Hey. I have used a 2011 MacBook Pro 15' inch for 6 years. The GPU has finally done whatever it's been doing to kill the 2011 MacBook Pros. (sidenote: if anyone knows how to fix it without the hardware repair, I'd love to hear it.) I edit video and still images. I've just been to the Mac store to view what they have available and I am conflicted. I am looking for your opinions on the 2017 MacBook Pro 15' vs. the older 15' model. I hate the lack of USB ports. I am attached to the built-in SD card reader, which the 2017 does not have. I could take or leave the touchbar. THE RECESSED KEYBOARD SEEMS ANNOYING. I don't know if I'm just attached to what I've used for so long... does the 2017 perform much better than the older model? Is the touchbar more useful than I think? Are the graphics amazing? Do you get used to the recessed keyboard? Thanks Courtney EDIT: For anyone coming across this thread later... I bought a Dell XPS 15' w. NVIDIA 1050 & touchscreen and I effing love it. It's been a month and as someone mentioned, there are some issues characteristic to the XPS. However, I've found that they are heavily discussed online and fixable in a variety of ways. I feel like I'm able to customize my experience much better, and I'm loving Adobe Premiere Pro over Final Cut. The touchscreen is rad; I use it all the time. It is super light and powerful. The infinity-display is still satisfying a month later; I love the carbon fiber body. I like that I can easily adjust hardware if I need. The only thing I had trouble adjusting to was the touchpad. Even though the XPS 15' touchpad is quite good, it's nowhere near as polished as Apple Macbook Pros'. It's a little jarring at first, but you get used to it. So, if you've landed here after googling "Video Editing - Macbook Pro?" Or some other variation of that question, and are vaguely considering the switch to a non-Mac computer, my experience has been quite positive.
