It’s been eight months since I purchased my MacBook. I’ve come to accept the little annoyances it comes with and still grief the greater annoyance like the touch bar, because to be honest it’s still one of Apple biggest mistake yet everyone seems to be buying it even though I doubt anyone uses it. 

I updated OSX to Mojave like a month ago. It was a rough upgrade as even the Location Services wasn’t working, and thus the Maps application was giving me a lot of problems for the occasional search. Overall… the dark mode feels half-assed, not like Windows 10 dark mode is any better. I’ve seen better dark themes and I feel both operative systems are failing to deliver a good dark mode experience. 

I think my biggest problem with it right now remains to be the touch bar. It’s simply one of the most horrible ideas ever put in practice. Removing the function keys from the MacBook keyboard sure made me feel hopeless… because games like Guild Wars 2, and any MMORPG that uses function keys are rendered useless on the new MacBook Pro models. 

The keyboard still feels shallow as ever. 

All in all… it’s not the worst thing ever. I can do 99.9% of the things I’m set to do and have yet to come across any barriers. Needless to say, I would happily trade my MacBook Pro for a Surface Book 2.
