I mostly use my laptop plugged into home monitor, keyboard, and mouse. And MBP seems less and less geared toward someone in my situation - i.e. no access to touch ID, Apple Pay, TouchBar, plus wasted expense of retina screen. I unfortunately can't downgrade to a cheaper laptop, as I definitely need full 15" when I do leave home. Only compromise I could imagine would be to have MBP perpetually opened and used as a second screen (leaving easier access to the new goodies, plus put that screen to some use). But that's weak. How are other people in my boat deciding what to buy?
