    Can't wait to have custom function bars for different apps. Sketch toolbar anyone?

    Function key touch bar

      Am I the only one that thinks this—at least in it's suspected form—is a terrible idea? Are Mac app builders actually going to adopt this or is this just more overhead?

      Either way, we'll find out soon.

        I'm with you - for me I'd find this really distracting, and I'd imagine Apple will want to funnel all this kind of control in apps through Siri (obviously Siri needs work) and not add more to the hardware itself

        Simple. It'll have taptic feedback - so you can't hate it.

        I develop Mac apps and I'll be all over this. I just hope Apples API for it is not too limited!

        Hell yeah devs will adopt this... quickly.

      I hope not. This looks like a cheap Windows machine.

      If done correctly this could be a game changer for Apps on the Mac. API will probably be very limited at first but it reminds me of when the first iPhone dropped and they showed images of phones before and after. Lots of fixed buttons replaced by a new, dynamic interface.

        Yep! If they do something like this it will probably be a unique take, so I don't think anyone should be judging by previous works of fiction in the matter.

        Can't wait to find out.

      Love this idea, looks genuinely useful.

      This does me no good. I use an external monitor and keyboard.

    Can't wait to snap up a new MBP!

    I hope we see the e-ink keyboard!

    My 3+ year old Macbook Air is still just as capable as when I bought it. I was however not smart enough to realize that a 128GB SSD isn't enough so now I'm constantly stuck with less then 10GB of free space and completely running out when performing heavier tasks in Photoshop. So these new laptops are really overdue for me.

    This is make of break for me and Apple. Been using Macs for 15+ years but their pro offering is woefully underpowered. Feels like the only """"""""""Pro"""""""""" users they consider are Apple Bloggers.

    If they don't release a Nvidia powered Mac Pro for CUDA work I'll be forced to move to Windows + PC.

      100% agreed. I will be buying a laptop from another company and building a hackintosh if they don't do something great with the hardware.

      I love apple, but the 27th decides if I continue buying apple products.

        Love what Apple used to be and still love OS X. Can't stand the idea of having to use windows but if Apple machines literally can't perform the calculations I need then my hand is being forced.

    Do we really, really need new computers?
