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

    One thing to remember is that Apple trickles-out improvements and tends to save the most important update for last. The new MBP has a better screen and touchbar, now has Kaby Lake... but still only 16GB RAM. This means the next update may have 32GB RAM which is a game changer. Personally, I'd hold out and just get an older 15" MBP, something with an upgradable SSD.

    There's also big signs Apple has all but retired the Mac platform. Updates have slowed to nothing while the iPad "Pro" was center stage at the last WWDC. It's pretty obvious managers at Apple all use iPad Pros, so that's the itch getting scratched. Now that iPad has a file system, I wouldn't be surprised to hear something from Adobe in the next year or two about Creative Cloud for iPad.
