“The new MacBook Pro is here — literally available for preorder today — and I’ve just tried it,” Dieter Bohn writes for The Verge. “The best thing I can say about is simple: everything about it looks and feels so good I almost didn’t believe it.”

“We’ll start with the marquee feature, the Touch Bar. What you might not have gathered from the keynote is that it has a matte finish, which makes the buttons on it somehow feel a little more physical,” Bohn writes. “It’s bright, but not so bright that it distracts — it seems to be about on par with the brightness of the backlit keyboard.”

“There’s no haptic feedback on them, unfortunately, but obviously they all worked perfectly. That included quickly applying filters in Photos and sorting emails in Mail,” Bohn writes. “What’s neat about dragging buttons down from the screen to the Touch Bar is that you can keep moving them with the mouse on the second screen.”
