The new MacBook Pro isn’t even in our sweaty palms yet, and already it’s not only broken Apple’s previous pro notebook records, but also generated more revenue than any other notebook released in 2016.

In data released by research firm Slice Analytics, the MacBook Pro has already almost quadrupled the sales the Microsoft Surface Book racked up over the past year — as well as generating 78 percent of the revenue the 12-inch MacBook has generated since April 10, 2015.

Slice’s analytics data comes from more than 4.4 million online shoppers.

While Apple has yet to release sales figures for the new MacBook Pro, earlier this week we heard that Apple has reportedly boosted supply chain orders for its new laptops after “not initially [being] very aggressive.”

Although a vocal minority of users have been complaining about the new MacBook Pro’s giant price tag and lack of innovation, it seems that this sentiment has certainly not swayed the majority of customers.
