I just learned that Apple has already partially eliminated the touch bar and will seal the deal with M3 Macs.

I absolutely hate my touch bar, and this may be my inducement to buy a new MBP.

Have you looked at the just released MacBook Air? Apparently it is very popular with the developer community.

And a slightly older model may be a smarter purchase. See this article. There does not seem to be a touch bar.


On a Mac since 1984.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys, but a new Mac is a down-the-road thought.

At the moment, I'm looking at the possibility of needing both a new mattress and a new desk chair, and my resources can be stretched only so far. frown

I'm not really ready for a new Mac other than to get rid of the touch bar, but it sure is an appealing thought.

(In addition, I may need to replace the keyboard and trackpad in my MBP to make it more salable, and that seems to be a major $$$ proposition.)

Ha! I followed your link, and the price has gone up $100 already.
