This redesigned MacBook Pro with Touch Bar from 2017 is one of the coolest gadgets I’ve ever used. Unfortunately, while it nails the look and performance department, it didn’t fare so well in the reliability area.
The keyboard has already become a major pain point for me. We don’t have Apple store here so getting the keyboard replaces is a hassle in itself.
I just hope Apple doesn’t make another screw-up like this one ever again. It is not very Apple-like. If the 2018 12-inch MacBook is any indication, which I’ve been using for a few months now, I’d say that they are back on track. That keyboard is a lot better on that than this one on the pricier MacBook Pro.
Nevertheless, it’s still a beautiful machine. I took that photo as soon as I opened it out of the box in late last year. The pictures of the MacBook Pro from that day continue to be some of the best photos I took of the Mac. There are a lot of more of those that I hope to publish someday on ais.blog.
