I have a 13" touchbar.
It's a great laptop, the industrial design is on point. Touch bar has potential. USB-C is the future.
It feels only minutely faster than my 2012 mbp. 4 years later, super expensive laptop, and it kinda just runs the same.
The battery life is awful. Normally new laptops, the battery life feels incredible. No, this runs like an old laptop.
What is going on??? Who is to blame? Intel? Apple? Every year our phones get faster and faster and faster... yet a four year upgrade on a mbp is barely noticeable, yet now far more expensive. With all the complaints about dongles and gimmick touch bar and blah blah blah -- the most important thing, performance and battery is what actually sucks about these laptops. One thing is for certain, Moore's law is dead.
