Today, I’m picking up a new MacBook Pro 15″ with Touch Bar and Touch ID.
For the last year, I have been happily using a 2015 27″ 5K iMac as my daily driver for personal and school work. While I love my 5K iMac, there have been lots of times while working on papers, drawings, and programming assignments when I needed to get away from my desk and out of my home office. On those occasions, I used a work issued Dell Latitude. The Dell does a fine job (I’m the main buyer for work PCs and servers), but…it’s just not a Mac.
I have been thinking about what to purchase for a while now. The MacBook (One). A 13″ MacBook Pro (Escape). A 13″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID. I have finally settled on the 2016 15″ MacBook Pro with Touch Bar and Touch ID. Even now, as I’m getting ready to head to the Apple Store, I’m still not sure which color, space grey or silver, I am going to buy. I have owned many silver MacBook Pros, more so than any other color (white, charcoal, or black). My last MacBook, the 2009 17″ MacBook Pro was silver. I think this time, I will go with the space gray model. But who knows, I may change my mind at the last minute.
