Where did you find that deal?For me I need 1tb min ssd as well. Best I can find for what I want is:
Apple 15" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, Intel Core i7 2.6GHz, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Radeon Pro Vega 20, Space Gray (Mid 2018) $3,949.00
Promo Discount: -$225
Free shipping, no tax
I am not sure if the i9 is worth the extra for me. Pro photographer/ videographer using Adobe CC, Lightroom, photoshop plus many 3rd party filters, add Ons, presets etc, Premiere Pro, Capture One, and Final Cut with external 4K monitors. Plus I like to do some but not a lot of gaming.
