I would never buy an Macbook with a touchbar again. Thing is the worst.

Constantly hitting it accidentally. There's an app that will just disable for it.

Bit off topic, sorry...

While scrolling through SD, i found this thread about MacBook Pro MPXQ2LL/A for $899:

https://slickdeals.net/f/13022113-macbook-pro-for-900?v=1

It's a 2017 model so certainly NOT the newest and greatest and the deal went "Frontpage" in April . While the price from Best Buy is no longer working, it seems MicroCenter has it on sale right now:

Anyone care to comment whether 899 for this 2017 is still a good deal? If so, we should post it in a separate thread. For now, I am just not sure how solid this $899 "deal" is. Thanks!

This is a good deal. The 2019 and 2018 of this model is virtually the same. The 2018 is 2.3 ghz quad core vs 2.4 ghz quad core. The main differences between the 2018 and 2019 is more in the base model.

This is actually a pretty hot deal. I wouldn't go for 2017 as I believe that is dual core only. This quad would smoke that.

no 128gb ssd is annoying. It's also dual core instead of Quad core. I have a 2017 and the performance is terrible. A few more chrome tabs and the fan is spinning loud.

I just bought the same model for $1099 + tax on ebay from quickshipelectronics. 10% ebay bucks. The seller gave me the serial number and it came with AppleCare+. I bought a few items from this seller, usually came in sparking new condition.

Just don't get this generation of MacBook pros. Way to many issues with them

Plus the shitty keyboard and no regular ports. Apple doesnt care about its real users. They just care about the Isheep.
Eh... not completely true. The keyboard sucks and is super loud, but it has standard USB ports and a 3.5" headphone jack. Pretty much the same as my ThinkPad X1 Carbon Tablet in terms of ports.
