    I'm looking to invest in a new MacBook Pro and find myself with 2 choices

    1) Mid-2015 15" MacBook Pro - 2.5GHz, 512gb SSD, 16gb RAM, M370X
    2) Late-2016 15" MacBook Pro - 2.6 GHz, 256gb SSD, 16gb RAM, Pro 450

    There's a $50 difference (latter being more expensive) and with all other things aside, am I losing anything in gpu performance if I go with the Pro 450 in terms of video editing? As I'm new to video editing myself, I won't be able to provide specifics on what I plan to do, but want to invest in a computer that has the most potential. I'm not familiar with benchmark testing myself, so if someone could explain the difference in performance I'd get from these 2, I would be very grateful.

    Go with the 450 unless you absolutely need the extra SSD. The new GPU is essentially the same performance but a LOT cooler and quieter.

    All benchmarks show that the new GPU is significantly faster.
