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

    I am currently owning Macbook Pro Late 2012 13" i5 128 GB SSD 8GB Ram. I bought machine couple of years ago, used. But it was in very good condition thus running smoothly. Currently I am looking for an upgrade and I was looking for either Mac or Hackintosh.

    Read a bunch of reviews and these are my main findings:

    • MB as always is great, but f-ing expensive. This speculated because of Touch Bar introduction which is relatively new technology, making it expensive.

    • Other alternatives which would be less expensive and even have better performance were: -- Del XPS 9560 Only old model of 9550 is available to Hackintosh. The Hackintosh for new model will be available only after quite some time. -- Razer Blade Really nicely priced model and has the same case as MacBook only Black and different logo. No Hackintosh is available for newest model, so this was a bummer.

    -Hackintosh. In general this is still a hack and will provide with the issues you stated before. So this has a downside.

    -New MacBook Pro 2017 15" 512SSD 16GB Radeon Beast of the machine, but what I've read performance if not the same as the two year old MacBook, could be even worse. Plus the price tag jumps from premium to insane category.

    • Macbook Pro 2015 15" 512SSD 16GB Radeon This is my choice currently. I am planning to buy a couple of years old MB and wait to see for the new version of MB. I keep my fingers crossed that the new prices for MB will drop at least a bit. As well I can keep open eyes for Hackintoshes for XPS and Razer.
