Why does everyone worry ? In 1 year you'll have 32gb and whatnot in the same form factor, called Macbook Pro S

Sarcasm? No one can do it on Windows or Linux.

Shit keyboard, no Esc key, sticker-shocker price, no good GPU (apple doesn't even make VR ready Mac!)

But hey, trackpad works!

So my current MBPr 15" with 16GB RAM is more than I'll ever need. Here are the apps that I have open all at once: Motion, FCP X, Compressor, Illustrator, Photoshop, Sublime, Excel, Parallels running Windows 7, Outlook for Mac, MAMP with Apache/MySQL running, Espresso, Chrome, Messages, and Calendar. The system rarely blinks, and my current uptime is over 4 weeks.

These "pro" users are just a bunch of whining pussies who are disappointed that Apple doesn't stuff every imaginable kitchen sink goodie that serves only a handful of hardcore gamers. That's really the elephant in the room: gamers. Apple doesn't give a fuck about them. If you need to duct tape 10 GPUs onto your Razer Blade Stealth to play Titanfall 2, then go the fuck ahead. But don't tell me you need 32GB of RAM to run Xcode. Cry me a river.

It really isn't. Nobody buys Macs for gaming. It's not gamers complaining.

@VDI: The "pro" users want to use Atom and other non-native bullshit, where opening a 100k file generates 10G of html, which Chrome needs 20G to display. You can bring pretty much any computer in existence to its knees by using sufficiently inefficient programs.

True that. Gamers may like to troll and point out how overpriced and awful Macs are for gaming, but they take frequent breaks to play games.

Now the bar is as low as being happy of the new trackpad not being impossible to use for bad implementation
Great!!!!
I can use the trackpad and there is not problems with palm detection!!!!
Not directly related buy in July of 1969 Armstrong walked on the Moon.
Almost 50 years after that we are happy for Apple not fucking a fuck trackpad.

The total cost of the Apollo program reported to Congress was $25.4 billion.
Apple spent much more money than that in R&D to produce after 5 years the Touch Bar.
They could have done amazing things. Lame.

For some reason other platforms' touchpads really suck. Apple's implementation is somehow an order of magnitude better than everyone else, even though everyone's using synaptics.

Maybe they just give it interrupt priority?
