When we received it, the Touch Bar version of the Apple 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016) box felt like it was made of lighter more eco-friendly material than traditional Apple packaging. The top of the box printing also had strange dark bands which had not been visible when we opened the non-Touch Bar version in this review. Not sure if these bands were deliberate but it did make the box a bit odd looking. These bands are only found on the top part of the box cover.
The analog 3.5mm audio port is still kept on the right hand side of the Mac.
Another interesting new experience with the Touch Bar version of the Apple 13" MacBook Pro (Late 2016), is that when the lid was opened, the protective cover was very stuck to the screen (especially on the bottom) while the Mac automatically started up. This presented an odd non-Apple like initial experience.
