Hey, Purchased a 13" MBP custom order 2.9ghz /16GB / 512GB I'm pretty happy to be honest, it's my 4th MacBook Pro, and I upgraded from a 2012 15" Retina. Great Size Love the size, it's so much easier to carry around, I do use it plugged into an external monitor. I know the 15" is better but prefer the 13" for form factor, I take it home and back to the office everyday so size matters. USB-C Mostly as I use this on my desk or just on my lap with nothing plugged in, I actually find this more convenient as I purchased a MINIX NEO C, USB-C Multiport Adapter https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01N2LYC5P which means I only plug in one cable now. The adaptor works perfect, but I have reservations that'll it'll last a long time. USB-C will mean better 3rd party accessories over a Mac propriateary input. Also charging from either side is nice. Touch ID It's nicer than typing a password, makes the machine feel newer, I don't use Apple Pay Keyboard Try typing on your old retina after the new keyboard, it feels ancient, so all good (Except for the hardly acceptable noise levels, see below) OK Screen Is good but not that amazing upgrade coming from a retina Trackpad Works good but I don't use it that much over the basics, and never found myself using all those swipes etc. Touchbar Is ok, it's not amazing, it works well for Emoji's, that's about it. Actually I customised it so I can lock the screen, doesn't save much time as I knew the short cut for this anyways Not so great Trackpad Click is annoying & noisy, set it so I don't have to actually 'click' it but would prefer right of trackpad instead of 2 finger tap Battery Life Isn't great, 4.5 hours in my tests using an external monitor and doing day to day stuff Speed Quite honestly doesn't feel much faster than my old 2012 retina Bad Keyboard It's noisy, others in the office have said the same, probably the worse thing about the laptop That ended up way longer than I thought, hope it's useful. Any questions let me know.
