“I am really excited about the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar,” Zac Hall writes for 9to5Mac. “I placed my order for a 15-inch model with storage upgraded to 1TB SSD on day one which puts me in the initial 2-3 week shipping range between November 17 and November 25. I seriously cannot wait to unbox this Mac.”
“The time between the unveiling and deliveries, however, has been filled with mass criticism targeted at nearly every change Apple has made between the last MacBook Pro design and the new one. This is a change MacBook Pro and we’ve been through these before,” Hall writes. “We’ll be fine. But in the meantime, I believe people are complaining about the wrong things.”
“For example, MagSafe being replaced with USB-C. Sure, there are trade offs, but the charging situation on the new MacBook Pro is way better overall. MagSafe was a single port dedicated to nothing but charging. The MacBook Pro with Touch Bar has four USB-C ports, two on either side, all capable of being a charging port,” Hall writes. “Replacing USB-A (and all the other ports) with USB-C is also dramatic for people. But it’s clearly the future and so much better than what we’ve been used to before now. Embrace USB-C as fast as possible. Don’t bother with adapters except when you have to, replace your cables instead.”
