I just got a new company notebook: a brand new Touch Bar MacBook Pro 15 with plenty of dongles!
I very welcome this notebook because it is smaller and lighter than his predecessor. Furthermore, the display of my previous one was damaged a little bit, and the new display is gorgeous!
The company build of the OS has had some flaws, so I have had to set it up from scratch. Beside VPN and antivirus, everything is already running fine.
Next week I will be traveling a lot, and this will be a good chance to check battery life and if the USB C power bank is as helpful as expected.
The second question is if Touch Bar is useful or not. I already utilized BetterTouchTool to customize the Touch Bar. But time will show if this will speed up my work or not.
My experience so far is, that the keyboard seems to be a little bit noisy and this is a problem during conference calls and in meetings. I try to type as calm as possible, but I fail on this more often than I like. On the other hand unlocking the MacBook with my fingerprint is very fast, and this is especially handy because I'm not wearing my Apple Watch all the time.
I will report back on the real work practicality of this notebook.
My USB C power bank seems to be too weak to power a Mac Book Pro 15 so I left it at home this week.
Because I have used a Mac Book Pro 13 and a Mac Book quite a lot in the past, I still need to get used to the size of the 15'' Mac Book.
