    That's not a benchmark of the 2016 13". It's not even a 13" but rather the old 15".

    There is nothing OLD about those numbers.

    The benchmark was done recently, that's the only new part about it. How exactly does a benchmark of a 2015 15" rMBP 4980HQ Quad Core relate to the 2016 13" Dual Core?

    Check your own link. It clearly states it's a 15" with a 4 core / 8 thread i7 4980HQ.

    How far behind these numbers is it?

    From what I read the touch barless MBP has the same performance as the early 2015 13" MBP.
    Pretty pathetic given the price hike if you ask me.

    It doesn't matter how far behind it is. It's like complaining your 2.0L Mazda doesn't have as much horsepower as a 4.0L Ferrari... The one you linked to is a $2300 computer with a 47W CPU. Being as close as it is in performance while having a 15W CPU is actually impressive.

    As others have noted, you have linked the incorrect laptop. You linked a Quad Core, 15" Macbook Pro....also its running an i7. Even though its an older chip, its a much more powerful chip than what the new baseline MBP 2016 has. Which the baseline 13" will not be running (the baseline is running the baseline which a 6th gen i5 @ 2.0GHz)

    The new MBP (late 2016, base model) seems to get anywhere from 2400 - 3589 single core, and 5702 - 7229 multicore

    The baseline 2015 is ~3500 single core (some higher, some lower) and ~6800 multicore (again some higher some lower) with the higher clock (2.7 GHz vs 2.0 GHz)

    This makes sense, as the jump to Skylake isn't huge (its more about efficiency gains). If you have a 2015 model, it is more or less on par especially with general uses.

    Unless you're a pro, even a 2012 Retina MBP is still more than enough power for Safari and importing your photo collection, or creating family movies lol.

    Anyone who drops this kind of $$$ to upgrade from a 2015 to 2016 MBP...well could you throw away all that extra money to me too? I'd appreciate it.

    Unfortunately, you're right. There is a slightly higher multi core performance....but its not worth the upgrade at all. Like the gains you'd get from a slightly higher multicore are pointless/negligible for what people will be using the machine for.

    Heck, never mind the 2015 model....you can still use an even older macbook pro just fine (same or similar speed) as long as its tuned up.

    There is little difference between 2013-2016 MBP baselines...its not worth it at all to upgrade from one to the other. Or, its not worth throwing away money for what amounts to essentially the exact same experience.

    It's basically the same price as the 2015 model if you take into account that the base model in 2015 was 128GB for $1299 and the 256GB was $1499 - the same price as this model.

    Is this true? I'm debating between the 2015 MacBook Pro and the 2016 base model.
