I'm gonna be starting work at Amazon next month. I'm gonna be giving back my MacBook pro to my current employer. Any chance I can get a MacBook Pro 15" with touch bar at Amazon? I'm so used to it at this point. Also what other laptops are offered?

- I actually prefer the smaller form factor since you know you’ll always be on-call and have to carry to your laptop with you 😜
And the Touch Bar is a gimmick. Never used it once on my old laptop from previous employer
- You can certainly purchase a 15” mbp with Touch Bar and have IT configure it for you! Lesson #1, frugality.
- Amazon ridiculeOnce you’re onboarded ask your manager to approve a MBP 15”. If they do, you’ll expense it and exchange your standard issue with IT.
- Amazon McKnziBzosLOL. You have no idea what Amazon is all about. Be ready to truly enjoy your life.
- Amazon amznl6sdeI’ve had a 15” MBP for the last 8 years, and I actually prefer the 13” now that I have it. 95% of my coding is when it’s docked anyway, and my backpack is noticeably lighter now.
- I have two: 15" MBP that my manager expensed when I joined, and a 13" company issued MBP. Latter is my travel companion (R&D involving field testing) and on-call warrior. Former is what I use in the office; it stays parked.
Both have top of the line specs for their class. Trust me, you don't want the shitty touch bar or the crap keyboard that comes with it.
