It struck me odd how so many people took to the Internet announcing their disgust that the new MacBook Pro isn't made for developers. One particular blog post stood out amongst the rest as just being laughable. The glaring fact is that no-one had used it yet and were basing their opinions on a suggested outcome.

Glad to see that Adam Geitgey reserved his opinions until after he used it.

I’m not here to change your mind about the MacBook Pro. Yes, it’s probably too expensive and more RAM is better than less RAM. But everyone posting complaints without actually using a MBP for a few weeks is missing out on all the clever things you can do because it is built on USB-C. Over the past week or two with a new MacBook Pro (15in, 2.9ghz, TouchBar), I’ve been constantly surprised with how USB-C makes new things possible. It’s a kind of a hacker’s dream.
