I've been on the fence about which computer to get, but I'm getting closer - now mostly waiting on the 'back to school' deals. I would like the tbMBP, because better processor, ports on each side, and touch ID. I'm ambivalent about the touchbar, but willing to get Better Touch Tool and figure out how to make it work for me. But I plan on keeping this computer for 6+ years, and the lack of mention of touchbar development during WWDC, no mention of touchbar in the discussion of High Sierra, no mention of a touchbar on a standalone keyboard makes me wonder ... is Apple not committed to the technology? And if Apple doesn't make use of the touchbar, and doesn't expand it to other models, will it just become an unsuported waste of space - in which case ... five years from now, will we wish we had those buttons back? I guess no one can predict the answer, but the discussion might be helpful.
