Whilst we were perusing the specs for a new MacBook Pro, we noticed that there is now a more powerful graphics card option. There's also a new customer SSD upgrade kit for the Mac Pro.
We have had a week to put the new MacBook Pros through their paces. What better task than to send the 13” and 15” inch to work straight out of the box on a real broadcast editing job. Were they fast?

We haven't read a decent review yet of the new MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar and Final Cut Pro X. A lot of tyre kicking and speculation, but no details on exactly what features work with FCPX and this new tool. So we tasked Chris Roberts with the job of testing and documenting what you can, and cant do with the new Touch Bar and FCPX. We think he's got screengrabs of just about everything!
