The 2016 Macbook Pro is something I love, and I also love to hate it. So really, it's a love-love situation here. I most certainly feel the price is ridiculous, but at the same time, there is no other product I am willing to consider, and my desktop & camera gear will further deteriorate in resale value as time moves forward (those are what are funding in full the cost of the Macbook Pro). My frustrations with Apple's decisions are because I am inflexible... there are no other options. I feel like I'm voting between Trump (going to Windows), and Hillary (2016 Macbook), and Sanders doesn't sit in 2015. My intention is to downsize my camera equipment to a much much more basic kit. I am considering the 13-inch TB Macbook Pro, 8GB of RAM, on student discount. In Canadian dollars, it comes to about $2200 + tax. I could keep my desktop for other intense tasks (i7 2600k processor, 12GB of RAM, R9 380 4GB graphics). However, I could sell my desktop for $600 (current offer on Craigslist). The 15-inch Macbook Pro with the 460 graphics comes out to $3000 + tax. The sale of my desktop would cover $600, which is 3/4 of the cost increase of going with the 15-inch. The most intense game I play is Overwatch. I'm cutting back on gaming massively. I think the future of gaming for me will mostly be on console. What are your thoughts? Has anyone ditched their desktop to just go with one single Macbook Pro?
