I owned a 2016 Macbook 12" and sold it just before the new 2016 MacBooks came out to buy the new Pro. I was able to purchase a base Macbook Pro 2016 in an Apple store. The good - screen is definitely better/brighter and the new space grey looks great. The undecided - I'm not sure the reduced size is of any benefit. I suppose its a bit easier to transport but its really not night and day like the 12" is to the rest of the product line. Like many other posts they should have maintained the previous size and more ports. The bigger trackpad seemed like a great new feature but in real use not so much for me. The bad - 1 port on my macbook 12" is bad but almost expected based on the size. 2 ports on the pro is not good when compared to the old unit. I hate the keyboard even more on the new Pro than my 12" - some say its improvement over the 12" but not for me. I found the enter key to be extremely clicky and loud, and it annoyed the hell out of me. The price is whacked - I am in Canada and over $1900 for the base unit with what I got is no way worth it. Needless to say I returned the 2016 Pro unit and went back to the 12" and couldn't be happier, especially having some extra money in my pocket. Yes I am missing out on the power and slightly larger screen size but I am ok waiting slightly longer for the same tasks to complete. I really didn't find anything the 12" couldn't handle. Unfortunately for now I am tied to the mac ecosystem as I hate Windows hardware compared to Apple. I definitely don't like where Apple is heading however as this is the first new product line that I have returned within days.
