It will always be strange to me that Apple, the company which more or less made multi-touch displays ubiquitous with the iPhone, won’t put one on their laptops.

“Oh we have the iPad for that. Just get an iPad with a keyboard.”

But what if I want to run Mac OS programs?

“Then you need to have a MacBook too.”

It’s crazy. The iPad Pro is in the ballpark of power that I’d want in a portable productivity machine, but without the sleek aluminum build and keyboard.

I guess that Apple could try building a convertible. It’s working absurdly well for Microsoft’s surface lineup right now.

The whole non-Apple computing world has moved to touch screens on laptops, at almost every single price bracket. The only advantage the touch bar has is that it looks cool…but I’d still struggle to use it day to day.
