what's the difference between this and the newer mid-2017 Macbook Pro 13.3" with 128gb SSD? (other than the extra 128gb SSD and slightly "faster" processor"

Thanks!

The 2016 tb model was just recently 1275 with student coupon from bestbuy. For those that missed it should hold out for that deal

The Best Buy one has a newer and faster processor. It's a bit more expensive, assuming you get the 256 gb one, because of taxes. Taxes alone will be over $100. The 128 gb one will be around the same price as this one. I would personally buy the 2017 256 gb one even with the tax.

I think there BestBuy deal is better. They have external TB3 SSD for cheap or you can always update internal SSD later. I got mine for 1075 + tax, however I have a subscription to Office already.

This is fine for your average user but you'll probably get a couple extra years out of the 15" touch bar model that went front page. Better graphics, screen size, memory and processor. Still pretty portable imo (plus touch bar if you care about that). It's another $650 though so not for everyone.

I loathe the day I have to replace my late 2013 15" if I remember correctly it's retail new price with AppleCare coverage was something north of $3500. I bought it 3 months old with less than 10 cycles on the battery according to the internal meter and paid $2k on eBay. It was a risk buying used at the time but it more than paid for itself.

It's by far been the best all around computer I have ever owned regardless of brand. To this day it still never feels slow. I am listing after the new colors though.

I have a 2012 15 as my daily driver. It'll keep going. New battery/keyboard/track pad was $200 and a new charger was $70. Runs like new.

Good to know that's all it took for the battery. My usage is too sporadic to even know what the battery life is right now. Most of the time at home I go 3-4 days without charging but whenever I am actually taxing the system it's plugged into power. I think I am just finally off AppleCare now. Glass half full/empty is that I only ever used it to get a new power brick. Nothing else even remotely popped up.

As MacBooks have become slimmer and more integrated, fewer and fewer components are user-replaceable. The official line from Apple is the RAM and internal SSD are not upgradeable. Unofficially, it seems the non-touch-bar 13.3" MacBook Pro does technically have a removable/replaceable SSD module. However, it's not a standard SSD to say the least (I do not see any indication that a replacement exists, but please correct me if I'm wrong) and the process would most likely void the warranty.

If you don't mind using external storage, Thunderbolt drives are becoming common. Otherwise, you're probably better off to order with the internal storage you expect to need.

Even as an Apple user, I find the direction toward more integration and soldered-on parts very user-unfriendly, especially since RAM/SSD upgrades at order time are charged at a premium ($200 to go from 128 to 256 GB??). But to their credit, their OEM SSDs are blazing fast and not having to support everything off the shelf probably allows them to optimize performance. That's not to say I believe for a second it's not mostly about profit, but there are upsides to the direction.

Why would you be bragging about macbook when you just replaced mouse, track and battery ? windows pc can also keep going when u do those replacement . Sound to me it's equal to a pc laptop.
K. I have a 2012 13" and I've replaced nothing on it. It's still perfect. Is that better?

Same here. My 2013 MacBook pro is as awesome as day 1. Battery is still 7 hours, down from 10 with daily heavy use.
