I'm guessing you're joking. But in case you're not.... I'd check the Apple Store for the latest model that has that finger-print feature.

Back when you were homeless you posted the specs for the Macbook that you bought. It was the hottest unit available.
I suspect that you have to do something in "Settings" to record and use the "touch ID" feature.

Possible raggie interpretation: He has a MacBook, paid for the TouchID feature, but the computer keeps asking him to type his password, rendering the extra feature useless.

If this is the case, the TouchID needs to be setup and learn your fingerprint. I program mine with more than one fingerprint.

Also, there might be a way to have the system learn your fingerprint more reliably. At least on the older iPhones with the physical home button, keeping the settings screen up with the TouchID allows for "refinement" of the programming by lightly resting the programmed finger in the button and the system highlights the corresponding print, acknowledging more data on that print.

Here is my Mac. Usually they get stolen. This one came back with no accessories. I forget my password and don't have anything besides an HDMI cable with it. It is made in murrica too.

@raggie33 I understand your problem, it annoys me every day too. This is not a fault, it is the 'correct' behaviour according to Apple.
The idea is for security, it makes it harder to spoof your fingerprint. But man is it annoying!!

Is burglary that common where you live?
Where I live now it used to be really bad until I stopped breaking into houses shortly after the police caught the wrong person.

No some people I know are less than honest. I lost some Macbooks that way. One didn't have the hard drive and the other had a keyboard with French characters. I hope they dont get any use out of them.

This Mac Pro came back from the gov.

Oh it is nothing too exciting. It is past statute of limitations and I already published an article about it. I used a maglite D to do so and never found much of value. I could have made more money working at 7-11 than the time I spent house robbing. Earlier this year I tried calling a local law firm to try and help get that man's name cleared but they didn't seem so interested in helping.

Well here is the thing when you have strict laws it is unlikely that you would commit a crime. Like if you are looking at getting beheaded or have a hand chopped off you probably would think twice before doing something wrong. Here in USA the police rarely investigate crimes unless it involves a traffic stop and prison is more fun than a church camp. That really fails to serve to deter crime.

When I did the break ins I was a minor. I knew they couldn't do a whole lot if I somehow got caught. The irony for me is now I am opposed to such things.
