I have an order in place for 2016 13 inch MacBook Pro with touch bar (3.1GHz i5, 16GB RAM, 512GB) currently, which is not being delivered until mid December. After looking at the Apple store refurbished section, I just placed an order for 2015 13 inch MacBook Pro (3.1GHz i7, 16GB, 512GB). This saves me about $420. I'm coming from 2007 white MacBook, so I know I will be impressed with either one, but as you can see, I tend to use my laptop until it almost dies. I've been using my work PC laptop to tie me over until I get the new one. I've been waiting to get new MacBook Pro for awhile, but other than 2016 being lighter and thinner, and maybe slightly faster than 2015, I am not completely sold on it and I don't even mind the noisy keyboard or multiple dongles. I should be able to use 2015 one for at least 3 years without it being outdated, right? I use my laptop mostly for office work and for entertainment (web browsing, downloading and watching videos, Photoshop, playing music, etc.). I do travel a lot, so light weight and long battery life are important.
