    Small percentage..thats bs. I've owned a 2016 nTB, 2017 15", and just went back to a 13" Touch Bar 2016. All of them had to have the keyboard replaced....I'm not a nitpick person either. If it wasn't for the warranty replacement plan I'd never consider getting a MacBook with this keyboard.

    Apple had to make sure they could rape you on pricing seeing as the school season is starting, tho you may bet a larger screen, touch bar, touch id and a t2 chip. Tho some t2 chip machines are experiencing kernel panics. Personally I love my 12in Macbook.

    What is the difference between the 1.4GHz processor and the 2.4Ghz processor?
    Is it a different version of the i5? Which one?

    Finally, some good news.

    Nice to see True Tone on the Air as well.

    A large enough percentage of them are faulty that Apple officially extended the warranty on them for an additional two years. People are right to be wary of these keyboards.

    Or, just maybe, your perception of how people use the Touch Bar doesn't quite match up with reality.

    But 9th generation Intel processors have been around for months.

    Because a lot of us who use these computers also code. And coding without physical buttons is complete crap. And the way you can tell that the Touchbar is a lame gimmick is look at the number of Chinese knockoff makers who copied it. Guess how many did? Yep, zero.

    A doubt is a doubt, and of course it's acceptable, but you stated that as a fact. Not only you are wrong, but you offended a forum member in the process, for no reasons.

    Ive is out, the CAT is out of the bag.

    SSD prices are still high, needs to be adjusted, gotta start at 256GB.

    Only two thunderbolt ports? this is weird ... do not think $1999 will sell well.

    lol this is never going to happen. Developers HATE, I repeat WE HATE, the Touchbar. Asking users to look down at the keyboard on a laptop is the stupidest ****ing thing I've seen Apple do in a long time.

    only the 45 Watts part, not the 35/28/15 watts parts NOT yet ... there is already soft launch of 10th Gen CPUs.

    Have to ask to make my wife happy. It was ordered less than 12 hours ago, so who knows....rather ask than sleep in the garage with my dog!

    Yeah, just like the problems with the butterfly keyboards were overstated and isolated to MR forums and reddit. OK!

    Boy did they gimp that MacBook "Pro" processor.....1.4 ghz? Wow. For a "pro" machine? (shake of the head).

    Amazing how they gimped it. I just re-read the specs to make sure I wasn't looking at the Air.

    Anyone else notice that they copy and pasted the bit about the truetone on the MacBook Air in this MacBook Pro post? Or am I half asleep?

    Hmmm, zero Chinese knockoff makers copied it? I guess that makes sense, since there are approximately zero Chinese Mac knockoffs.

    I love my current old MB pro 2014. With 16gb RAM it is still going strong. This version is tempting. I'm in two minds whether to upgrade or wait until next year. Time will tell.

    Yes, you should do that. In the U.S., Best Buy has 14-day return period on computers.

    Well, Apple's macbook lineup makes more sense than yesterday, everything is more up to date, more streamlined and even with a cheaper baseline that makes sense.

    Someone at Apple really is caring more. Now... just scissor those pesky butterflies and everything well be OK.
