The MacBook Pro 2016 seems to have very little left to brag about after it came out, addressing the highly negative feedback that many have come to finalize. That being said, it was almost natural for some to opt for the next best thing if left with displease for the said hardware.

As some may know, Apple's MacBook Pro 2016 lacked so many factors that many thought to be essential and practical, to begin with. However, Apple's mistake may have been making the particular piece of hardware a little too focused on the design rather than functionality. One entry that is said to step forward, in this case, is the Microsoft's Surface Pro 5, which could alter the said negativity.

According to recent reports, the MacBook Pro 2016 does not come with a touch screen which somewhat turned off some users alike, though some found it quite nifty. A touch bar is placed across the top of the row, replacing all the function keys. The said feat acts well when browsing through applications selected by the user, and the people behind the US-based tech company has the perfect reason.

As the release of the MacBook Pro 2016 points to being one of the most awaited Apple products to date, the lack of touchscreen has been the plan of the company, says Philip Schiller. The present Apple Senior Vice President said that it does not feel right for them to do so, and that they have already experienced the downsides of it. Simply put, Schiller said that if the Mac is to be made a touchscreen, it becomes tricky to feel the intuitive effect from the touchscreen itself.

Because of this, some reports say that there are those already looking forward to the Surface Pro 5 by Microsoft, which at this point may be another contender. This, however, is not entirely a certainty but is still an option to highly put into consideration to go up against the MacBook Pro 2016.

Will the MacBook Pro 2016 find success this early? Or it will shrink into technological oblivion? Stay locked for more updates here at GamenGuide.
