EDITED WITH SOME UPDATES Ok so I am not sure if I will keep this thing. Here are just a few things I noticed so far, good and bad. 1. NO LONGER AN ISSUE. Studio one works after latest restart. ----- I loaded up studio one to stress test a music session (its why I bought this thing). And even with no plugins or anything loaded I get CPU spikes. This could be. Presonus issue. I don't know. Cant play music - 2. NO LONGER AN ISSUE. Restarted and now its fine. It struggles with 4k 60fps though. It craps out to around 30fps and jittery. Its not a 4k screen so maybe it will work better on a real 4k screen. ----- I loaded up a 1440 youtube video at 60fps and noticed that the computer can't actually stream it without minor hiccups. They are small but at this price they should not be there. 3. Im coming from a 2009 MacBook. Yes its old but I can't help but feel that this thing is noticeably flimsier. Its still very well built but...Cant help but miss the heftiness of that old one. This one will not survive much of a dent I think. 4. Donglegate is not great but fine. 5. touch bar is not that useful but I still think its a decent addition. 6. The buried volume bar is not an issue because if you press down on the volume button and slide it still changes the volume. So really its not buried at all. EDIT 7. I am also finding the monitor to bright. and then when I dim it....to dark. Maybe its the high contrast but it feels harder on the eyes. again, I am coming from a non retina old MacBook so I probably just have to get used to it. EDIT 2 8. Touch ID is awesome but not always integrated. I LOVE not having to put in passwords constantly.
