I’ve had my MacBook Pro for a couple months now and I have to say the keyboard is pretty awesome. I know the travel is really short and people have issues with the arrow keys but this keyboard lets me type really fast. I have a Dell POS from work that I’ve used for maybe over a week and I’m ready to toss it into the ‘glades because the user experience is so poor. The touch bar I haven’t used as much as I thought as I would but I still like using it to activate Siri, change browser tabs, and control the volume.
Just for the keyboard alone I would love to use this computer for work. The touchpad might be a close second reason but definitely the keyboard would be a winner for me. The lack of escape key (dedicated) hasn’t really bothered me that much. I don’t use it often enough. I can see the touchbar aspect becoming more valuable over time but it really is a gimic for now.
I wanted to write this post on my MacBook but WordPress is being difficult about loading photos from Google. I’ve had to do this from my iPhone instead. The previous 3 posts were done from the MacBooktgough. If I could bring it on the road with me I would but I already have too much tech gear in my bag. Maybe on the next vacation I’ll bring it to write some big posts while on vacation.
