Sure, and that's probably an argument to keep my stock, but not one to buy a new MBP to replace my ancient (mid 2010) MBP-17". Instead I'll probably go with the Dell with the mobile Xeon, 32GB ECC RAM, etc. Of course I still want MacOS, so that's the main requirement: whatever hardware I get has to be able to run as a hackintosh.

Waited years for an update and this is it? Seriously? A touch bar? That's what they added? It took years to add something that other manufacturers added and abandoned?

What I'm most pissed about is that they are offering a "pro" system with a max of 16GB of RAM.

I'll be looking elsewhere and seeing what better, truly "pro" laptops can be hacked to run MacOS.

I'd love a very water resistant phone. Just the other day I took a step backward trying to see better onto my roof and nearly fell into the pool, fully clothed, phone in pocket. Did the whole whirly-arms thing which saved me. So yeah, if the expensive computer in my pocket were waterproof, that'd be great.

OTOH, given SSDs and the inability to guarantee the erasure of all data on the drive, unencrypted data should never hit the drives at all, and the key should of course also never be stored on the same media (unencrypted).

That said, only my newer systems use encrypted volumes. My old drives I take apart and shatter/melt the platters.
