So, I'm buying a new MacBook. Question is, which one?

    That's my dilemma at the moment; going for a cheaper 2015 MacBook version, which can do the job, or buying the newer MacBook Pro version, future proof.

    Talking about future proof, I'm afraid upcoming MacBook versions will have more functionalities for the Touch Bar. However, at the moment, I can relate with you when it come to it.

    Using Windows OS itself is out of question, for professional reasons; most of the software I'm using only works on MacOS, like Sketch, Framer, or Principle.

      Yeah i feel. for me the touchbar functionality its a big deal, but I think going future-proof (if you can even call it that with mac) is the best way to go. I buy a new laptop every 4 years or so, and this one should last me until then. thats what I would do!

      The touchbar is a gimmick. It's never going to give you any competitive edge over those who don't have it. It's only useful if you're typing on your computer, so if you plug it in to an external monitor, or use an external keyboard it's completely useless.
