IFixit that sponsors all the bunch more anti Apple YouTubers (Rossman, Linus, etc.) is already trying to spin this around.

> trackpad impossible to click near upper edge & loose at bottom

Stopped reading here.

This is impossible even, trackpads on Macs don’t even click, they have a pressure sensor (Force Touch) and a vibration motor (Taptic Engine) that senses user finger pressure and makes a “bump” with the motor.

It doesn’t even click when it’s off.

They're much more likely to keep the Touch Bar and put it on the Magic Keyboard as well, so that developers will take it more seriously.
