Any point buying a 2015 MacBook Pro "15?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I can get the May 2015 MacBook Pro with Retina Display with 512GB and 2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor which is worth £2,169.00 for only £1500 brand new. I was wondering if it is worth it or should I wait and get the new MacBook Pro which is speculated to be announced on June 2017 at the WWDC conference?

I would get the 2015 macbook pro.

Great battery life and it has a better keyboard IMO.

2015 Macbook Pro is pro in every way wheras the 2016 and beyond "pro" are jokes designed for idiot hipsters. Better keyboard, better power connector, better functionality without dongles. The only thing the new macbook pro offers is slightly better GPU performance but even the 460 PRO radeon that goes into the most high-end macbook is more or less equivalent to a 2-year old 960m.

Comparing older MacBook Pro with new one, the performance improvements are very negligible and minor. Although it has the newer generation CPU inside, the difference between benchmark scores of older and newer MBP is very less.

I think in June 2017, they won't be announcing a new MacBook Pro models. They are expected to launch new Mac Pro (replacing the trashcan) and update their MacBook Air lineup. May be!

As far as my knowledge is concerned its been less than a year that Apple launched the new MacBook Pro models so I don't think there would be new MacBook Pro launch in next WWDC.

So getting the older 2015 MacBook Pro is not at all a bad purchase. Get it.
