Hi guys, I just bought a few days ago a new 2017 Macbook Pro 15 with touchbar, 2.9GHz i7, Radeon 560, 16Gb RAM and 512Gb SSD. I’ve just switched over to Macs after almost 30 years of PC life. I started moving to the Apple ecosystem almost four years ago, first with an iPad, then with an iPhone and recently with the wireless iPods. This was the last piece of the puzzle. I have an IT background, so switching over was not such a big issue. I’ve been also playing arround with my wife’s Macbook 12 that I bought her about two years ago. Here are some of my very early impressions based on just a few days usage: 2nd gen butterfly keyboard: Being used to mechanical keyboards I can say it’s not as bad as I would have thought. I can actually type pretty fast on it with very few mistakes. It’s a lot better than the 1st gen that I have on my wife’s 2016 Macbook 12. Touchbar: While I don’t find it particularity useful, I don’t mind it. I use it ocasionaly and I think it adds a nice look to the notebook. Touch ID is amazing and I don’t know how I’ve been living without it. Trackpad: While I’ve seen many complaints about it’s size, it’s fine for me. It has not generaly interfiered with my typing experience and it’s nice for the gestures. Thunderbolt 3 ports: Although I still have many USB-A peripherals, I have ordered a Caldigit TS3+ dock for when I’m docked in the office. When I’m mobile I’ll be using an Apple digital adapter that offers me a USB-A, HDMI and charge port in a single adapter. So I don’t actually mind moving to USB-C. It’s a compact and fast connector for the future Battery: Battery life basn’t been excellent, but not crap either. After finnishing with all the installing, updating and syncing I’ve been getting 6-7 hours per charge with brightness set to about 40%. I’m still investingating this and it’s quite early to have a definitive verdict on the battery life. Speakers: speakers are excelent; loud and clear; one of the best speakers I’ve had and heard in a notebook. I’m a little bit concerned about the storage space as I’ve already filled up 350Gb of the 500Gb. But I have everything I need right now and the rest is work space. I can still ofload some of the data to external storage if needed, so I’m not in real danger. But next one will definitely be a 1Gb unit just to be on the safe side. I’m currently rebuilding my office setup based on the Macbook. It will be used in clamshell mode in a Twelve South BookArc holder connected to a Caldigit TS3+ dock. It will be hooked to three external DELL displays (one 27” 4K in the middle with two 25” 2.5K on the sides), external LG bluray burner, Das Keyboard Professional 4 mechanical keyboard, Logitech MX Master mouse, LAN netwok and Canon multifunction printer. I’ll come back with info once the setup is complete.
