I'm actually a big fan of the new MBP. It's my favorite laptop on the market today, and I would prefer it over anything else. It's small and light while being powerful, has a beautiful display, amazing speakers, and phenomenal build quality. However, I'm upset with Apple over their choices, but not the ones you're probably thinking of. Most complain about the dongles/lack of connectivity, the trackpad, or the touchbar, but I'm really upset over the pricing. It's not that I can't afford a MBP, but it's the fact that I feel like I'm getting ripped off. For example: XPS 15 Kaby Lake 2.8GHz i7 quad-core 512GB SSD 4GB Graphics $1750 MBP 15" Skylake 2.6GHz i7 quad-core 512GB SSD 4GB Graphics $2800 $1050 more for the MBP for comparable specs (once Apple updates to Kaby Lake). I realize Apple has always come at a premium, and for good reason. The MBP has better speakers, is lighter, smaller, more solidly built imo, has much quieter fans, better support, and better quality control. But is all that worth $1050? I could buy a MacBook Air with the extra money I saved from the XPS. It's really frustrating, because I really love the MBP. I don't like Windows. I love Apple ecosystems and I think the MBP is superior hardware wise, besides specs, to all other laptops. I'm willing to pay a premium for that, but a $1050 premium is excessive. I really, really hope Apple lowers the price on the Kaby Lake models, and makes the Touch Bar optional. I realize it needs developer support to flourish, and forcing people to get the touch bar pretty much forces developers to update their apps for it. However, I personally have no use for it, it actually is more cumbersome at times for me (I tried the MBP out for a week, but couldn't justify the price), and I'd much rather save the $300 and have longer battery life. I realize some people love it, but please give people the option not to buy it, so we can save money, battery life, and functionality for our uses. Apple: PLEASE lower the prices and make the touchbar optional.
