Touch Bar for me not much difference but the issue is most high spec memang comes with Touch Bar right?

Same to me lol. I almost rarely use the TouchBar unless when I am watching movies and stuffs. The autocomplete function isn't really helpful with Visual Studio as well so take the one without Touch Bar

hi everyone, I just got myself a new MacBook Pro Touch Bar, I want to ask how should we charge the MacBook to protect the battery life? Should we keep plugged in to the charger and use it all the time to keep the cycle count low? will it actually damage the battery more if we keep plugged in to the charger

Hey bro, did you manage to get the ports fixed under Apple warranty? My ports definitely got loose after 1 year + and fortunately I bought Apple Care. Thinking to get it fixed..

Quick question:

You guys with the flexgate/keyboard/staingate issues, how many hours have you clocked on your laptop? Daily driver @ 8 hours/day? Weekend warrior?

None of my friends have encountered any of the issues, one of em is more like a...monthly warrior. I myself use it mostly at night and during the weekends.

Would like to gauge if it's due to heavy usage or an inherent design flaw.

Hi all, want to ask several question on behalf of my fren. I never own any macbook b4, hence cannot give details comment. appreciate your advise here

1. Macbook US set warranty can claim in Malaysia Apple store. is it true? no hassle if anything happen? seems the price diff kind huge.

2. Macbook pro 15 can play dota 2 max settings? this only game he played.

3. worth to buy extended warranty?
