Donna,

Yeah I find it to flat and very little definition

I spent a couple of hours using one yesterday and it really takes a lot of 
getting use to.

I agree with Simon here.  I am not a fan of the MBP keyboard.  I find it more 
difficult to orient to the keyboard, and I make many more typos than I did on 
my 2013 Air..
Cheers,
Donna

Hi Rhonda,

I’ve only had a shortish time with the pro mac book with touch bar so can’t 
really say a lot other than, go to a store if you can and have a look at one to 
get the feel of them.

One of the things I’m not currently a fan of is the flatness of the keyboards 
in the new mac books be they the new Macbook 12 inch or the 13 and 15 inch mac 
book pros,

Give them a try and see which one feels better for you then go back to apple 
and price what your after.

Good luck.

Subject: More About Buying My First Mac

Hi All,

Thank you for your very informative and helpful responses to my questions. I 
can definitely see the advantages of buying an Air, but as has been mentioned, 
Mac will discontinue this model at some point.  I mostly plan on doing e-mail, 
web surfing, and word processing, but might also like to do some recording, and 
utilize this computer to do work from home.  I also like to chat on line with 
Skype and maybe other programs.  For years, I’ve used a Windows desktop and 
would like a machine that’s powerful, yet portable.

Whether I get the Air or the Pro, would there be any other advantages to a unit 
with a touch bar, other than easy insertion of emojis and Touch ID?  That’s 
something I’ve not gotten into yet, and honestly don’t think I’d be doing it 
too much.  A couple of friends have indicated that units with touch bars have a 
better processing speed, but is that really significant or necessary?  In 
looking at Macs recently, I notice that ones without touch bars have the 
function keys that we’re used to on Windows computers, but the other ones use 
the FN and other keys to simulate these functions.

Will keep looking, but meanwhile, thanks for your valuable input.  Should you 
have any other questions, please let me know.

Rhanda
