    Many pros out there are still using 2015 MacBook Pros because they can’t stand the butterfly switch keyboard Apple introduced with every model after that until they reversed course and went back to the scissor switch keyboard in the new 16” Pro. These aren’t phones. They’re designed to easily last at least four or five years and, quite honestly, technology isn’t moving fast enough to warrant an annual upgrade for 99.9% of users.
    That said, I’m using a late 2013 MacBook Pro and it’s still getting the job done. Eventually I’ll probably upgrade to a MacBook Air.

    Agreed....As for the butterfly keyboard, it has never been a hindrance to “me”. If I had to list a complaint about it, it would be the not so quite sound it emits while typing. Other than that, I’m okay with it.

    Go for it, but if your Windows machine is still fairly new, why not hold onto it? It can still. E useful to you.

    No, it is done.. it has all types of viruses it’s a 2010 laptop. It’s definitely time for an upgrade

    I had a 2015 MBA and that thing was awesome. I recently purchased a ‘19 MBA only because Best Buy had a Deal I couldn’t resist and I was able to flip my ‘15 MBA for $400 so it was a no brainer for me but if you rich and can afford to buy a new every year then why not.
