Advice for those Considering the 2016 MacBook Pro Deals

See the MPG Mac wish list and MPG wishlists for computer gear at OWC.

Apple claimed the 2016 MacBook Pro sold like gangbusters. I believe it. But for pro users, it left a bitter taste. For those considering the huge savings now in play for the 2016 MacBook Pro, I did extensive commentary and testing about a year ago:

I am still using the 2015 Mac Book Pro and it’s perfect—built-in USB ports and SD card slot along with uilt-in Mini Display Port for connecting an external display are a big deal versus having to use adapters at extra cost and hassle.

The top-end 2015 MacBook Pro is the same speed as the 2017 MacBook Pro for all my work and the top-end 2015 MacBook Pro can still be purchased brand-new for $2649 at B&H Photo . Interesting that it is discounted only $250 while its 2016 successors get up to $1000 off.

Still: for web/email and light duty work, saving $500 to $1000 on the 2016 MacBook Pro has a lot of appeal over the 2017 model, which has all the same annoyances as the 2016 model. The 2017 model is faster and with a smidgen better battery life. Both have the same useless touchbar; the only 2016/2017 model I’d consider would be the 13" non-touchbar model, which actually has the best battery life.
