There has been plenty of talk about Apple's new Macbooks. While much of that has focused on the new touch bar and applauded it, some has been negative.
The naysayers complain about the price and the Thunderbolt ports, of course.That's to be expected, but some also have used this opportunity to rehash the combined approach taken by Microsoft. They are saying that Apple still doesn't get it, that the screen should be touch, and the touch bar is a half baked concession to that reality.
I don't know. It's possible that Apple may be right with this touch bar and extra large force-touch trackpad. The touch bar has been most noted by reviewers, but that trackpad could be an important tool also. Read Apple's description:
With proper software, it seems to me that trackpad can do everything you'd do by touching the screen and more (haptic feedback). Combine that with the menu exposure of the touch bar and you might be able to do *more* than you can with an iPad. Is there any conceptual reason why that wouldn't be true? I can't think of any.
Got something to add? Send me email.
