What are the issues? If it is a keyboard issue, then just get Apple to fix it. I am one of the few that like the TB, but I do not think it should cost more money tbh. It is nice in the Office suite and being able to control music, etc really easy. However, it does not make a huge difference. Since Apple did not put it in any other computer, I have to think that we will not really see much more development for the TB. It should have at least made its way to other notebooks and maybe a stand alone keyboard. It will be interesting to see where TB goes from here.I have the '16 MBP without the TB and it's having issues. I'm thinking about getting the TB version.
I reckon people said stuff like that when the mouse came out as well, or digital camera, or the car. Some people though just got on with it, just pointed a curser, took a photo and drove.I disliked the Touch Bar so much that I sold my 2017 MacBook Pro after 6 months of ownership. I use function keys a lot in my development work and hated the loss of tactile keys. On the other hand, the Touch Bar was also too easy to hit when I didn't actually want to.
I need a professional laptop, but will not buy another from Apple if it comes with a Touch Bar.
Yea beacause they are all apple products and apple has never innovated successfullyRight. I am sure it is right up there with Google Glass, the Newton, Gull Wing doors on cars and the Nintendo Virtual Boy as tech items we can't live without. That is why everyone is knocking themselves out to copy the idea
It isn't about having a "different view of change"... some changes are good, some are bad, some yet are indifferent. The mouse didn't replace the keyboard.I reckon people said stuff like that when the mouse came out as well, or digital camera, or the car.

Each will have a different view of change.
It’s not worse in everyone’s eyes, just different for a while.
I dont even think there were function keys on the first keyboard, not sure there were even functions.
Shift key was introduced on the Remington No. 2 typewriter.
I get that, but I don't think we can put the touchbar in the same category as the mouse, digital cameras or the car. Those were revolutionary devices for their time and gained widespread adoption. Developers never really developed for the touchbar outside of Better Touch Tool, Apple has done nothing to improve upon it or increase its functionality. They even appear to be abandoning the touchbar, not including it in the new MacBook Air.I’ll keep my powerglove and go play Nintendo.
Just voicing on the plus side for the tb.
Yep - And I've always argued they got it backwards in terms of who the TB most appeals to and benefits and what devices it should be on.They even appear to be abandoning the touchbar, not including it in the new MacBook Air.
I'm curious about the esc key many people mention it missing, are you guys customizing the TB? My 2018 MBP has the esc key I use it a lot sometimes it changes depending what I'm doing. For example, if I'm creating a new calendar entry and decide to cancel it the TB displays Cancel instead of esc.It's gimmick. It does not really improve things due to me having to really check the tb before touching it, yet it removes the essential esc keys and function keys that I use alot from it.
I press the esc key thousands of times a day (editing text in the vi editor) and losing the physical button is a horrible loss for me. The flat, non-tactile, non-haptic Touch Bar is jarring and unpleasant to use. I returned my TB MBP and replaced it with a non-touchbar 13” MBP. My only hope is that this machine lasts long enough for Apple to come to their senses and my next laptop can still be a MacBook Pro.I'm curious about the esc key many people mention it missing,
