    Default MacBook Pro 2017

    Hi there. Hope you are doing good

    I’m aware that the 2016 MacBooks are an epic failure at least with the battery life. So bought the 2015 MacBook Pro 15inch instead. Just heard that 2017 Macs will be out soon with new gen. Processor .

    I got the 2015 15inch (512 SSD) with Intel Iris Pro Graphics for $2178.

    Should I just return it now and wait for the 2017 one?
    By that time the 2015 model will be out of production and available officially and only the not so good 2016 will be available along with the 2017 ones which I assume will be damn costly considering the price of 2016 models now.

    Is it worth waiting for it expecting it to be good in all departments like the 2015 model incase I can max out my wallet to afford it?

    Not sure if anyone can answer this question for you. If the one you purchased does what you need it to do and you're happy with it then keep it. If you can afford the latest and greatest and you're willing to wait then I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Do what is best for you. Nobody can make that decision for you.

    Firstly, Welcome to iMore NatalieThomas89!

    @Quis89 has some good advice. If you are happy with the 2015 model and it does everything you need it to, then keep it. it's got a 99.5 Wh battery so you will never get any bigger than that. (legally) Additionally its got all the ports you need and you don't need to spend extra on adapters. Which could run you near $100 depending on what you need.

    If having the latest and greatest matters to you then wait. Otherwise, keep your 15" and enjoy it for the next 5 years

    Well if Apple releases a next Gen in 2017 (which I doubt) then just sell your old one eBay, fairly new MacBooks sell very quickly on there. BTW battery life on my 2016 MBP seems fine to me.
