    Upgrade to High Sierra, or Stay on Low Sierra?

    I just recently received my 2017 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 15". It's still on Sierra. Should I stay on Sierra, or is it safe to go to a non dev version of High Sierra? I was reading of the 560 issues with waking on High Sierra, and Im not sure if that was only a beta.
