i have this computer. I bought it around Christmas 2016.
It has been great and no issues. I process a lot of scientific data using some industry specific proprietary software and the program takes about 30 minutes to run.
If I got the fully decked out 15” MBP would I notice a significant difference?
I see it has more cores, but it is only 2.4 ghz and mine is 2.9 ghz. I am not even sure if this software utilizes multiple cores.
I don’t play video games or do any graphical intense stuff. Aside from this specialty program I just do basic email, spreadsheets etc. My only reason to upgrade would be to run this program faster as I have to run it sometimes 8 times a day.
