    The price hike is frustrating, especially as it's likely to come back down for the second generation. That said, while the entry level machines are more expensive they aren't all more pricey spec for spec. For example, if you always planned on getting a 15 inch with discrete graphics, then the entry level price for a 15" with dGPU is basically the same as it always was, they just don't offer an iGPU version any more. Likewise with the base 13" machine: it has a 256GB SSD whereas the old entry started at 128, but if you upgraded the entry 2015 Mac to 256GB it was basically the same price as the 2016 one with similar storage.

    In other words, they didn't so much increase the prices as they dropped the base level machines.

    Probably not going to buy until tax season when I will have more cash.

    I am not planning to buy a touch bar, Touch ID laptop. The price is too high, I think I would like the 13" MacBook Pro baseline model for traveling. I am also waiting for an upgrade to a Mac Pro. I might have no choice but to create a hackintosh instead....

    I was planning to lay down the cash for one. I liked the smaller footprint, touchID, and I'm intrigued by the touch bar, however the price of entry is too steep for me. If it had been cheaper, I would have jumped at it. Now if someone gave me one, I'd take it. 🤗 otherwise, its wait until next year and see

    Probably...but not until my birthday in February. To be honest, I think I'll be completely ok with the entry level one.

    I think I agree. I need one, but the simple model seems good enough for me. I do have a little regret about being left behind!

    really good hardware, but might get the non touchbar 13 inch model, which is significantly cheaper, all the macbook pros are thinner than the macbook air.

    Keeping my 2014 MacBook Pro.

    I actually use the SD Card, HDMI and old USB ports. Don't want adapters and dongles.

    Love the MagSafe.

    Love the full-travel keyboard.

    Love the light-up logo, as trivial and silly as it may be

    If thin and light (and even more expensive) is the new priority of the "Pro" with all the compromises that brings, I don't see myself "upgrading" anytime soon.

    I must say, as enticing as the new MacBook is, the lose of the MagSafe and SD card slot is a big bummer. The MagSafe has saved my MacBook from dying plenty of times especially from my children who constantly trip over the power cord.

    Nice!!! On a side note, are y'all hiring???

    Since I have an early 2015 13" rMBP, I unfortunately will have to wait it out. Love the new updates though. Had my Air not have died on me and forced an early upgrade, I would've gladly gotten one of these new machines.

    I will be getting the 15" Space grey. I have the 2015 13" I run a virtual machine in unity, the 13" just does not run as smoothly as my last 2013 15" MacBook Pro, I and really looking forward to using a quad core cpu again and having loads of safari tabs open!

    I'll wait to see if I win one. Not sure about this touch track thing. Looks a little funky. Didn't realize this was something people needed, but I could be wrong.....

    Sometimes the need is simply created with the birth of a new feature... Nah, it's not needed at all

    Yes I will be buying a new MacBook Pro, 15". I will however wait until about the middle of next year for it though because my current MacBook Air is still sufficient for what I'm working on this year.

    I've been waiting for the new MacBook Pro 15 for a while. Now that its here, I do not see anything compelling enough for me to upgrade. I have a rMBP 15" late 2013 model and it will last for another year. The touch bar looks ok, but I use an Apple wireless keyboard most of the time. I don't see the wireless keyboard with a touch bar!

    I have a 2010 15" macbook pro. I skipped the retina version because my computer was still fine.
    the 2016 brought a lot of the things I wanted, individually lit keys, metal hinge, a darker color and the 15 inch weight is down to just 4lbs (mine is currently 5.6lbs!!) thinner bezels and usb c/thunderbolt 3.
    I am waiting for reviews for finalize the build I want but I am currently looking at a base 15 inch with 512gb and radeon pro 460 which comes to 2609 before tax with the student discount.
