Had a go at them yesterday. Can't say the touch-bar is smart or really dumb. The things it's capable of doing is limitless, especially once software to utilize it keeps up.

But the location of the touch-bar, and how un-intuitive it is to use makes it a really really hard sell. Plus the pricing. So I think I'll stick my old MBP until they figure out what to do with themselves again.

Ditto... it's not essential. Something like iPhone 3D Touch... hit or miss depending what you use it for and why.

Wonder how they managed to get 17.25 hours with the latest update. Updated yesterday but battery lasted barely 6 hours with normal surfing on Firefox and chat on Telegram. Actually most of the time was idle. mad.gif

ps. the screen brightness was set less than half the bar and bluetooth off. Nothing was connected to the mbp.
Hopefully is was not the firefox that drained the battery.

Sorry, what I meant using "latest update" was the beta 10.12.3 (Beta) update.

It will not magically double battery, if u have a look at their battery test the brightness is 100 nits, that's 1/5 from full brightness.

Consumer reports has done an about turn regarding battery life!
Of course with re-testing and what not.

Seems like with regards to Apple all seem to be cautious when it comes to negative review/ opinion.

Just received my macbook pro 13 inches, with touch bar. Pretty impressed with the notebook and its battery life. My last laptop was a macbook air 2012. I wrapped it matte finishing at Mobile Outfitting. Love the work that they do....
