After new rMBP's releasing, I have heard so many negative feedbacks, almost 95% of all the feedbacks. But I think once people hand on their new Macs, they will just love them. I personally love the new function bar and have many positive perspectives on thunderbolt 3 ports. I can image how I adjust the progress of my video without painfully using my trackpad. and I also see Apple has done some works on software to compensate the loss of physical functional keys. You can change your Caps key to esc key and so on, if I remember it right. ------------update about price---------------- A lot of people here focus on the price rather the actual design. There is another thread talking about that. But not here. It's a price hike. I hesitated a lot when I ordered it.
