In all seriousness, I understand people think the tb is a gimmick and some people need more than just USB-C. However, that does not make the 2016 MBP a bad laptop. The only reason I decided to write this thread is because I am seeing too many people that are giving it a bad rep and it does not account for the majority of people are that are content with their Macbooks to include myself. I, as a veteran, understand people are perfectly within their rights to say whatever their hearts desire. And that is exactly what I am doing; to assure people that may be skeptic about getting a new MBP. This is hands down the best laptop I have owned and plan on running it into the ground. I have embraced the "gimmicky" touch bar and use it heavily, type faster with the shorter key travel, bought a USB-A adapter, and enjoy 10+ hours of battery life when not running Windows 10 and am loving every minute of it. I am by no means a fanboy and consider myself to be very rational and pragmatic which is why I felt obligated to speak out against the stigma—which quite frankly will never go away. But that's okay. I hope this post will help any potential buyers feel confident when making their purchase.
