On Monday, Apple released its newest design for the Macbook Pro. One particular aspect of the design has fans talking — the notch. As The Verge noted, Apple's new Macbook Pro has a notch, and it's already sparked a ton of conversation online.
This new design for the Macbook Pro will be included in the 14-inch and 16-inch models of the device. Much like the notch that was added to the iPhone for the iPhone X launch in 2017, the notch on the Macbook Pro is a cut-out that sits at the top of the screen to house the camera system. The Verge noted that both the 14-inch and 16-inch Macbook Pros will have Apple M1 silicon inside. The new Macbook Pro is currently available for preorder and will hit shelves on Oct. 26.
Considering that this is a notable change for the Macbook Pro, it shouldn't come as a surprise to hear that some of the most diehard Apple fans have weighed in on the matter. Check out what some of them had to say.

Apparently, the notch really got in the way of a good thing for some Apple users. If it wasn't there, the new Macbook Pro could have been "perfect."prevnext
I’m sold, I’m sure I’ll get used to the notch since I’ve been staring at my iPhone X’s notch for years now https://t.co/23tDlHZglg— Fathimath Saleem (@NafaSaleem) October 18, 2021
While this Apple user isn't totally taken by the notch, it won't get in their way of purchasing the system. After all, they said that they got used to the notch on the iPhone.prevnext

This is the ugliest thing I've seen in years. https://t.co/QyPwuqLBsF— Roy (@BitterBoogies) October 18, 2021
The "notch" didn't exactly bring universal acclaim to the Macbook Pro. Clearly, some believe it to be on the "ugliest" side.prevnext
