Does the new TB Macbook Pro smell like new Apple products used to smell?

    New Apple products always have this special smell – not a bad one, I pretty much like it.
    If you ever bought a new Apple product before you'll know what I mean. This moment when you open the box for the first time, you'll smell it…it goes away after a few days, but you will remember it.

    My Macbook order is still "processing items", so I probably I won't get it before Dec 6.

    This is why I am asking you guys who already received their new Macbook Pro with Touch Bar:
    How does it smell?

    It smells better than that candle but not as good as the 2005 iPod, that was a particular vintage. Although this one has the added benefit of being able to touch it up whilst smelling it.

    Are you going to return it if you don't like the smell?
    Please, say yes...

    This this and this! I also got the 2005 iPod, and the new smell of that one was strong and you smelled it for a while, especially if you have it in an enclosed space.

    Hey this is a serious question :p
    Have you ever unboxed a brand-new Apple product? Then you'll know what I mean ;)

    Haha I am afraid to say that I want this Macbook too much that I won't be able to return it :)

    The guy who's going to sniff his macbook for 2h before opening it and sniffing again the keys and then opening it further and sniffing the internals.

    Hmmmm :D

    I will. I'm not paying 3000€ for a computer that doesn't smell like it used to.
