I hate Apple.

Shame about it having knack-all internal storage. I know it's out of fashion, but I'd be wanting 2TB for that money. 😞 (reluctantly 🔥)

I hate apple as the next guy, but it's a good deal for people who enjoy paying for brands. Although please don't vote cold because it's apple

Before anyone goes for a newer MBP please google issues relating the butterfly keyboard mechanism and thermal design.

Macrumours is also a good research resource.

It's put me off upgrading my 2015 MBP I got last year.

Are those issues not only related to the 2016 models?

Apple has really lost the plot when it comes to macs. A few years ago they were at the forefront of innovation when they brought out the air (slimmest laptop design at the time), iMac (first decent all in one chassis) and MBP was great for performance. They were expensive but not outrageously priced like today. Now the battery life has actually gone down, the keyboard mechanism is awful, only USB-C ports at a time when USB-A and SD is still in high usage and £50 for each dongle from apple. The irony is you can’t even charge an iPhone on a Mac without buying a dongle first! The touch bar is a useless peripheral that has little 3rd party support and drains battery life. Microsoft did a much better job with the touchscreen on the surface laptop. And they have inexplicably increased the prices by hundreds of pounds. I’m still using my air from 2013 because there’s just no compelling reason to upgrade.

Quite so. In the end I picked up an upgradable run out 'late 2012' model. The apple refurb store is my supplier of choice.

We all hate Apple but keep giving them money because the alternatives suck with their hourly "restart to update" crap.
