    Powerful- everything responsive except t he keyboard. Or maybe it's too responsive. I'm takingm y laptop in to Mobile Macsters because the Geek Squad was too busy to dive into my keyboard issue (day after christmas). Admittedly, I didnot purchase geek squad protection and yet to purchase apple care. I have had it for 40 days and did not really type much on it at all until finals week when I realized I do my erasing than typing b/c of spaces inserted and letters registering where I don't want themt o register. Itm ayjust be myf ingers area ccutomed to typing on the work computer. Definitely would not recommend but I may be backt or emove the review.

    Worst MacBook Apple has made

    Since purchasing this computer in July, I've had to send to Apple for service on three different occasions. For some reason, Apple thought it would be cool to make the touch bar the new update for its 2018 Mac Brook Pro, with no option to purchase a new one without the touchbar. The touchbar is throwing off the keyboard. Its connection makes my keyboard type multiple characters, mostly O's and periods. My old Macbook never had this many issues. Apple should just stick to what works and stop with the "cool add-ons" that keep the main parts of the computer from performing correctly.

    There’s not much to be excited for. I only bought a new computer because my last one pooped out on me. It wasn’t a Mac, but I’m very familiar with their products as I have used them many times before. I decided on this one because I THOUGHT it’d be a good investment since I’m going back to school, but I thought wrong. The new screens are extremely fragile and I wish I’d known before I bought it. If you buy a new MacBook, you’d be paying for old technology unless you get the model with the Touch Bar. (Which isn’t mind blowing, but handy at times)

    Love Macbooks, but not the touchbar

    I did not think twice about getting the new (2018) Macbook with the touchbar until I got home and the touchbar went from being unresponsive to flashing and switching between settings uncontrollably on its own. I promptly returned the Macbook and was glad to know I could purchases another one without the touchbar. I don't have an issue with the 2018 Macbook Pro in general -- just wanted to let others know about potential touchbar issues. *I would recommend a Macbook, but I would not recommend one with a touchbar

    It is amazing how very sloooow this laptop performs!! It takes forever for web sites to pop up. Click on a photo and it is ridiculous how long it takes to process graphics!! Its very disappointing for a Apple product. This laptop will be returned quickly!! Don't waste your money on this model!!!

    Bought for my daughter. Had issue with machine taking updates. They replaced the machine and now it has happened again. Now we have to go thru Apple care which thankfully we bought. Stay away
