    I notice that the MacBook Pro 13" 2016 have either 15W or 28W CPUs (TDP).

    If the CPUs have similar performance, does it mean the 15W CPU is more energy efficient or that the 28W CPU can work longer at full performance (before throttle down)?

    what are you using it for.

    Also you do know the SSD is welded to the logic board so can not be upgraded in the future (as per RAM)

    What does the SSD have to do in this conversation. I'm not being a jerk, but I'm wondering if I missed something. Regarding the SSD, however, I thought that the tear down of the MBP 13" non-TB had a removable SSD, didn't it?
