Haven't owned a computer in 2.5 years. Had a 13" non-retina MBP before that. Have used nothing but my 6+ and 7+, along with my iPad Air 2 since, and honestly, it's been fine. I recently took a job that will require me to work remotely, and with a new baby, we're managing more pictures than we used to. Work said I can either use their ancient 17" MBP or get my own. Me and the wife have decided to get one to have at home. My workload for personal use is basic email/web browsing/netflix. If I'm using it for work, I'll be using 3 Chrome Windows each with 6-8 tabs open at a time for 10 hours straight, including making calls (through one of those windows on our softphone). I also do very light recording for music. 1, maybe 2 tracks at a time into Logic Pro X. No synths, heavy multitracking, or anything like that. Is there any reason to get a 15" MBP? I'm really leaning towards the base 13" non-touch bar version (which I can get from a friend who's an Apple employee for 15% off, and ship to a state with no sales tax). I went to the Apple Store recently and pulled up my work setup on it and it worked flawlessly on the 13 and the 15. I know I should get the 16GB of ram, but I'm not sure it's worth it for how I use it.
