After Apple's "Hello again" event on Thursday, you might have been digging out your credit card, or humming the classic song, "Is That All There Is?" The new MacBook Pro lineup has a cool new Touch Bar to offload contextual buttons and commands from the screen to the keyboard, as well as four Thunderbolt 3 ports to connect all the dongles you can imagine. Will that be enough for Pro customers? For all of us who who will never get to buy a new MacBook Air? For you? Join Glenn and Macworld Senior Editor Roman Loyola as they discuss what happened and what's next.
