If there were problems with it I imagine ViM users would probably be
more inconvenienced than Emacs users.  I haven't heard anything about
people's real-world experience. I know of no one with one of these
expensive little machines yet.  The stores around here don't even have
them yet.  I suspect you haven't gotten much feedback because very few
users (Emacs users anyway) have gotten a hold of these new machines yet.

If I was to choose between a 2015 MBP and the new touch bar MBP, no
question I'd just get the 2015 while I still can, and that has nothing
to do with the touch bar.  Way better bang for the computing buck. The
new machines are overpriced now.

But I am getting cynical in my old age.  My love affair with Apple that
started with OS X 10.0 has steadily waned over the years.  Lately I've
actually been impressed with the nicer Windows 10 laptops and tablets.
I'm quite shocked actually (at that fact).
