Marco Arment doesn’t like the Force Touch Trackpad.
The simulated click vibration does feel like a click, but not a good one. It offers three different firmness settings, none of which feel anywhere near as good as Apple’s trackpads with real buttons. It feels like what it is: mushing my finger against a fixed pane of glass that’s emulating the feel of a button and almost getting there, but not getting there.

I actually love the trackpad on my new MacBook Pro. I know it’s not clicking, but I still don’t believe it. I’ve been in multiple situations where I’ve had to turn my laptop off to prove to someone that it’s a simulated click.
He’s right that the keyboard is not good, though. I tried out a new MacBook and decided on a MacBook Pro partially because of the keyboard.
