    A lot of folks took issue with the notch on phones, so I'm curious as to everyone's thoughts on it making it's way to the MacBook Pro?

    Doesn't seem too objectional to me. There is a lot going on behind the notch. Be interesting to see other opinions.

    I don’t know. It really depends how it works in practice. If it stays out of the way, I’m okay with it.

    I already know that this device is not for me, at the 2500$ starting price.

    Yeah, the price is certainly up there this time around.

    Completely un-necessary IMHO!

    My Dell XPS 9310 has thinner bezels all the way around and houses a webcam and Windows Hello IR camera which is MS equivalent of FaceID. Disappointing there is a notch!

    I am not too happy about it. It looks as if it could get in the way of menu bars, unless they wrap around the notch.

    Also there is no FaceID!

    That said, I plan on ordering a 16" maxed out everything with 2TB storage.
    Same price as the 16" 2019 i9 machine so there's that.
    I am one that will miss the touchbar personally.
    Given how good my M1 13" is, I look forward to the increased performance, battery life, and much quieter fan curves!
    If you work with ProRes video, M1 isn't an option it's a requirement!

    I put black tape over my laptop camera anyway. So I wouldn't care if I ended up owning one.

    I wonder why it's so big.
    Without face ID, one or two punchholes or a notch half the size would have sufficed.
    Is there more than just a camera and a green LED active indicator?

    I don’t think it’s that big, at least not from the pics I saw. Maybe they needed it that size for the new FaceTime camera.

    I agree. If they made it any smaller it would look pretty funny.

    but there is no Face Time afaik.
    If there was Face Time, I would understand the size, as there is more to cover than just a camera and a LED.

    this is the first time ever that I hear someone saying that a notch was made bigger because it looks better that way.

    I have to apologize.
    It seems that me getting older means going gaga.
    I meant Face ID not Face Time.
    Of course, the new FACE TIME could be the reason for more space need.

    I never a said that .

    It’s as large as it need to be to double the resolution of the camera to 1080p including a larger image sensor and a new 4 element lens with a wider f/2.0 aperture in an extremely thin enclosure that’s a couple of mm’s thick. . (Not to mention the ambient light sensor, True Tone sensor and an led.)

    It’s the one on the far end

    I think the tiny one on the 1st picture looks great.
    Too bad reality looks different.
