  • Posted to Trackpad worth the upgrade?, in reply to Brln . , Sep 25, 2017
    • Rechargeable batteries would work I guess, but it's more of a hassle.
    • Pairing is a total mess if you have more than one mac in a room (and want to switch between them), usb makes it 10x better actually.
    • Use force touch all the time, remapped it to bring up shortcuts for window management, so that's how I throw windows around.
    • I'd say it's noticeable anywhere, but def didn't feel limited by the old one on this.

    Old one def does a stellar job still, I'd say it's the second best trackpad you can buy, it's just that the new one is the best :)

    I've had both, and heavily prefer the new one, even though it's ridiculously expensive

    I'd say there's a few major upsides:

    • rechargable
    • easy to pair (just plug it in)
    • works over USB too
    • no moving parts (the old one clicks through it's rubber feet, mine broke)
    • force touch
    • larger touch area

  • Posted to So, I'm buying a new MacBook. Question is, which one?, in reply to G Juchault , Jul 05, 2017

    +1 for this one, works like a charm.

    @luis, also worth mentioning: External GPU support via thunderbolt 3 is coming in High Sierra, so if you can live with being tied to a desk sometimes you might not have to sacrifice that much performance either. https://developer.apple.com/development-kit/external-graphics/

    Absolutely love my Dell U3415W. It's 34" and certainly not cheap, but there's no going back from comfortably using three apps next to each other.

    Colors are nice, even though I like them better on the iMac etc. I do more dev work than design though.

    +1 for the 12".

    Got the m7 a couple of weeks back, haven't noticed anything it can't do (of my dev work) that my old 2012 quad-i7 could yet, and the portability is a game changer.

    Hopefully USB-C/TB3 accessories will drop in price a bit now that all the apple notebooks use it, good times.

    I've been using it on my work MBP since beta 2, been as stable as El Cap for me :)
