Why the MacBook’s Pro’s Touch Bar Matters | Tech.pinions - Perspective, Insight, Analysis

Final paragraphs from a long-term Touch Bar perspective

"I am concerned with the new MacBook Pros pricing but, to be fair, if this meets the needs of their pro customers, it will still sell well. However, if Apple’s new Touch Bar is the next evolution of Apple’s contribution to mobile user interface design, I suspect the Touch Bar will eventually be on all laptops Apple brings to market over time and, if history is our guide, the prices of these MacBook Pros will also go down in next generation models.
I realize there will be naysayers who will be skeptical about the role the Touch Bar plays in the future. But if there is one thing I have learned over the 35 years of covering Apple it is that, when they put a lot of thought and detail into user interfaces, it is best to take note. That is why I believe the Touch Bar not only matters but it and the special chip they use to power it will have more of an industry impact than most can see right now."
