Hello! I want to share my pluses and minuses review. So I bought tbMBP 15'' 2016 Radeon Pro 450 512 Gb SSD version as it appeared at sale. Previously I was using macbook air 2013 128 gb SSD 8 gb RAM version for 3.5 years. I use notebook for my studies, programming and reverse engineering (in Windows). As time passed I saw a lot of disadvantages of my purchase. At first Apple totally ****ed up with claimed battery life of my notebook. When I was at Air I could program and web serf all the day(8-11 hours). My Pro works from 5 to 6 hours the same scenario. Apple claimed 10 hours. I had crazy UI lags in internal graphic mode till summer 2017 at actions like scrolling pdf files, web site scrolling and other actions(mission control, etc.). My investiogations and thoughts sum up - Intel didn't create CPU with iGPU like Iris Pro like it had i7 family from 2013-2015. The performance of new gen graphics too low for display resolution. I spent a lot of money on my notebook and had performance in usual actions much worse then previously had with air. Even 300 bucks win trashbooks perform better. At summer the update made situation much, much better, but I see lags even now. As time passed burn marks appeared in two screen marks... I don't understand the USB-C cable made of cheapest plastic(too rigid). I don't understand why doesnt Apple logo lights. My macOS and some apps freezes from time to time just like Windows. I had no such problems at Air. Keyboard is too loud for me to type during lectures))) I don't like that keys stroke. It is too short. I like design, screen quality for my eyes, weight and sound. I could forgive every ****ing point of my review but touchbar.... It kills my neurons. Imagine that you have a beautiful fit girlfriend you love with all strength of your soul. You like having sex with her without condom. But then situation dramatically changed. After the change you lose your love. Instead of her somebody tells you have to be in sex with fat, stupid, NOT-NOT beautiful woman you dont like at all. I see the situation at this perspective. I constantly have to work with ESC and FUNC keys to save my time (especially at my Windows software while dissassembling: millions of actions the couldn't be done without fn keys ( I don't count several times clicks in UI to perform one action as possible scenario)). So now I have to: -IF I want to perform fn key action --Change look from screen to touchbar(I cant find presicely the FX key without error if I won't look at keyboard) ---- IF touchbar isn't lighting I should perform one click to turn it on -------find key ----------touch it --------------while having no tactile response I should hope the action has performed ------------------change look from touchbar to screen: IS ****ING ONE ACTION from millions of actions I do during my workflow was done or no. If no.... I should repeat. ESC key often misclicked while working in VIM. Need for changing the look and having no tactile response is "killer feature" of this crap. Is there any advantage of touchbar? Why I used to eat the ****? I can't use Windows but using macOS with touchbar for me amounts to it. This world became crazy because some guys(marketing guys) sell you honey with **** at great amount of money. You used to eat honey, without it you will die(it's your only food). But you ask them please sell me honey without the **** at double price. They tell you: it's impossible(non-tb 15'' mbp analogy). This purchase made me watch the world at another angle. Front-wheels BMWs, touchbar macbooks and a lot of different things that are ****, but people eat it because it is fashionable. I lost 1/2 price of the machine. I want to change it. But there is no option for me at the market. It drives me crazy and I want to literally kill every crazy man that tells me that touchbar option is innovation. I wrote here because I hope some guy from Apple will read it and change it(I know probability theory). While buying it I was afraid about touchbar, but choosing between old and new gear I chose new, it was my error. P.S. I live in Russia and I paid 190 000 rubles for it. Avg salary here is 30 000 rubles (300 bucks)))))) P.S. 2 With respect to you guys, this post is my emotional outlet.
