Are all the '17 portables (MBP/MB) junk?
Are the '17s bad machines to buy?
Still rocking a rock solid mid-2010 15" MBP but I'm just tired of it, I just want a new machine, and am looking at everything from a higher spec'd 12" Macbook to a dedicated GPU 15" MBP. I don't have any particular needs, but since I only buy a machine every 7-8 years, I just buy what I want, not what I necessarily need. I typically buy a top spec machine for maximum longevity.
But I'm seeing complaints about the dGPU not working, and keyboards being junk on all models (both MBP and MB).
Touchbar, could take it or leave it I guess. Not sure how useful it really is.
Are the '17 machines going to go down in history as a big "miss" for Apple? I know they've been a sales success, but it seems there may be reasons worthy of holding off for the '18 models. I'm in no hurry.
