Apple released a 2017 version of the MBP Touchbar in late 2016. It's now 2017 and no one likes to refer to their 4 month old laptop as last years 2016 Model. Besides Apple needs to give these buyers value. Apple will likely not release any Updated MBP Touch Bar until very late in 2017 and call it the 2018 Version. Car companies do this all the time. You can always buy a 2017 model year car in late 2016. And Apple is adopting this strategy. The 2016 MBP Touch Bar has been a disaster. In so many way. - can you Stream 4K HDR movies No - do we get modern DDR4 RAM No - can it decode 10-bit HEVC No (only 7th Generation Intel chips can) - basic functionality requires $50+ in extra Dongles I just feel bad for everyone who was Duped into buying a 2013 featured Laptop at 2016 prices.
