After seeing the reviews and benchmarks for the newest MacBook Pro, I am genuinely impressed that the 15" Retina MacBook Pro I purchased in 2012 with a base price of $2200 (further discounted ~ $300) still holds up in benchmarks -- scoring about 40% better in GeekBench than the 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. The new 15" MacBook Pro scores about 30% higher, but it's hardly the type of performance increase expected from a new generation. Frankly where I'm most impressed is that in this modern age of Apple the longest I'd go without upgrading a product would be four years for my MacBook Pro. The iPhone feels outdated after a year and obsolete after two, and the iPad is constantly pushing new models that significantly improve performance and usage. Meanwhile the design and Retina Display on the 2012-2015 MacBook Pro are still unmistakably modern. It seems that anyone with a Retina MacBook Pro now could go 8+ years, two upgrade cycles, all the while still owning a modern Mac that performs on par or better than the latest base models. Disclaimer: I will still keep an eye on the market for the new MacBook Pro, but it isn't a must-have upgrade for me. I just came to the realization of how great of a bang-for-the-buck the Retina MacBook Pro was, and how it'll be the only modern Apple product that can keep owners satisfied for a good portion of a decade.
