Apple released the new Pro Touch, the new Bar MacBook function. But as a touch screen, Bar Touch, like iPhone, there is the risk of broken screen, its maintenance costs or more expensive than the conventional full keyboard.
Bar Touch is a support 10 point touch glass screen, can be based on the task of automatic change display content in order to achieve different functions. In many ways, Bar Touch may be more comfortable than a touch-screen laptop. In the use of the new MacBook Pro, Mashable on the website of the well-known blogger Lance Ulanoff said: “ it has a matte texture, let your fingers can easily slide back and forth. This is important because many of the features are required to use a sliding gesture. ” he also points out: “ it has almost as many functions as the iPhone touch screen. ”
But there's a potential problem here.
Maybe everyone has seen iPhone broken screen — although this is not a good point, but we have to admit, as Apple's new Touch on the increase of Bar Pro, which increases the risk of broken screen.
Although the broken screen is often the result of human error, but, in reality, the accident happened. So in the process of using the notebook, if the broken screen how to do, this is the reality you have to consider the reality.
IFixit chief engineer Andrew dismantling? (Andrew Goldberg) said to Paul Mashable via email: “ a Retina display technology on the keyboard really makes the device more vulnerable and fragile. This piece of glass may break, this is the use of the keyboard before you do not have to worry about the matter. In addition, it may also be a problem to place such sensitive electronic products in the area of the beverage's potential splash, but we need to take it apart to see how it can be sealed. ”
Apple also added another feature on the keyboard: TouchID. Goldberg pointed out that the ID Touch on the right side of the Bar Touch and built in the power button, which is another possible fault point.
“ ID and TouchBar and Touch as the embedded T1 chip as its power supply in the plant is used in pairs (like iPhone Touch ID and the logic board must be paired as well), he said: ” “ therefore, if Touch Bar Touch rupture, ID must also be replaced together. ”
So, if you are thinking about buying a MacBookPro, but you can easily make the computer happen, you really need to take into account the.
New York Broolyn Mac support store staff Gomes said in a telephone interview: “ if considering the cost of labor, repair the current MacBook Pro keyboard is usually $199, but like the replacement of Touch Bar unit, may be more expensive than conventional keyboard. Currently costs $249 to $349, you can join the insurance coverage of the AppleCare plan, but the plan is to support the latest version of Pro MacBook parts replacement, we also need to confirm. ”
Currently, apple did not immediately respond to the matter.
