Which one is right for me? None of the current models.
Give me input options, more battery and a larger screen. Even better would be to make user upgradable SSDs, RAM, etc. Apple could reinvent the computers to be completely interchangeable / upgradable. Similar to the idea for the RED video camera. Now that would be cool.
Apple – if you're listening – please just fix the keyboard issue of leaving permanent marks on the display. That's all I ask out of an expensive pro machine. And please don't come with the weak excuse of people carrying their laptop in a bag. That's kind of the point. You had the problem already solved back in the MBP 17" days (I miss them), so you can do it. I don't care about a new touch bar or touch log-in, I just want a keyboard that doesn't touch the screen.
Underwhelming and overpriced. I need 32GB RAM as I use a lot (I'm always maxing out my 2012 MBPR at 16GB RAM). And I use the card reader a lot as well since I'm a photographer. 4 TB3 ports and no card reader? Really? At least include several adapters in the box so we can use all of our existing devices without shelling out even more money. You can include it in the higher prices you're charging. Or at least give us some kind of option (another Pro model with other ports or a build-to-order option). Disappointing.
So for all of us who have invested in expensive headphones, etc that use the standard jack, that means we'll have to buy yet another expensive adapter, if it even will be created. Great. Apple, how about make replaceable jack modules that the user can actually choose for themselves what they want? At least for a few years during a "transition phase" rather than abruptly. It could be designed cleanly and might even get more customers. Just a thought. Anyway, I smell a new computer manufacturer over the horizon that lets the user completely customize their computer/phones/whatever via switchable modules. Not everyone wants the same thing.
