Smells like an expensive Apple Victory

Nice machine, but I don't think Apples back with a bang. The competition has caught up. The touch bar is nice/ok, but nothing really special. The price to design, performance, quality just is'nt good enough when you factor in the competitions progress.

And I really think comment like the one in the beginning regarding the touch bar - "As such, it’s fast and responsive in the way that only Apple devices seem to be" - makes a lot of people doubt Trustedreviews objectivity.

Right now I have an iPhone 6s (very content with it), but I came from a Samsung s6 Edge and it is as fast and responsive as my current iPhone (actually the iPhone keeps freezing after missed calls).

What a beautiful machine; industrial design at its finest. That Space Grey looks killer too. Simply one of the best, if not the best, laptops you can buy.

Michael, for what it's worth regarding your comment:

"Frustratingly, Apple removed the “Estimated Time Remaining” guide from the battery menu, so basically there’s no way to judge whether you’ll make it through the work day on a single charge. Apple claims it wasn’t all that accurate, fluctuating significantly – but at least it offered a guideline"

You can run the command in the terminal to get an estimated "time remaining" read out : pmset -g batt

in the terminal and you're given an estimated readout: -InternalBattery-0 (id=3342435) 11%; discharging; 0:27 remaining

My biggest complaint owning the 15" Space Grey top spec model, is the battery life.

I would highly recommend to anyone considering this model to buy a hard shell, when you're spending this kind of cash anyway, whatever the space grey coating is made of is very prone to dings / scratches & scuffs.
