New MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models arrive at select Apple storesScottish_Claymore said:Back to building a hackintosh for me. Im wanting a powerful desktop not a laptop that has been lobotomised because of battery life.
New MacBook Pro with Touch Bar models arrive at select Apple storesGot my new system yesterday, have been using for a day and can report:
All working perfect
New bar is kinda cool, not sure I would use it all that much though. (Maybe while traveling when I don't have other input devices)
GPU is rocking fast, can play Starcraft at much higher settings
Keyboard is precise
Screen is super sharp and bright
Could hook up my desk with 1 dongle (was surprised after all the press on this).
Keyboard is loud
CPU is showing to be slower than my older computer on Geekbench, not sure if I trust this number through. And, I know it is less about that than usability
Price. This is where I am struggling the most. Again, great machine, but not 3K better than the old unit. So, will give it the next week and see if it grows on me.

I see it all the time, the person across the aisle on taxi still texting, putting his phone down every time the attendant walks by. We are not a culture of rule followers.
