How much more stupid Apple can be after getting rid of the earjack? And here the answer. Add a useless touch bar on a laptop. Even the touch screen on my fridge works millions time better than this!
I find it more like a gimmick feature and very distracting... how devs can take seriously that fancy function?
In return they just remove many useful ports like HDMI, SD Card and normal USB...
Don't know why are people getting hyped about touchbar when windows laptops having touchscreen can do much better functions.

Apple is running out of ideas... soon its gonna get broke! And no one will even buy their products any more... not even isheeps
The News macbooks' are more a downgrade. They Are not taking pro-users seriously at all..
Having a touch esc button is not very good...but otherwise the touchscreen can be implemented to add to tools like games, weapon switching..however the mousepad without dedicated keys or even the butterfly switch are not the best for gaming, and ios is not the people's favorite for pc gaming..a dedicated mechanical keyboard such as corsair k95 with its macros can definitely takedown the functions of the touchscreen...
There was a comment on e ink keys..that is a good idea
M.G, 29 Oct 2016after 3.5 mm jack its time to remove keyboard!!!! the best thing is ... everything apple did , it hurt more apple hater than apple user it self ... some apple user also dont like what apple did but apple hater really not feel comfortable what apple did ..
they will take couple of device just to bash one single apple device ....

That or, if they really wanted the bar, still keep the functions keys with the added bar on top.
Just like force touch this isn't going to be useful except for some popular apps and os functions right now. Maybe in the future both the feature and the sp
No glowing logo?
Meh. People need it so they can stand out among the crowd.
Apple really wants developers to take the Touch Bar seriously Post comment
This feature is just a gimmicky, why they just put a touch screen in the screen of the macbook. and the price doesnt justify it.
And these new macbook have anemic CPU.
