Not buying until they remove the headphone jack. What do they think this is, August 2016?
Eon@eonpilot · Swift dev @
@sisedi At least they removed the glowing apple logo on the back
Stanley Idesis@sisedi · Developer, Consultant, and Teen Idol
@eonpilot yeah but when you interact with the new touch bar, it gently tattoos the apple logo onto each fingertip
Eon@eonpilot · Swift dev @
@sisedi Seriously though you know this touch bar is going to be 👌 for XCode/snippets/clipboards etc etc. Productivity here we come!
Stanley Idesis@sisedi · Developer, Consultant, and Teen Idol
@eonpilot yeah I'm pretty stoked but won't be getting one anytime soon
Dwayne Charrington@dwayne_charrington
@sisedi I guess they're still working up the courage to remove the headphone jack on the MacBook.

@jackdweck emojibar FTW

@jackdweck I wanted to resist. I tried to resist. But yes, please just take my money. And more of my money for ever accessory I currently own but in USB-C form...

@bentossell @jackdweck The emoj-iBar 😎 (sorry couldn't help myself)
cj little@ibcj · technologist
@jackdweck 15" loaded = $4,299. They make you pay for the 2TB, that's for sure. I'm going to wait for a 32GB refresh for now, so in a bizarre reversal "Keep my money". :-D

@ibcj @jackdweck I agree 16GB max is a little disappointing…
Jean-Philippe Boily@jipiboily · Founder @ Metrics Watch & Simple Segment
@mittsh @ibcj @jackdweck yeah, I was expecting to be able to get a 32GB too...but well, they took my money for an almost maxed one (besides SSD, 1TB is enough for me).
Alex King@akingcreative · Creative Expert
@ibcj I totally agree. I'd be all over this if it had a 32gb ram option.

@jackdweck I don't look at the keyboard when i'm typing though, not for me.

Dont care what anyone thinks... I think the TouchBar looks Cool AF I hate my keyboard now. 'Microsoft has a touchscreen though....' - yeah but its Microsoft... EDIT: seems my 'yeah but its MS' has touched a nerve with some of you.... its my personal opinion ✌️
Matt Burns@mburns87 · Co-Founder @ TapWealth
@bentossell why did i just buy a macbook pro last mth... fml
Ben Mildren@mildrenben · rrrepo
@bentossell yeah but it's Microsoft seems like the such an awful statement to base purchases on. MS is killing it right now and Apple is stagnating IMO.
Nelson@759nelson · student
@mildrenben killing it with outdated I/O: no USB-C on a $3k computer, outdated graphics cards, etc. The concept is nice, but I don't need it, I can't draw anyway.
Jack Smith@_jacksmith · Serial Entrepreneur & Startup Adviser
@mburns87 if you bought it less than 30 days ago, you should be able to return it. Apple has a very liberal return policy, so you can return even used items
Andreas Mitschke@andmitsch · I own a computer
@bentossell Looks to me like amongst the most dysfunctional things ever seen. It's a gimmick I would expect from a gaming keyboard. I'm faster with my shortcuts and mouse than I would ever be with that battery absorbing gimmick bar.
David Chang@chang2301 · Founder, Ziltag
@bentossell very bold innovation! Love to see how users will adapt to it and create new user experience.
Dwayne Charrington@dwayne_charrington
@bentossell >yeah but its Microsoft... Pretty ignorant statement to make. Apple put an OLED screen on a MacBook with 3 year old hardware specifications and they're revolutionaries? I remember buying a Chinese no-name branded keyboard on eBay years ago that had a screen on it. This isn't a new thing. Apple are good at industrial design, but their software has taken many steps back and the internal hardware which is non-upgradable (thanks soldering). A nugget of gold on the outside and outdated laptop on the inside. At least Microsoft moved to i7's which are awesome for video editing and multi-tasking. Remind me again the maximum amount of memory a MBP can be configured with again in comparison to the Surface Book?

@bentossell If you like touchscreen interfaces integrated into a laptop, coulda bought this 4 years ago.
Some Guy@ghobs91 · Head Of Winging It, Denarri
@bentossell "Yeah but it's Microsoft" is the kind of blind fanboy-ism that's given Apple little motivation to innovate.
Aleksei@alekseizee · All things design
@759nelson exactly, everybody just bought on that pretty video, what a cheap mentality. Functionality wise, I don't want my screen to be a full touch screen, it's already has too many fingertips. I'd better buy an iPad Pro and use it as a drawing tablet. And Windows... f no.
Aleksei@alekseizee · All things design
@dwayne_charrington @bentossell how long did your chinese kb last though?
Jake Fisher@venturejakef · PitchDeck Consultant, Venture Formations
@bentossell I agree, when do you think we will see a Magic Keyboard for sale with a TouchBar?
Vlad Rafeev@dandaka · product manager,
@mburns87 Next time you'd better reference to MacRumor's Buyers Guide
twalkerp@twalkerp · founder
@wuss this is pretty awesome but don't see it for sale. Failed? I do wish apple made a separate keyboard. I don't think MBP is crazy cool I'm sure the engineering and power consumption was tricky. I'm not buying one though. But if I had more discretionary money and no kids I would.
Luke Robert@luke_robert
@759nelson @mildrenben outdated graphics cards? are you taking the piss?
Andreas Mitschke@andmitsch · I own a computer
@wuss @bentossell aaaand the razer blade comes equipped with way more power in a similar form-factor. Though, it does not come with an Apple industrial design and an inferior OS. You do not fit in occupying a table at starbucks. :D

@twalkerp Sounds weird, but it's actually so old it's been phased out of their product lineup.
Ryan Hoover@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
I don't think most people really care about a "faster processor" but emojis support... 😍💰
Naseem Raad@naseem_raad
@rrhoover did you see the interview with Craig, they why they spent 1/3 of WWDC talking about iMessage instead of other things. He said, when we do better performance bugs and whatnot no one cares, but the second we add 2 emojis the whole world goes crazy! 😂

@rrhoover It's all about the DJ now... scratch support? check ✅
