In anticipation of yesterday's event and wanting to go for a lighter option, I sold my 13" i7 3.1 GHz 1TB 16GB 2015 on eBay this past Sunday ($1725). I'm having trouble getting payment on the item which could be a blessing in disguise. Last night I ordered the 13" No Touch Bar/8GB/2.0Ghz i5/512SSD. I'll shed some thickness and about .5 pounds (space grey seems cool!). It just went into the "processing" status. I don't think I'm gaining anything speed wise and giving up 50% of my hard drive space. With the education pricing its pretty much an even swap as far as price. My finger is on that cancel button. Any thoughts?
