“The new MacBook Pro is here, and Slice Intelligence reports that in the first five days of availability online, the latest model generated over seven times the revenue that the MacBook 12-inch did during its April 2015 launch,” Taylor Stanton reports for Slice Intelligence.

Stanton reports, “The new model’s sales already equal 78 percent of all the revenue generated by the MacBook 12-inch since it became available, and has accumulated more revenue than any other laptop this year.”

“Those who ordered the new MacBook Pro look strikingly similar to the early adopters who bought the Apple Watch on release,” Stanton reports. “Over eighty percent of shoppers who bought a MacBook Pro in the first five days release have been men, which is the same gender breakdown that we reported when the Apple Watch was released in April 2015.”
