The MacBook Pro 2016 is Apple's latest laptop model. It has been widely anticipated months prior its release primarily because of Apple's lack of a new laptop for quite some time. When the MacBook Pro 2016 got released, it got mixed reaction from the market. Lots of people did love that Apple has finally refreshed its line of laptops. However, not everyone has been 100 percent happy with what the MacBook Pro has to offer. In fact, the new Apple laptop has even been compared to a bunch of other brands, including underrated devices like Lenovo hybrids. One of the best models that can pretty much compete with Apple's premium device is probably the Lenovo Yoga 910. Here's a quick overview and comparison between the MacBook Pro and the Yoga 910.
