    The base 2017 version is supposedly faster on benchmarks than the fastest 2016 nTB or TB MBP so I'd go with the 2017 version unless you really need/want the Touch Bar for some reason.

    Only you can decide if something is "worth" it to you. I personally despise the touchbar, trackpad, keyboard, etc., but appreciate the improved speakers, screen, and graphics, so if Apple ever extracts its head and makes a 15" without the touch bar and with an improved keyboard/reduced size trackpad I'd likely buy one.

    Isn’t the keyboard the same on the touch bar and 2017 MacBook Pro?
