Hello all, I know, I know... there are tons of threads both here and on the interwebs debating a 2015/2016 purchase. However, I figured I'd ask by adding a little bit of a twist. To give you an idea, I am a freelance wedding photographer and a full time digital marketer (email). After I graduated, I knew that I needed to move away from my 15in. Why? The size. I loved my 15in...it had fantastic performance, but it was so cumbersome to carry around. Now that my job requires some travel, and I've moved my laptop from my desk to my bag more often now... I decided to sell my 2014 before it lost more value. So, I'm left with a dilemma. Here are my options: Needs Manage photo library Cull (sort/organize) photo ingests edit photos (mainly weddings, 15-30gb folders of RAW images) print design (moderate level Illustrator + InDesign) mobility new large storage solution, filled my 1tb single drive.

I also had to go a little easier with the upgrades on the 2015 to compensate for the monitor. What are your thoughts? Do I go for the i7/16GB setup and take the jump to the USB-C trend, or maintain the 2015 flow and get a few gadgets to go along with it. Thanks!
