I've ordered one. Maxed out 15". I don't actually have a functioning personal computer right now, so I needed to do something about that. I've been waiting for this revamp for a couple years now. It's disappointing how Apple has left us hanging for so long. People are complaining about a lot of little things, but I can really only go off of the things that will affect me personally. So, my personal pros, cons, and whatevers:
It runs macOS. This is the single biggest factor for me. Yes, there are many other finely crafted machines out there, but they don't run macOS. I need it for my work, yes, but I also just love the OS, and I'm happily ingrained in the Apple ecosystem. I can't see myself switching to Windows any time soon, no matter how awesome PC specs may be. Not trying to start a discussion on this, it's just my preference.
The Touch Bar. It does look pretty cool, and really useful for a lot of apps. I'm thinking about making a simple brick breaker game for it just for fun.
Gigantic Trackpad. SO MUCH SPACE.
Touch ID. No more typing my password to unlock my computer. It's a little thing, but when you do it 20 times a day, it's a pretty big deal. Also, less filling out credit card forms on the internet.
Wide color gamut display. For my viewing pleasure.
2TB SSD. Yeah, it's expensive, but it's worth it to me.
It's thin and light. People complain about Apple's obsession with thin and light, and I often agree with that, but I'm excited about the portability of this laptop.
Skylake processors. I know, of course they're using the latest available processors. But it's a big reason for me not to buy the cheaper previous gen MBP instead. I don't want to miss out on any future macOS features that are only supported by this new generation of architecture. I've been there before. It's not a fun place to be.
I dunno, man:
The keyboard. This is my biggest worry. I've tried out the keyboard on the little MacBook and it's terrible. This one is supposed to be better. We'll see.
16GB RAM max. I really wish there were a 32GB option. I use around 13-14GB on a regular basis, so there will be times when I'll have to be conscientious of the apps I have running.
No MagSafe. I can recall a few times when MagSafe saved my computer from 3-4 foot drops, so having to use Thunderbolt makes me nervous. I know Griffin makes their own little dongle for it, but I don't want that sticking out of my computer at all times.
Not really pissed about this:
All the dongles. I've owned two laptops in my life, and the SD card slots in both of them wore down and became just about unusable. So I figure I'll end up using a dongle either way. And for display output, dongles are all I've ever known.
The price. Lot's of people are shocked by the price tag on this thing. I understand if people are angry over it, but they shouldn't be surprised. This is standard for a revamp of this line. The 2012 Retina MacBook Pros were the same price as these. So, any less would have been a bonus to me.
