At this moment I have a 13 inch 2017 base model (2,3 dual core i5) with 16gb and 1 TB. I love this laptop. However it's just a bit to small for me. I almost only use the laptop hooked up to a 27 inch 4k screen. while I love to do that I am under the impression that a 15 inch will be enough for me more then 50% of the time. I also looked at the Mac mini 2018 but I think a 15 inch MacBook Pro would better fit my situation. So I decided to switch to a 15 inch MacBook Pro. Now I have 2 options: - 2018 15 inch MacBook Pro Base model (2,2 Ghz six core i7, 16 gb, 256 SSD, Radion 550x) - 2017 15 inch MacBook Pro (3,1 Ghz quad core i7, 16 gb, 256 SSD, Radeon 560) I can get both new for exactly the same price. Normally I would instantly go for the newest model. But the problems I read about the 2018 model made me doubt. Of course the 2018 model has the better processor. Biggest difference in the multicore of course. I mainly use the machine for web development and I am starting with Xcode. If I use a virtual machine it will be limited to just one. I think both will be sufficient. But I can't make up my mind. Should I just ignore the problems with the 2018 model and T2 chip? Are the problems less frequent then it looks? Or go save(r) with the 2017 version and take the gen2 keyboard instead of the gen 3? Any other things I am missing? Thanks!
