I recently placed an order for a 2017 MBP nTB with n i7 2.5-4GHz, 512ssd, 16ram. I got the educational discount and added the educational bundle. Paid $2100 plus $200 for the apps bundle = $2300 and I'm concerned I paid too much for the "base" MacBook Pro that supposedly has a worse CPU. And I'm approaching the 15in MBPs price. Things I like about the nTB- Better battery, bigger battery, slightly cheaper, and no touch bar. Plus the feel of tactile keys is nice and I know Apple with drastically improve the TB in years to come. This is basically the first gen. After placing my order I discovered the 13TB has better graphics abilities, 2 additional ports, a potentially much faster 3.5ghz CPU compared to the 2.5ghz (both i7) and better wifi compatibility. What does the wifi differences equate to in real world useability? Plus the TB has two fans does this mean it can work for longer at that 4.0ghz mark for longer? Or will they both be able to essentially sustain near their turbo boosted ghz's for nearly the same time? And can some explain what the 512ssd will do for me? Sorry for all the questions! It's a lot of money and I want my computer to be future proof for 3-5 years. For the extra $150 should I bite the bullet on the touch bar and attempt to adopt it?
