The Good - much faster, nice screen, SDD is very fast, thin and light with good battery power, and excellent speakers for a laptop
The Chicken Guano:
* Apple no longer includes the little extension for the power adapter meaning you have to buy one for an extra $20 if you want to plug in to any outlet that will not fit a heavy 4" power block (total guano for the most expensive laptop on the planet)
* Touch bar is much worse than a useless gimmick, it makes it difficult to use the actual function keys when you need them - you get to play the "where is the brightness key now?" game (it's on the right, no its on the left, wait where is the volume, it is on the right, no middle, wait it is moving around, now it's gone, you have to click x to get it back because you adjusted the brightness if you want the volume - good luck doing any of that without staring at the keyboard and long for the days when you could thoughtlessly hit the mute button or adjust the brightness)
* Touch Bar will activate if you rest your hand too close to it, causing you to jump between web pages (for example)
* At least emojis are always nearby (stupid)
* Hey Siri needs a different command to distinguish it from the phone/watch or else it is basically useless (which means it is useless) - Apple, try Hey MacBook or something, Siri will not care, it is not a person, it does not actually exist, sacrificing usefulness to maintain this fiction is stupid
* The Ports - this has been beaten to death but it is still lousy and having to keep adapters and dongles and whatever plugged in is more than just inconvenient, it is makes the computer less comfortable to use and as near as I can tell, most adapters are actually a step *backwards* in speed of charging etc with nearly every device Apple or anyone else makes (it seems to take at least 2x as long to charge the iPhone through the USB-C to USB adapter)
* The mag-safe power adapter is gone, this computer will one bay go crashing to the floor because of the dog/child/errant foot. Losing this was stupid, stupid, stupid
* Keyboard is still not great and is still noisy
* Track pad is too large, takes up too much room and gets in the way
I may still send this back in exchange for a PC. The many years of projects on Apple software is the only discouraging me from doing that. I may just take the performance hit on the MacBook Air and buy an external SSD.
I’ll start with the good:
* Touch ID! A long-overdue addition, great for signing on quickly and securely.
* Fast 8th generation Intel processors (6-core i7 on mine) and super-fast SSD storage.
Now the bad:
* That keyboard! In their idiotic quest to make the Macbook Pro another fraction of a millimeter thinner, Apple took what was arguably the best laptop keyboard ever made (with “scissor-switch” keys that were super-comfortable, extremely reliable, and nearly dead-silent) and replaced it a couple years ago with “butterfly-switch” keys, which are noisy, uncomfortable, and so unreliable that Apple is now facing a class-action lawsuit as a result. The mid-2018 version adds a silicone membrane under each key to cushion each keystroke and make it quieter, but it’s still much noisier and much harsher to type on than my 2013 model. Reliability is still questionable, especially since (according to CNET) Apple says they didn’t make any engineering changes to address the problems.
* The TouchBar, which replaced the row of function keys. It was very confusing at first, since key selection and placement varied depending on which app was currently in use. I’m used to having the function keys in the same place every time, but the TouchBar was constantly changing. I finally discovered that in the System Preferences > Keyboard settings, I could customize the TouchBar to keep all my familiar keys in the same place, no matter what app I was using. It’s now much easier to use, but it’s no improvement over the old but still very-useful row of fixed function keys.
* The Retina screen. It’s good, but outdated. This is the 7th year Apple has used the same screen resolution, while virtually every other manufacturer now offers 4K screen options on their laptops.
* No ports except USB-C. Gone are the USB-A, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 2 ports, along with the SD card slot and even the mag-safe power port. Connecting older peripherals requires purchasing the appropriate dongle -- a cumbersome solution and a waste of money, considering Apple could have easily included additional ports in the machine itself.
If my old Macbook Pro wasn't starting to fail after several years of constant use, I would never have purchased this new model. At least I didn't have to pay full price, since it was 10% off during Thanksgiving week.
Apple hit it out of the park this year with the inclusion of the 6 core 8th gen Intel processors. Speedier DDR4 memory and insane SSD speeds help as this is 1 of the fastest Mac's you can get, all in a nice portable size with a great screen. The discrete Radeon 560x graphics with 4GB helps with video editing and other tasks. Battery is better than last years models as well.
I originally purchased the 13" 2018 MacBook Pro with i5/512GB SSD/8GB LPDDR3, but quickly found that the screen size was not for me. Its a pound lighter and little smaller, but I don't find carrying the 15" to be bothersome. Apple has done a great job at getting the build quality of these MacBook's down. While the 13" was fast and fluid, the smaller screen size is what ultimately made me switch. Of course the 15" feels snappier and smoother thanks to the 2 extra cores, faster DDR4 memory, and the discrete graphics. Both machines for 2018 are great upgrades over last years model.
