I wrote here a few times, while waiting for my maxed-out 13" touchbar (3.3.ghz i7, 16GB). Mainly bitching over the unimpressive specs and crazy stupid price. Now I've had it, here's a quick review. The good : - Compiles my project 2.5 times faster than my 2.9Ghz i5, 8GB 13"MBP of 2016. Also cost 1.5 times the price though. Generally fast and powerful. - Silent - Beautiful, looks very solid The neutral: - It's smaller / lighter, but I only don't feel the difference at all. The bad: - The keyboard. Oh dear, that stupid keyboard. Horrible. - Almost got broken 2 times the first week due to the absence of magsafe (I have a dog and a toddler). Now I have to keep it unplugged almost everywhere in the house in fear. You will miss the magsafe. - Speaking of charging, this battery is crap and definitely not 10 hours. - When waking from sleep, external screen doesn't turn on. You need to unplug & re-plug it (checked on LG ultrafine and also at home with the adapter on another screen). - Speaking of adapters : This is ****ing AWFUL. The pain of living & looking like that, so in 2-3 years you'll be able to say "hey look I don't need adapters" to people with a PC (who probably won't need an adapter either, since they have USB-c in addition to normal ports), is way too real. - The adapters are expensive and crappy. The official HDMI one for instance can't do 4k @60hz, and I can't charge my phone from the integrated USB port. I have to use the separate USB-C to USB one... Ridiculous - I mean, for real, have you ever seen what a USB key on an adapter looks like ? Jesus. - Screen is ok but nothing impressive. At that price, 4k would have been nice. Or OLED. Or both - The price. a bit over 4000$ for this thing and its adapters, it's just idiotic. - The touchbar isn't very useful but maybe I just don't "get it". All in all, a disappointing product. If you can stand the horror that is Windows ( or if you can handle a Linux distrib ), just do that. I know it's my last MBP.
