    I bought a used 2015 15" MBP for $1500 and it is perfect for my design and development needs.

    You're going to pay roughly double for the touchbar MBP. Plus you'll need to buy a handful of dongles. You can't get any more ram than previous versions (16gm) and the processors are the same.

    The new MBPs are beautiful & powerful laptops, but they're simply not worth the price tag.
