Six Colors: MacBook Pro with Touch Bar review — Keyboard chameleon »

Last week, Jason Snell (Six Colors) wrote a review of the 13-inch MacBook Pro with function keys, which was a great look at the new exterior design of the MacBook Pro. This week, he published another review on the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. As you might expect, a good portion of the review focuses on the Touch Bar design and experience. It’s a great read, and makes a compelling argument for the new take on the function row.

Ultimately, the Touch Bar is a wacky idea that really works. This is an extension of the keyboard that does what no physical keyboard can do, while retaining the traditional approach of having a big display up there being manipulated by your hands on the control area down here.
