From someone who programs for a living, I have to say I’m pretty psyched on the new pro. Sure it’s not an amazing incredible mind-blowing invention, and if you have a laptop newer than 2013 you might not want to pick it up, but the fact that they’ve kept the same performance across the board yet making it smaller and lighter than ever, while also nearly doubling the read speed of the SSD, improving the graphics by nearly 30%, doubling the trackpad size, and tacked on a display that is significantly ahead of both the competition as well as the previous generation, I’d say it sounds like people have nothing to complain about. Not to mention whenever Apple actually does add anything new to their laptops, people just say it’s a gimmick (e.g. touch bar). Personally, I think the touch bar has a ton of potential, and brings some much needed dynamic interaction to the keyboard, something that hasn’t changed in virtually a decade. Bar some little fingerprint scanners here and there or the weird eraser thing to use instead of a trackpad, there have been no changes. Seems like a huge step up to me.
