    It all comes down to what everyone does however overall, power is power and there seems to be some miss-pricing in Apple.

    If you had the choice of:

    -15'' MBP 2015 model ( This is sold as new in Apple although 2 year model already with Hashwell - bare in mind new disclaimer of apple for high sierra is 6th gen onwards)
    - 13'' 2016 skylake 16 GB ram @ 2.0
    - 13'' 2017 Kaby 16GB ram @ 2.3

    Two bottom ones can work fine with 8+10 bit 4K when the 1st is a bit too old. If you were doing some video editing (including 4k GOPRO video + H 264) which one would you go for? Someone would say kaby cause its the newest however the 15'' MBP seems very solid! I just want to hear some arguments. thanks!

    How big of a factor is pricing?
    Is a refurbished 2015 with the 2.5/16/512/dGPU an option?
    Is a 2017 15-inch an option?
