      Face ID and fingerprints don’t give you the legal protection of a Passcode. In multiple cases, people have been ORDERED to unlock a phone/computer via fingerprint, under the reasoning that their fingerprint (or your face) is a piece of physical evidence. They CANNOT order you to enter a passcode. Face Recognition and Fingerprint ID are OPTIONAL on all iPhones and Macs, don't use them.

      After 3 or 4 years when the battery will no longer take a charge, just throw the Mac in the trash?
      The battery should be user replaceable. I too HATE the touch bar.

              I purchased the 2017 MacBook in May,
              Now they bring out this, makes me mad how apple doesn’t announce these changes few months before release, but guess they have to off load there old stock to suckers like us . Unfortunately no return option for me as it few months old now .for me the upgraded version would have been nice . Grrrrrr apple

                              @Lai Wei Thanks for the info. But I think, the new MacBook Pro is not yet available here in our country Philippines.

                              You can return that upon manager approval. I just did it 2 days ago with 26days of purchasing.

                                        Makes me sad to see that now the base model MacBook Pro is now more powerful than my 2017 touchbar 13", but also happy that they are making them faster.

                                        Just replaced the battery on my 2013 MacBook Pro so I’m vested in that. It’s holding up nicely and keeps getting updates

                                              zg_hunt the razer 13 inch laptop has a dedicated gpu but it’s much thicker and only works when plugged in and will switch to intel hd while on battery. The T2 chip sounds interesting tho

                                              Andoy33 it’s too difficult to put in a dedicated gpu into a 13” size.. it would cause major issues with overheating and there just isn’t enough room for the way apple designs their laptops. But for a 13” laptop the MacBook actually performs really well thanks to the t2 chip and the performance of the quad core chip.

                                                I actually like the Touch Bar. It just seems like the people that don’t use it are the people that still right click to copy and paste something rather than use keyboard shortcuts.

                                                Touch Bar is so useful in photoshop, Final Cut Pro, safari, Xcode, and even djay pro, all of these applications I use daily and the Touch Bar works wonders.

                                                              Upgrading the base model to 256gb and to the 1.7GHz quad‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i7 processor is the same price as the 256gb model that comes with the 2.4GHz quad‑core 8th‑generation Intel Core i5. What differences will i see with these two processors?? and which would you personally go with

Its normally 15 days for most unless youve bought something expensive, then its like either a month or 45 days i believe.

                                                                  For example, the differences between the graphics chip or CPU changes and how this affects us? Must be loads of info out there about these component performance differences to discuss?
                                                                  Or what about the multiple problems reported with the T2 chips and it’s crashes?

                                                                  I’d rather have a well thought out video to watch than a cheap and uninteresting advert for Apple.

And now you should be able to get 2018 13" MBP for $200 less.. which means a choice of upgraded RAM or storage (which means more than the spec bump of 2019). So great time to get the last model + more storage/RAM! ;)
