Hi all – was looking for some buying advice. My 2011 imac is on life support and I’ve decided to go ahead and buy a Macbook Pro during Black Friday. I’m not a computer programmer or graphics designer but I do like spending time on my computer and, after 4 years of saying “I want one”, I’m finally making the plunge and treating myself to a Macbook Pro. I definitely want a 15” pro strictly for the screen size. I’d also prefer to upgrade to a 512 SSD. Everything else can be standard offering. I could opt for a 2015 Macbook Pro (approx. $2k), a 2016 Macbook Pro ($2099) from B&H Photo or the 2017 Macbook Pro ($2500). Any thoughts on what the best route is? I’ve heard about issues with the keyboard. Ideally I’d like to future proof as much as possible but the differences, particularly between the 2016 and 2017 are minimal at best. UPDATE - After much deliberation, I've opted instead to go with a 21.5" Retina iMac and a new 10.5 iPad pro. There is a TON of excellent information in this thread for anyone who is interested. I based my decision more on need - I use my imac for leisure not work and don't really need the portability since I use my ipad (original air) for that (although it's getting long in the tooth now with all the OS updates). For the price of the macbook I wanted, I can get a new imac and the ipad pro (plus sell my old ipad) so decided to go that route instead. Anyone just joining, please keep the discussion going.
