    Hello ! I hesitate to purchase my future MBP, I will use it for graphic design and web development. I am looking primarily performance and no gadgets such as touch bar. Between these two very similar price, which one is the fastest in your opinion:

    - 13 'no touch bar, i7 2.4, 16GB (1866), intel 540
    - 13 ', with touch bar (but I do not give a sh .. of that), i5 3.1, go 16 (2133), intel 550

    Thanks a lot for your help !

    no touch uses the 15w (used on MBA)

    with touch (no one has it yet) "maybe it will use the 28w"

    For graphic designing I think you're better off the with 15" version. More screen real estate, Quad Core i7, 16 GB RAM and a dedicated GPU.

    The initial investment is higher yes, but you're buying a machine that will last you 5 years at least. Divide that by 5 and the cost won't be that much.

    Yep you'll are better off with the touch bar due to much better graphics on the 28w CPU.
