I just bought my first MacBook Pro 2016 – Why not MBP 2017? It’s $200 cheaper and got multiport bonus with it. The hardware is very similar, got slightly less speed than the new one (2.9 GHz), the same SSD 256GB and the same VRAM for the graphic card.
The MBP 2016 is my first apple product. Finally I pulled the plunge. It was very long time since I can remember wanted to buy one, but thought it was to be overpriced. Very expensive indeed. But nonetheless, I just got one. The MacBook Pro got high specs than the Air version which intended just to be used for light computing work. However, once I bought it, I still don’t know what to do with my new MacBook Pro. It’s very different than I used to think it was. It has Thunderbolt 3 with USB-C ports, which made older model just out of date.
