Hey, I finally got a new computer! I’ve been waiting for Apple to make a new MacBook Pro for *ages*, so when they released the new 15″ MacBook Pro W/ Touch Bar, I was one of the first to line up to buy it! I had the same reservations that many people had (dongle nightmare, 16 GB RAM?, etc), but I really need a workhorse laptop for…work! Anyways, I made an unboxing video to show what it comes with, and I snapped a few pix of it.

It really is gorgeous, and I’m excited to start using it! It’s the first computer, laptop or otherwise, I’ve ever owned that doesn’t have a physical power button. Cool stuff! The addition of Touch ID (the little touchpad at the far right of the Touch Bar) seems like a great touch, and should make unlocking the laptop a little faster.

It didn’t really come with a whole lot of accessories, just a USB cable, a wall AC charger, the standard Apple stickers, a quick-start guide, and a little sheet of warnings and compliance statements.

Keyboard is super satisfying to type on, we'll see how useful the Touch Bar over time. Keyboard is super satisfying to type on, we’ll see how useful the Touch Bar over time.

Overall, I’m really excited about this one! As you’ve probably noticed; I haven’t been updating this site very much as I’ve been spending more and more time working on my primary project, 3D Central! I’ll be using this MacBook Pro primarily for 3D modeling, teaching, and video editing, so I’m excited to see how well it performs! Can’t wait to see how 2017 goes!
