Late 2016 MacBook Pro capped at 16GB RAM because batteries

Apple’s MacBooks, be they the Pro, normal, or Air variety, have always been praised for their slim and light designs, relatively speaking.

Apple has taken flak for the laptop’s 16 GB RAM limit, which power users have analyzed and criticized to no end.

MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Review (late-2016)

Anticipation is a dangerous thing, and expectations around the long-awaited redesign of the Apple MacBook Pro for late 2016 were almost preternaturally high. Beloved workhorse of graphic designers, video editors, coders, and others wedded to the macOS ecosystem, any change to the MacBook Pro was going to be contentious.
