I find what Apple did with this one disgusting. Not the computer. The computer is perfect, probably best in the market. But the pricing thing? Keeping the old models the same price and putting the new ones on top of it? Bloody disgusting. My friend has a question and she needs consult on buying a Mac. Let's assume she is not LOADED with money, like you have to be to buy the new models. She is going to design school and she is using heavy design software and she needs a strong computer. The touch bar thing is not so important for her. So my question here is, performance wise, does it REALLY worth it investing in the new model, or she can buy the older model and get a computer that is as strong (at least almost) just without the Touch Bar, which can ACE the design school stuff? Is the new model significantly more powerful? And if it does worth it to buy the new one, is it critical (performance wise) to buy the 512 GB model in stead of the 256 GB one?
