No Escape button.
that is not good for bootcamp support.
Maybe it will be there on the 15 incher.
You should try remapping your caps lock key to esc. Keep that carpal tunnel from acting up.
BUT THEN HOW WILL I YELL AT PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET?
Gently use a shift key to show your anger.
Or ctrl + c
Remapping is fine, but have you used that new keyboard? The Macbook keyboard is not pleasant to use. The lack of travel of the keys results in a very harsh typing experience. And being a professional device built for developers, designers, writers, etc where the keyboard is a critical part of the experience...well let me just say that mechanical keyboards have been coming back for a reason.
I can live with remapping Caps lock to escape, it's the keyboard itself that worries me.
Don't worry, it's good. I have it on the MacBook for the last 1+ year and it's OK. I mean, it will not take my mechanical keyboard away, but between this and the rMBP, I don't really have a preference. It took a little while to get used to it, but it's fine, the bigger keys are great!
The only thing I dislike is the arrow buttons layout, I hate that they made them to be uniform, I liked the gap and it helped in setting your fingers right without looking.
This is cool and all, but as someone who uses the Macbook PRO as a mobile workstation I am more interested in enterprise features. Docking capabilities, strong hardware (particularly stronger discrete video), good heat management, and upgradability that is lacking. If Apple can't really bring that home I will be waiting at least one more year before I upgrade.
It's a leaked image, not a press release. Relax...
Considering this image came from system files within Sierra, I wouldn't expect the final product to be much different.
Though Ethan is correct, its a leak not a press release, I agree. This is cool, but I am waiting for the specs of the machine. If the graphics card isn't upgraded, heat management, and agreed, upgradability, then I will have to buy an HP or something.
Upgradability won't happen.
They could at least stop soldering the ram in.
Am I the only one who thinks the content in that bar looks off? The spacing is uneven, and that cancel button looks weird.
Sigh! Is this really necessary?
Exactly. Why do we need a tiny display when we already got a big display in front of us? For touch gestures? We got the trackpad for that.
Agreed. It's very gimmicky. Reminds me of old Windows machines before the modern Microsoft era that had touch displays on towers (Sony was big on that), etc. .
Hm.. we don't even know how it will be used yet.. We might probably be like 'well... it's obvious'.
That's where the iphone is going. I bet they'll remove the home button at the iphone's bottom and have the touch screen be the entirety of the front panel. Just like they seem to put the touch sensor under the touch panel here.
like this mockup
Ew...I hope not.
Nice mockup. "Press any key to unlock"
Yeah that is a bit weird... It has been slide to unlock as long as I can remember.
And touch on edge to edge screen must be very frustrating to work with.
Looks similar to how the Lenovo Carbon X1 strip works (which is rather nice for stepping through and customising functionality)
Is it me or there is a new typeface used in the keys? San Francisco?
The new Magic Keyboard and the MacBook's keyboard use San Francisco.
Oh whoops. I guess I didn't notice because I'm stuck with my 2013 Retina MBP. :P
The logo is set in San Francisco too. It’s a shame they’ve brought that back; it’s completely unnecessary to advertise the brand right there under the screen. They’re not Samsung, after all.
Yeah. Hopefully it's an oversight in the comp and they actually kept it absent.
