Apple introduced the first iteration of its MacBook Pro with Touch Bar a few months ago. Microsoft soon put Touch Bar support in Office for Mac apps. I’ve used both for several months and with a new Touch Bar Mac now available and Microsoft’s implementation clearly past beta, I thought it might be useful to discuss my experience using both together.

It’s certainly not the cheapest laptop you can buy, but in the months I’ve used one I’ve been consistently impressed by its stability, performance, and superb high-resolution display. I never really bought into ‘dongle-gate’, I’ve rarely had to worry about this at all, beyond storage. Thunderbolt 3’s ability to handle both input and output, as well as power supply, mean this is a much more flexible interconnect than what it replaces. Battery life has also been stable, though I have seen conflicting reports on this.
