I wish Steve was still there. And I can see why Apple didn't make a big thing of this rollout. Having owned a 2015 MacBook I have to agree that their design peaked then and that was the best MacBook they ever made. Lost in today's announcement is they discontinued that one.
I bought the 2016 model, which I paid $5,000 of my own money for and then $1,200 to repair the keyboard even though it was covered by AppleCare, because I had a lot of faith in Apple at the time. But I hardly use the touch bar, I've never gotten used to the butterfly keyboard so I attach a third-party keyboard, and I didn't like the memory restriction.
So now I get essentially the same keyboard, just quieter, a fix for the memory by buying a whole new laptop, the same touch bar, and somewhat faster processor. I feel sad about saying this, but I'm gonna pass.
