A Minimalist's Review of the MacBook Pro with Touchbar
Minimalism at all costs is not the way to go. Minimalism for the sake of minimalism doesn't always benefit you. I think we've learned that with Apple's mistakes of removing ports and headphone jacks.
As far as budgetary sense goes--I find it absurd that the MacBook pro is more expensive than iMacs.
The iMac Pro will still be lacking compared to iPads because it won't have touch screen. Something they need to work on getting ASAP.
