    The touchbar is awesome, but not exactly useful when designing. Screen real estate is what I'd think about more unless you plan to plug it into an external monitor. Some small details about the updated macbook in general I've noticed the past few weeks is that the form factor is noticeably more compact than before. Thinner, lighter, etc. The keyboard feels really nice now and the larger trackpad is great. Dongle game sucks but it's nice having a simpler charging cord that can be plugged in on both sides.
