I've been a pretty staunch defender of the new Mackbooks. I own two of the base configuration 13" tMBP models. While I think this a solid upgrade, here are some things I don't like! 1) CASE Yeah, yeah, I know it's a work of art and so well made and blah, blah. But the top edges are SHARP. My larger 15" has more surface area for the palms and the Air case design is more comfortable. Primarily I don't like the edges of the case when opened. Couldn't they round them off? 2) TOUCH-BAR It needs to be a bit bigger, brighter and have adjustable brightness. 3) HEADPHONE JACK Why is this not mounted closer to the front of the case? Why mount it back there? 4) SIRI Can't set an alarm? Huh? 5) CHARGING While I much prefer USB-C, a little indicator light on the cable or side of case showing me Charging/Charged would have been nice. 6) BAD BUSINESS DECISIONS Even though these things don't matter to most, Apple could have had a happier crowd by doing the following. a) Leave an SD slot, preferably one that is spring loaded that goes 95% into the case. b) 16 GB memory for all Touch models would have been a good marketing move. c) Put a 50 cent USB adapter in the box. My tip is this: Don't get a tMBP unless you're current machine needs to be replaced. You'll always get more machine by waiting. I got the 13" tMBP for my job and also for fun. But I'll wait another cycle before swapping out the 2015 15" rMBP for the 15" tMBP. Cheers, R.
