I saw this concept from Laptop Mag and thought the idea was intriguing. The MBP needs a minimized bezel like the Dell XPS, but still retains the camera in the right spot.

The white menu bar could wrap around the camera bezel like the iPhoneX, but I don't know if enough menu items would fit. Maybe the menu items could end up on the touch bar? Interesting.

Similarly the Apple watch could finally be outfitted with a camera, which is the only the thing holding me back from replacing my phone when I go out.

I'd prefer a rectangular screen - there isn't the same size issue as with the phone. And while we're at it let's keep the screen on the iPad rectangular too.

It looks awesome and they should do that. Dell has already done something similar and it looks stunning.

But then they would have four different 13-inch laptops...

Are you talking about the XPS / infinity-edge screen?

Yes. Now, the cost of that is moving the camera down to the bottom (called the nose camera since you know why). However, I never face time on my laptop so it doesn't matter. If I ever switched from MacOS, that would be the laptop for me.

I can’t imagine visual/creative types being completely happy with having that notch dip into their canvas.

Really, they’ve put a notch in every product? The watch doesn’t even have a camera yet! I am 100% for the rounded screen with consistent bezels, but this is not that and I don’t think it’s what we’ll see them do.
