    Perfect size and real function keys. No price bloat from the useless Touch Bar.

    Great laptop. It does not have the touch bar but I don't need it. Bought this on sale so it was a great value.

    I gave my Late 2008 Aluminum MacBook to my son and replaced it with a 2017 Space Gray MacBook Pro (no Touchbar - not of much use to me and too much additional expense) and I couldn't be happier! It's nice having a working, updated trackpad and although I've read negative comments about the keyboard, I couldn't like it more. As usual, a perfect product from Apple!

    This MacBook Pro with the "butterfly keyboard" has so far held up with no issues as others have experienced. I can see where if you had to type a novel utilizing this low profile keyboard it may prove cumbersome as there is very little feedback received from key strokes. However, it makes it crazy light and slim so by just using it traveling and around the house it has been great. No touch bar for me, just another thing that can potentially fail and I have zero use for it.

    Although this is the 2017 model, it has more than enough of what I need. I found it unnecessary to pay $500 more for a touchbar and slight increase in performance. I use this MacBook for music at home music production and photography editing. I know this MacBook will probably last me a good 4-5 years. Maybe then I'll be ready for a touchbar lol

    This was returned, because I just couldn't stand the thought of not getting the same model with Touchbar. Transitioning from an IPad to a MacBook is about as easy of a transition as your going to get. For the average user, this is an incredibly nice computer; probably more than needed. But I am in it for the long haul, so ultimately I had to get what I wanted. This machine is powerful enough to do so much; I just need to learn its capabilities & mine!

    Went with the Touch Bar. The Touch Bar was not a selling point, but the quad core processor and extra USB ports was. I have both Mac and PC products, but prefer Mac. The computer is small light and has a fantastic battery life. Only draw back was the screen was a small, when writing papers and working with spreadsheets.

    I'll admit it. I'm a Mac person. But this laptop surprised me in the weight and continued ease of use. My only regret is that I didn't get the touch bar. Next time.

    I love my MacBook! It has one of the most amazing screens I've ever seen on any laptop. The unit is quick and snappy for on all of the applications I use (Photoshop, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, chrome, Lightroom) I can even play Sims 4 without any problems besides heat. A lot of people have expressed their dissatisfaction with the keyboard but for me, it is actually quite nice. I enjoy the travel after getting used to it and the sound of the keys don't bother me. I opted out of the touch bar model since I didn't really see any point in spending the $300 extra for that feature even though the quad-core performance increase in the processor would have been nice this unit is great for what I will be using it for which is mostly school and some web surfing.

    The Mac

    Very new to the Mac and I find it very smooth and sleak. Very different to windows indeed but I noticed it still has its niggles. Which I find very strange. It has restarted on its own a number of times but doesn't take much time to restart. Not so bad compared to windows laptops. Overall once I get the silly niggle sorted, I think its a nice laptop sleak, quiet and fast running. Personally I don't recommend getting the touch bar as its a gimic.

    New for June 2017

    I decided to get the Macbook Pro just after the update in June 2017. The major driving factor was the fact that it was now offered without the Touch Bar / Touch ID for a reduced price. While I do hope my next Mac includes these technologies, it is great that now you have the option to shave some of the cost off of an already expensive machine. Keep in mind that all of the new Macbooks / Macbook Pros have USB-C only and this particular model only has 2 USB-C ports. Compare this to the more pricey version with Touch Bar which has 4 USB-C ports. Overall, it is a great machine and the small form factor still blows me away when I compare it to my old Macbook Pro. The one downside is that a USB-C to USB adapter is not included and needs to be purchased separately... it seems like it should come with a computer at this price point.

    It my not have the touchbar but does a great job at handling daily college tasks, these last 3 months. Saving to get a camera and see the editing side of this macbook pro. Coming from mostly Window operated systems, it was hard to get around the learning curve of it since it was my first apple computer. The only down side is sending papers out to Micosoft word format. You have to create a second file of your original paper to be compatible with people that use Microsoft word. The Tech told me it was comptabile but forget to mention creating a second file. I found this out when a professor told me she couldn't read it. Did a quick online search and found how to do make Pages compatible to Word using the Pages perefences. Great buy don't regret it since it 300 less then the one with the touchbar. Which I felt I didn't need any ways.
