Just thought i'd share my experience with the new MacBook Pro. It was the first time with significant experience with the new design with Touch Bar. As you can judge by the title, overall, it wasn't for me. I was and still am using my late 2013 MBP. I don't mean to crap on the new MBP, i just hope this helps others make a better decision for their future purchase. Things that i really liked: -Touch ID made it really convenient to log in -Lighter weight and narrower profile -USB-C (though i admit i have absolutely no USB-C devices yet. It was cool from a future proof standpoint) -Ability to charge from both sides -Audio from built in speakers was really good compared to my late 2013 Things i didn't like much: -Lighter weight and thinner profile mentioned above means less variety of ports, only USC-B and a headphone jack, and almost guarantees the use of dongles which annoy the crap out of me. My SD slot is used frequently. -USB-C charging and the loss of Mag Safe. The new MBP fell off my torso and onto my soft bed and partially landed on the USB-C, no noticeable damage but too many of those and i don't think it'll fare well. -Touch Bar is a gimmick. It doesn't solve anything or make anything better, it may make some specialized tasks a tiny bit easier (just an assumption, i have not experienced anything that was made easier), but it makes a few really common tasks, such as adjusting volume and screen brightness, really annoying. The Touch Bar can be difficult/impossible to see in certain positions. -Keyboard is annoyingly loud. I love the keyboard on my late 2013. The Touch Bar was the ultimate reason that kept me on the fence about the upgrade. I really wanted to love it. I've been an Apple fan boy since 1998 when my mother bought me my first Mac (iMac). But since it was day 14 and i was still within the return window, i felt i need to return it and give it more thought.
