    I want to buy a new MacBook Pro 13".
    My question is, is there any point or use with the touchbar I don't do any graphic design or movie/music editing.
    So any advice about the MacBook with touchbar vs MacBook without the touchbar. Pro and cons.

    With Touchbar: a little more power. Without Touchbar: cheaper and slightly better battery life.

    Based on your usage I'd go for the one without Touchbar.

    At first, I was indifferent to it when I ordered, but as it turns out..I use it more and more by the day. Is it a necessity? absolutely not. Is it ridiculously fun to use? absolutely. I don't even want to go back to a traditional keyboard layout - that's how much I'm enjoying this thing. I love the volume slider, the ability to scrub a song/video right there, keyboard suggestions, customizing the buttons like screen lock, exc.
    I utilize the 15" and it's worth it but on the 13"..I..would probably just get the base config (non TB) and upgrade the storage a little bit.

    Good luck with whatever you choose!
