Getting used to the 16 inch MacBook Pro

WHen I started my new job they got me a 16" MBP. This is the second MacBook I have used that isn't a 13 inch.

It have taken quite a lot of getting used to.

I tried to get them to buy me a 13" instead, but I just didn't want to make a big thing out of it.

How is it compared to my MacBook Escape?

  • It is a lot bigger
  • The keyboard is way better
  • The touch id is awesome
  • Web Camera is still shit

Except for between 2010 and the end of 2012 I have used computers that are 13 or smaller. And it took quite a lot of getting used to for me to enjoy using this computer on my lap. One large problem was that I had a hard time figuring out how to balance it.

I did not know this before I got it. But I did balance my 13 on one leg a lot. This does not work at all with this one. Another thing is that I used to have the palm of my hands on each corner and along the side of the laptop. This is another thing that doesn't work with something this large.

After 2.5 months of using it I have started to enjoy it more. But I'm still fairly certain that I'd probably have picked a 13" would I pick one myself. All of this might change in time.
