Don't know why are people getting hyped about touchbar when windows laptops having touchscreen can do much better functions.

I agree TouchBar is just a gimmick...we all know why Apple would not make any Macbooks touchscreen...because of iPads. Touch-screened Windows laptop has around a couple of years now and it is a good thing, the only reason I have not got on board simply because of Windows...

Touch Bar ? Hey Tim touch this ! WTF is this mess with Touch Bar that is useless. Also you need $350+ of adapters to use all your current peripherals and the processors are still 2 years behind. Tim Cook may like being bent over and taking it in the ass but we don't. "HELLO" Microsoft Surface now that's innovation. Sell your stock or you are going to get burned badly. All Tim Cook is doing now is putting lipstick on pigs. Maybe the next iMac update will include Hypercard and a TRS-80 motherboard.

How about you touch this! Mess with something you haven't even used yet? It was just clarified that your using it based on whatever app you're using with it even in ways without the apps (like emoji keyboard when typing for example). 2 years behind my ass! Tim like being bent over? I think you like to since you're clearly asking for it! Touch bar has the name retina because it's like the touch screen which bring in certain iOS functions to the Mac so I'd say it's about on par with the surface (nevermind the removable keyboard, but who cares) All Tim is really doing to giving what we wanted for so long and has now given us a computer with touchscreen functions (like I said about the touch bar based on what it does).
