The New Macbook Pros are gorgeous, overpriced, and functionally limited machines that Apple should be ashamed of.

Not bad. That makes it only about $500 overpriced compared to the previous generation's value.

"Ships in 21 - 27 business days"
"Delivers in 24 - 32 business days"

So Basically I have to wait almost 2.5 - 3 months to get ? No thank you
These are likely concurrent estimates. It's not going to take another 24 to 32 business days to deliver after it ships.

As a 15 year-strong Apple customer, neither the iPhone 7 (with its lack of jack support and not much to offer over the 6S) or the pro laptop range (with zero upgradeability and a plethora adapters that would be required) are an option for me.

I fear it'll be a long time 'till I next splash out on new Apple hardware. However, my Mid-2010 MBP with upgraded memory and SSD is still flying, albeit Sierra being the last officially supported OS. I'd kill for the retina screen though, so I'll probably end up going for an older model which can be upgraded and already has all the ports I require.

It won't be long before Apple start to offer external keyboards with the touch-bar support. I may be in the minority here, but I do actually believe this is more than just a gimmick. From what I've seen, it's been extremely well implemented. I wouldn't be surprised in future MBP's ship with touchpads that operate in a similar way. Perhaps I'll hold out for these. I've no interest in a touch-screen laptop!

Sad times.
