I hate to say it but the screens in Apple's new 15" MacBook Pro suck. I went through THREE 15" MacBook Pros last November/December. The panels on the 2016's were not uniform — not in brightness or in color. One side was pinkish the other side blueish. It also felt like the middle was brighter than the rest of the screen. Completely underwhelming and disappointing. I returned them all within the 14 days. My hope was that things would change with the updated models this past June, but alas, no such luck. Check out the pics I took this evening at the Apple Store. Every model in the store is like this. I took these with my iPhone 7 and they are representative of what you see in person. Given my experience, more likely than not, you'll get a model with these characteristics. Blah. I've read posters comment on how uniformity in IPS displays is an issue. Well not on mine, or the 2015 15" models I've seen both in the store and at work, by comparison to the new design with the P3 color gamut. The previous generation screen is more uniform and consistent across the display, with one caveat that some received panels that were too warm. I observed that the new 13" MBP screens were better. I've been considering the 13-inch. It's more portable. But... I have a late 2013 15" MBP. My battery is healthy and everything works fine. I was itching to upgrade and for more memory too (only have 8GB) and quad-core to dual-core... Now I'm like "meh" not so much. I've been toying with the idea of getting the 2015 15" MBP that Apple still sells. At least I'd be doubling my memory. Hopefully Apple will adopt OLED displays sooner than later. It's rumored to be in the works. Maybe it'll come out this fall with a model that supports 32GB of RAM? The energy cost savings borne from OLED displays might offset the increased power consumption of DDR4 desktop-class memory. We'll see. I like the new 15" design but I feel like its marque feature — the display — is such a compromise.
