    I do not post much but wanted to add my experience to the collective.

    Been a Mac fan for about 5 years. My 2012 MBP 13 inch is bullet proof and I have an unhealthy relationship with it. I have been waiting for the update like many of you and was excited to be able to afford a brand new laptop when the announcement occurred.

    Disappointed when out of the box the touch-bar failed to work. I of course spoke to apple who confirmed I had a hardware issue and it would be have to be sent back. Shame really.

    Thought you guys should have the real world incident.

    Been a PC user my entire life. My 2008 Sony VAIO Z Series is bulletproof and I have a healthy relationship with it. I have been waiting for the update like many of you and was excited to be able to afford a brand new laptop when the announcement occurred.

    Elated when out-of-the-box the Touch Bar worked like a dream. Of course my friends were impressed with the new feature. A real conversation piece.
