New Year,  New Adventures.   One of my first ones for 2017 is to try to use a Mac for a skunk works project that I am starting this year.    The Mac is just a better platform for video and audio editing which I will be doing a bunch of for this project.

MacBook Pro 2016 Model

Today I unboxed my new Mac Book Pro 2016 model with the highly touted touch bar and touch id.   The model I choose cost more than a down payment on a house but it is loaded up.   It boasts the following features:

  • Touch Bar and Touch ID
  • 2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz
  • 16GB 2133MHz memory
  • 2TB PCIe-based SSD
  • Radeon Pro 460 with 4GB memory
  • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
  • Backlit Keyboard (English) & User’s Guide

My first mac was a Macintosh computer way back in the early 90’s and I have always had one lying around but never really adapted it for day to day use.  In 2017 I am going to try to change that with this macbook.     I’ll let you know in about 30 days if I have adopted it for more than the graphic and audio editing that I need to do with it.
