Hard pass. A heinous keyboard, stingy storage, the amount of RAM is not future-proof, everything is soldered and glued, and the price – even with discounts – is an egregious insult to even the most seasoned masochists.

These Macbook Pros are thoroughly detestable and shall forever live in infamy.

Timmy, mind your hateful pipeline.

Don't buy – big chance to get troubles with this "butterfly-"keyboard – earlier or (even worse) later and mind the gap (if you need to join the keyboard program for repair).

This keyboard is faulty in all of its 3 "levels":
1. gathering dirt till failure (the membrane is no real skelter, works like a funnel)
2. electronically instable (because the need of too narrow mechanical tolerances)

And: No ESC-key, no F-keys – a nonsense for professional work at all!

This nearly five years of Apple's inactivity was like a march through a vast desert for everybody who intends to buy a reasonable laptop by Apple!
Still you a forced to pay for this senseless advertising gag called "Touch Bar" – Touch ID would be far enough ;)

What's about the court cases?! Nothing heard in between... the biggest Apple scandal IMO over the last decade :apple: :mad:

Agreed. You’d have to be out of your mind to buy this.

That's right folks! Go ahead and "save" money on the POS version of the MBP that has the crap butterfly keyboard!!! It'll fail on you within 6 months or at least not be fully functional!

All while Apple is getting ready to release the 13 inch model with the ever-reliable scissor key model.

You'd be foolish to buy this model now with the known bad keyboard, low configuration, and a new model coming out in a couple of months.
