Quick summary:

  • 2016 didn't feel like a massive step up from my 2015.
  • The 2017 does feel a fair bit quicker in general use than the 2016.
  • The weird battery performance I was getting on the 2016 unit seems to be gone.

Anyways, video below.
