    Great job, much better than most I'm seeing. I think you are the first reviewer I've seen that mentions you can get one adapter to replace all of the ports. Everyone seems to drop a huge pile of dongles like you need to haul around a bunch of the things when one good travel dongle like what you are showing should keep people covered for just about anything. Lots of good info there. Look forward to hearing your thoughts after using it a while. Thanks for posting, it's awesome for those of us waiting for our shipments to see these.

    Awesome review dude [thumbs up]. How do you like the touch bar? Can you tap once to use ESC of increase/decrease volume and brightness? Or is it two taps?

    Comment about migration being faster doesn't make sense - you're going to be bottlenecked by the output of your older machine.

    For brightness or volume, you just tap and hold then slide left or right on the button to decrease or increase.

    I don't see how people are overlooking that. As someone who docks at work, it is way more convenient. Instead of loading my Mac up with an HDMI Cable, Power Cable, and another USB device, I simply plug one single adapter into the USB-C port. The adapter stays and work, and it is so much easier than before.

    Thanks! Yes, at first I didnt like it because it was my first time using the new butterfly mechanism. But, it was a nice surprise and feels pretty good. Takes a little bit to get used to. Overall, I'm happy with it :)

    One thing to note: Key presses are definitely more "clicky". Which is what everyone wanted out of the first iteration of the butterfly keyboard. BUT, this makes the typing much louder. CLICKITY CLICK!!!! :)
