Yes, it's really good. The touch bar certainly makes a lot of features easier to use (Idk if you're bachelor of arts with music but I know garage band has a lot of touch bar features. In general, apple has great quality anyway so I'd recommend all of them except for an air. Just not sure if you know, but the new MacBook Pro has no USB ports, to my knowledge, it comes with an adaptor.What laptop would you recommend I purchase? I'm completing Bachelor of Arts at UNSW and thinking of buying the 2016 MacBook Pro
I have a thinkpad t460s. Build imo is on par if not better than a mac (it's a enterprise model) and performance is better.Don't get a Mac. Get a Lenovo, they're about $1000 cheaper but has all the same functionality.
If you're set on getting a macbook, don't get the 2016. You want a convenient laptop that doesn't require you to bring anything else, i.e dongles. The 2016 laptop has no usb ports (only thunderbolt), and it is slightly faster performance-wise than the 2015, that's not to say that the 2015 performance is bad. If you're looking for laptops other than macbooks, maybe look for a zenbook, or a dell xps.
What's so important about USB ports? Can't I just use google drive. Also my subjects are all writing basedDefinitely a Mac, I don't think it matters which type really but it has to have USB ports!
If you are doing music or media based subjects you could get a pro, but if you are just doing more writing based subjects an Air would be fine!

IMO the Mac has better build quality than a T460s. The machined aluminium feels much sturdier. That being said, I am a fan of Thinkpads, but I recently swapped my T460 for a Yoga 260 for work.I have a thinkpad t460s.

Cost me $900 or so new.
