TechBuzz: This New MacBook Is Making Us Feel Mixed Emotions

And not all of them are good. 

In fact, we're a little concerned - but hey, every rebellious form of technology has to start with frustrating the elders not ready to adapt, right?

The newest MacBooks have removed the F1-F12 keys and replaced it with a row called the Touch Bar. And aside from some minor design flaws (apparently the delete key is right under the Touch ID fingerprint reader, according to Wired), it seems to have an interesting addition to this new design of the MacBook. You will now be able to navigate your way through Mail, Photos, and even Final Cut using this design, along with a larger touch pad that has just been implemented at the bottom half of the computer.

We're seriously imagining how funny this will look at first watching someone use their new MacBooks.

Other disturbances in the MacBook Force are these: There's no magsafe power connector, nor is there an SD Card reader. Though there are USB-C type ports, 3 in fact, according to Mashable, who's got one of those lying around? #AnotherAdapterAwaits

For those who don't know (don't worry, I had to Google it myself):

So basically, what we're saying is that you're going to end up with something like this:

Select Series USB-C 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub and Gigabit Ethernet Adapter - Monoprice.com

The Monoprice USB-C 3-port USB 3.0 Hub and Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is the easiest way to expand the capabilities of a computer with a single USB-C port, such as the new Apple MacBook® and the Google Chromebook™. This adapter provides three high powered USB 3.0 Type-A ports, each capable of 5Gbps data speeds for connecting high speed external peripherals.

Just so you can use your devices that are still USB-A, and then throw on top of that, that you'll need one for your SD Cards, if you use them.

 

Seems like Apple is going to be selling a loooooot of adapters this Christmas, with already a grand asking price for said MacBooks.

At the very least, VERY LEAST... We've got a headphone jack on this MacBook.

Now... Where's my flying car...
