This device is a BTO/CTO device which is nearly identical to MLH12LL/A. We have listed this device separately as it has been configured with an upgraded processor when compared to the base model. This has been done to make it easier to catalog as well as easier to read.

Introducing the latest and greatest models of the Apple MacBook Pro lineup, these are released in Late 2016 and continue till 2017 with a minor revamp. The powerhouse behind this a1706 device is a Core i7, 6TH Generation “Skylake” 3.3 GHz processor which featured both an integrated graphics card as well as the opportunity for a dedicated card. A Butterfly Mechanism keyboard is incorporated into the MacBook Pro to allow users to have a comfortable experience while typing.

This is an improvement from previous designs and provides a signature feel to all Apple devices. This model is only offered in two colors, either silver or space gray. There are no USB ports provided on this device with only 2 Thunderbolt “3” ports provided with the intention for Apple to lead the adoption of USB C-type devices.
