Everybody is unboxing and reviewing the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. You’ve probably seen some videos. You’ve probably seen disk speed tests, Geekbench test, and… of course the comparison with last year’s MacBook Pro.
Sometimes the new MacBook Pro is faster and sometimes slower than last year’s model. Even so, the new MacBook Pro will perform various tasks faster than last gen MacBook Pro.
Should you buy the new MacBook Pro? If you need to ask yourself this question, than you probably don’t. Just enjoy your 2015 MBP. The new one is not a game changer. Not yet.
However, if you’re going to buy one, go ahead and watch all the MBP videos on YouTube, and also watch Casey’s “comprehensive” first look at the 15inch MBP with TouchBar. Just because it’s different, I think it addresses everybody even if it’s a MacBook “Pro” and I happen to agree with everything he says. Not because it’s Casey, but because I had the exact same thoughts when Apple unveiled the damn thing.

Based on leaked parts and credible reports, there’s a new MacBook Pro expected to launch later this year. The biggest new feature that has been rumored is that the new MacBook Pro will come with a touchscreen display integrated into the keyboard, replacing the function keys. The idea behind the keyboard display is that it could be a great place for the traditional Mac menu bar, and software can use it to display certain shortcuts and free up valuable screen real estate.
However, before you get all excited, if this rumor materializes it won’t be as cool as you might think. Most apps won’t be using it and it will take time to get support for it ( maybe you’ll have to wait for the next gen MacBooks with keyboard display ). A second screen, even such a small screen, will use that valuable battery juice. Not to mention the extra production cost of the MacBook Pro which will add to the retail price. And what happens when it breaks? These days it seems that it’s not “if” it breaks it’s “when” it breaks….
