I don't know if my preference is just too particular, but I just can't seem to like the new build of the MBP. The older 13 and 15 inch models feel sturdier to me, and a lot nicer to type/click on. This is partly due to the different keyboard, and I'm guessing the bigger build 'cushioning' the clicks on the trackpad. Idk, I found it strange how no-one talked about any of these points in reviews. Technically, there's no reason to prefer them, but I can't help it. I really wish the old 13" had a higher resolution, it would probably be my main laptop.
