If the keyboard in the 2017 MacBook, is the same as the one in the 2017 MacBook Pro, it is a great keyboard. Takes some getting used to at first, but now I love it.Same! Considering...
2016 MacBook for $879
2016 MacBook Pro for $1039
Or waiting for Black Friday or any other deal on the 2017 models. I was all set on the 2016 models, until I saw that the Kaby Lake 2017 models had a 20-30 % performance increase in benchmarks! Quite significant, but not sure if this shows in real usage.
Then there is also the better keyboard on the MacBook 2017..
Ah what the hell I might just wait. Apple should probably reduce the price to $999 on the MacBook soon anyway right?
Exactly, for what most people use a macbook for it's good enough. The keyboard is the biggest difference as there isn't a well needed 2nd usb c or TB3 port on the 2017's anyway. The SSD speed increase isn't a big deal either.If you have basic workflow -- word processing, media consumption, social media, web browsing -- the 2016 12" MacBook is more than enough.
