For those who are defending it, that's fine (However, I find it amusing that some of these are the same people who think that a MacBook Air or a MacBook is a perfectly fine substitute ). I have been waiting for years for an actually decent MacBook Pro. Why, you may ask? Because the dedicated GPU's in the MacBook Pro's since 2012 were absolute ****. Whether it's throttling, horrible performance for the dollar, a likely cause for the 2012-2013 models (And possibly 2014 and '15) to crap out, or a combination of all of the above. But instead, ol' wise Tim Cook made even more problems: 1. The Touch Bar is an ABSOLUTE GIMMICK. When I use my computer, I type while looking at the screen. I already know the shortcuts. Now with the Touch Bar, Apple imagines me looking down, then up? At best, I will have gotten used to one format, but will most likely have to change things around (ex. Using Adobe Premiere Pro), and will have to adjust yet again. This deters my workflow. What if I also want to use BootCamp? What even happens to that Touch Bar? Do I get a function row at least? Or is that all blanked out? If it's the latter, **** you. 2. Why is Apple insistent on using this keyboard? Granted, it's second generation and they said that one thing improved is the "feel of key travel." But why not just stick with the keyboard everyone liked? Transitioning from one that was universally praised, to one that is controversial at best, is a head scratcher. 3. Oh God, why do you shrink the batteries from 74.9 to 49.2 watt-hours, and from 99.5 watt-hours to 74 (For the 13 and 15" respectively)? I understand that there is a 99.9-100 watt-hour limitation because of flights and electronic devices possibly Samsung'ing, but WHY? The 13" and 15" MacBook Pro's were PERFECT in their dimensions. If you had kept the same sized batteries with the amazing efficiency from going from HASWELL and Broadwell to Skylake, that would've easily been 12+ hours of battery life. But instead, you had to go through with your obsessiveness to make devices as skinny as possible. 4. MagSafe. I can say that this was without a doubt the BEST LAPTOP CHARGER! It was easy to connect, no harm in scratching the laptop, and I didn't have to worry about the computer dragging. NO LONGER. WHY?! This was the gold standard, and you take it away??? 5. For shame to differentiate MacBook PRO's by the number of ports, rather than power. This is the sleeziest thing. How is a two-port computer targeted for any PRO? Especially when I have to use one port for charging? Do you want me to buy an insanely heavy and large block of an adapter? 6. When will Apple ever put a decent dGPU? Seriously. The M370X was an absolute joke. The 455 and 460 are bottom-of-the-barrel budget graphics cards released in this generation. I understand that Final Cut Pro works well with AMD cards. Why not the 480? People are paying good money for this, and you have the audacity to charge an extra $200 to go from 455 to 460? Does Apple know that the 480 sells for $250-300?
