The latest model without touch bar was the same price at BB recently. Is this model better than that? Or should I just wait for the latest model?

The touchbar is pretty much the selling point here. CPU wise, I think the 2016 and 2017 are roughly the same as they aren't yet into 8th gen.

Supposedly there is a new entry level macbook on the horizon though which is to replace the macbook air. I'd probably hold out for that unless you are in desperate need of a new computer.

The only thing is that if Apple reveal the new one it is probably going to take some time for that model to go on sale.

I hear you but if they make it entry level, it could have a <1000 pricetag with new specs so you wouldn't have to wait for a sale. I am just hypothesizing here but that is what internet rumors have lead me to believe. They are saying it could be released in Q2 of this year.

Thanks. I will wait. This should go down in price after that release... I'll pull trigger ~$1k. Just worried about keyboard issues with this model.

why isn't this getting more attention? Seems like a better deal than the best buy deal this week.

This is a great deal if you are in the market for a MacBook Pro. The best deal you will find on the 2017 model, which has very similar specs to this 2016 model, is when it is on sale for $1,599.00(tax free if you get B&H to price match, outside of NY & NJ)

I suggest waiting.

Non touch bar: 2016 vs. 2017: the cpu and gpu of 2017 is slightly better, just very slightly.

Touch bar vs. Non touch bar: Touch bar has 4 thunderbolt, 2 fans, slightly lower battery capacity; while non-touch bar has only 2thunderbolt, 1 fans, slightly higher battery capacity.

If battery life matters for you and you don't use touch bar a lot, then go for non touch bar, or use the same budget to get larger ram/ssd. Or make your trade-off according to your needs.

Because it's the 2016 model. Not discounted enough to buy it over the 2017 model.

I have seen quite a few negative comments about Touch Bar recently. One article said "useless," but it's certainly a personal preference.
