    I have the mid. I wasn't aware that there were Early and Late 2015 models unless they are 13 inch models. My 15 mid runs great.

    I also have the 13 but it's my work-supplied system. I usually use my 15 for work though and the 13 mostly sits in a cabinet.

    Both are nice as they can drive 4K external monitors.

    The fans on the 13 come on more frequently with moderate workloads. Sometimes just displaying a video (along with a bunch of passive applications) can run the fan.

    I have an early 2015 MacBook Pro, which is the smaller, less powerful 13 inch model from that year. There is no such thing as a "late" 2015 MacBook Pro. I really like the 13 inch model because of its great battery life, high-resolution display, lighter weight, and its general reliability, especially at a lower price point than the new MacBook Air. I actually have an extra one I just finished fixing up that I'm looking to sell. I'm just not very knowledgeable about how to sell it.

    Now, about your question:

    I could list all the specs, but that would be tedious, so I suggest you read them at apple's website:

    13 inch "early":

    15 inch "mid":

    The thirteen inch model number is 12,1.
    The fifteen inch model number is 11,4.

    The fifteen inch MacBook Pro has a 4-core processor, more storage and RAM at the base model, is generally "more powerful", and will probably cost you more to buy.

    The thirteen inch MacBook Pro has a 2-core processor that is a generation newer, has longer battery life, has slightly faster ram, and is lighter weight, and will probably cost a little less. Make sure you get enough storage.

    Both models have the fastest wifi in any MacBook Pro at the moment.

    I really like the visual proportions and weight of the thirteen inch model, buy I am biased. I got mine earlier this year (it is my first mac) and have loved it ever since.

    I hope this answer helps and was not too confusing. I am assuming you are not planning on doing any DIY upgrades.

    As far as i am aware (Using the Mactracker app), the 13" is only available in 2015 as an Early, and the 15" as a Mid, no other options.

    In my opinion, ANY 2015 MBP is worth having over ANY 2016-later MBP.

    But that's "my opinion only"...

    I don't know about the 13", but for the 15" there is only the mid 2015.
