2015 or 2017 15" MacBook Pro

MacBook Pro - MacRumors Forums -
I had asked earlier about what MacBook Pro to get, the current ones that is. However, after exploring this section of the forum, I'm concerned about the issues the latest MacBook Pros are having whether it is the touch bar/battery problems, variety of keyboard problems, trackpad issues, etc. I am debating whether to get the 2015 15" MacBook Pro or the 2017 version. I just need persuasion or somebody to sell me on one of these. I'll make the final decision, personally, of course.

My uses aren't intensive unless 4K video/Photo work count. Mostly my uses are web browsing, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, Youtube/Netflix/Amazon Video, playing music (via bluetooth to speaker system) and possibly blogging. I currently have a mid-2010 15" MacBook Pro and have enjoyed it very much and it has aged well.

So, you can see I like the screen estate, the laptop will mostly move from couch to desk, so not much portability unless visiting family/friends. I can deal with the change in ports, use dongles but would miss mag safe but I'm assuming that's not a deal breaker. I played with a touch bar MacBook Pro in the store but with limited time, it didn't feel like much. TouchID seems like it would useful. Finances will not be an issue.

I can't really think of anything else so just ask away if I forgot any important factors.
