    So im going to return my 2016 15 inch for the 2015 model. The 2016 was great but i dont really care for the touchbar and i use bootcamp and an external display a lot so i don't like the unnecessary heat that came from the gpu. This is why im leaning toward the iris pro only. I also dont game on my laptop either.


    The main usage will be Ableton Live on the OSX side and FL studio while bootcamping. Both of which do not require a dgpu.


    Also, for anyone here with the 2015 15 inch. When its not using the dgpu, does the laptop ever get hot/noisy? What I like about the 2016 is that its pretty cool and quiet when on the igpu

    I think you're fine then without a dedicated ship, although I would tell you that the resale would be better/easier down the road with a dedicated card should you want to take that route.
