Upon purchasing my 2017 13in nTB Macbook Pro I was having a little bit of buyers remorse as I anxiously awaited my products delivery. My Configuration: i7, 512 SSD, 16gb of RAM https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3468305 Did I just make a huge mistake by purchasing a maxed out nTB macbook pro? I'm coming from a 2012 15in MBP so I was worried I'd be losing a dramatic amount of performance. My Opinion After 1 Month of Use: I have absolutely zero buyers remorse. MY GOD is this thing portable compared to my 8lb beast of a machine. My main concern was that I'd be losing out on the TouchBar and the 2 additional ports, in exchange for better battery life. But after messing around on my computer for the past couple of weeks I think it's a bit silly to have 3-4 different devices hooked up to a 13in LAPtop all at once. The additional ports on the TB MBP are merely a luxury rather than a necessity; especially when you consider the right side of the computer is stifled by something like 75%. Don't quote me on that but they had to because of the lack of internal space. If you're indecisive like me, save the money and buy the 2017 nTB. Upgrade the SSD and RAM instead!
