Hi, I have an opportunity to buy a MBP in either of the two variants (I am getting them for the same price) 1) 2016 MBP with TB base model (2.9Ghz/256GB/8GB) ~ $1750 2) 2017 MBP without TB base model (2.3Ghz/128GB/8GB) ~$1703 My usage: My current usage will be for browsing, video streaming and occasional documents work. Not into heavy app usage at the moment, but that may change in the future. Requirements: I need a notebook that can do the above. I do understand that a much cheaper notebook or an iPad can be sufficient for me but right now this will be replacing my current primary laptop. So need a proper laptop. I would also like if the laptop is portable enough (Just as a personal preference I consider the 2016/17 MBP to be the sweet spot) Pricing in my country is a little different. All portable laptops here tend to be priced really high. Just to give you an idea: For the same price I can get a Dell XPS (15-7200U/256GB/8GB/Full HD) Hence I figured it is better to go with a MBP. This laptop will be with me for at least 5 years. I have no prior experience on Mac OS and would like to try that. Also the simple design and construction appeals to me and hence is a motivation. If for any reason you feel I should avoid the mac's you can inform me about the same. If possible you can share your experience also, that would help me decide.
