I am now looking back on almost a year w my 2017 MBP 15” and am mostly happy. Keyboard is a bit loud but I am now used to it and no key issues so far but I am still considering Applecare just in case.
Touchbar I actually find very useful.! I have been filling out a lot of forms since I am looking for a new job and the TB actually saves me a lot of time!
I still wonder at times if the 13” would have been better due to portability and seat space on planes etc.
But the reports on the battery life for the 13” seems less than stellar, I get around 7 hours in real world use on my 15” so I think that easily beats the 13”. Is this correct?

Overall I really like my MBP 15”!
