I bought one of the new XPS 13s and, while there is a lot to love about that machine, I'm fed up with Windows 10. I'm a musician and am in love with Logic, Mainstage, and just how well my audio interfaces work with my "Hackintosh," and I want a MacBook. I'm looking for an i7, >=8GB ram, and >=256GB SSD. I took a journey to the Apple Store today, and I think I want the size of the 15. The portability of my XPS is cool, but the screen seems small. I'm probably going to keep my gaming computer, so I don't think I need the dedicated GPU. Here are my concerns: 1. The realitive "outdatedness" of the current 15" Pros, and 2. "Staingate." We don't know how long until Apple updates the Pros, and what they will be like when they do.. Which scares me. I don't think that the ~5% CPU upgrade would be worth having to buy a bunch of adapters and docks because the new Pro only has USB C/TB3 ports. I'd rather have have the current MBP with a port configuration that suits me and hardware that is a little older. But... I'm wondering how well this 2 year old hardware would hold up for 4 or 5 years to come. I just started reading about the "staingate" thing, and that's enough to make me hold off. Any thoughts or comments on their experiences?
