I've been mulling over the idea of dropping down to a 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar after owning a 15" model for upwards of eight years. Price isn't the main factor as I've gladly purchased the 15" MBP that met my spec both times, but with the reduced size and weight of the new MacBook Pro the 13" just feels oh so portable. Ironically I haven't ever transported my MacBook Pro, opting for using my iPhone on-the-go as it is very capable, but I feel like if I'm not going to jump over to a desktop like an iMac then I should go all-in on portability even if it's just for comfort around the house. Either way I'm looking into building a 4K monitor setup for it if I don't go for a new iMac instead. Side question: Is anyone here using the MacBook Pro as their keyboard/touch bar/touchpad and using a monitor as the primary display? I don't see that type of setup too often, but I feel like the MacBook Pro already has the best of all three worlds so there's no reason to purchase inferior external peripherals. My main concern is performance, as the non-Touch Bar 13" MBP didn't feel perfectly smooth to me and though the Touch Bar model is better-specced the GeekBench score is ~ 2000 points lower than my 2012 15" rMBP. After four years, performance-wise it could feel like a downgrade depending on how it feels in actual usage perhaps due to smaller improvements like faster flash memory. Going back to the title, as I suspected it would the iPhone 7 Plus' significantly better, more vivid display is readjusting my expectations to viewing the 15" rMBP's Retina Display as more dull and less satisfying. Considering I already use my iPhone for 98-99% of my computing tasks I'd like something that reinvigorates my passion for the Mac. The iPhone having a much more enjoyable display will only discourage my use of a laptop further. Evidently the iPhone, as it always has been, is still the best marketing tool for the Mac.
