    Reading this thread has me torn. The Touch Bar sounds useful, but only the no-Touch-Bar version has a semi-replaceable SSD. Repairability has significant value to me, but Touch ID sure would be nice too!

    I don't own it but it seems gimmicky to me
    My first reaction was 'AWESOME' but once that died down and i started playing with it a little more in stores. It doesn't seem to add much benefit to my life. Maybe to others it will I'm happy using a physical button to turn my brightness down and various other things. I do like seeing a while video timeline in the touch bar and i can move between sections quickly. But that alone isn't worth the premium

    Maybe Touch Bar 2.0 will add new things and make it much more worth while.

    I'm used to using touchscreen. But I'm fed up cleaning it 5 or 6 times a day.
    However this touchbar is half way crossover for me.
    I only need to clean my screen every other day if that.

    I couldn't agree more. They should make a non touch bar version, but with touch id only!

    Same. I work fixing computers and my OCD goes through the roof when I see these touch screen Windows units full of fingerprints, grease stains and marks. It's so unsanitary if you ask me. Granted, I know the phone I'm typing this on is no better, neither is my Mac keyboard, but just something about a 17" panel with stains and prints on it just bugs me...

    I like it. Once your using your MacBook Pro for a few weeks your brain starts to work with it better. Just my opinion

    It's actually amazing how much I use the touch bar! Once you start getting used to it, I would be lost without it! Especially in Final Cut Pro! It's one of those things at first you're not sure about, but once you start to utilize it very amazing function on my MacBook Pro.

    Maybe it's cool but without it I don't feel like I'm missing it. If my next one has it, then I may wonder how I went so long without!

    I've been using the TouchBar for several months now, and it's certainly a marketing gimmick, however the fingerprint sensor on the far-right of the TouchBar works great and actually saves me time and effort from typing my system password.

    This would be the killer feature for me if I didn't have an Apple Watch
