Today I was offered a new, 2016 Macbook Pro 15" as a birthday gift (in a couple of weeks), but I passed due to all the negative criticism I've heard about it; in turn, I was told I could get it as a gift the following year. So I'm wondering what we could expect from a 2017 MBP. Would it have any big processor changes? Maybe fixed battery life issues? Maybe just being a safer build in general being a second generation of the re-design? I currently own an early 2011 MBP with 8GB, HDD, AMD Radeon 6490M, my work related usage is for architecture (AutoCAD, Photoshop, 3D modeling programs, etc.), and I don't use any of the connectivity slots other than the USB ports either to connect hard drives or a mouse. I feel like even if I just upgraded to the new 2016 model, it'd be a huge and worthy upgrade (retina screen, 16GB ram, better graphics card, far better hardware design, etc.). But maybe I should wait for the 2017 model and see if it fixes all the problems people have experienced with this first generation?
