7 Reasons to Buy the 2018 MacBook Pro & 4 Reasons Not To



Buy an Older MacBook Pro Instead

Buy an Older MacBook Pro Instead

One of the best alternatives to buying the 2018 MacBook Pro is to buy an older model at a cheaper price, or to buy a fully spec'd 2015 MacBook Pro

If you need a lot of ports and you want a keyboard that doesn't feel like typing on a tough surface -- this is the best option for you. An author friend just traded his 13-inch MacBook Pro (2017) for a top of the line 2015 MacBook Pro to get a better keyboard and all the ports he needs. 

For other users, it may make more sense to buy a refurbished MacBook Pro from 2016 or 2017 that gives you enough power, and access to all the same MacBook Pro accessories

For a good number of users, this is going to be a better option than buying the new MacBook Pro.

    “Not everyone needs the best processor or 32GB of RAM, but even if you opt for a base or mid-line 2018 MacBook Pro, it’s going to last you longer and serve you better than buying an older model if you keep your notebook until it cannot do the work you need anymore.”

    Can you update the SSD on a post-2015 MacBook? Are you sure your keyboard will still even work in two more years? I’d say the post-2015 models have been the most un-upgradable, un-serviceable, and (because of keyboard issues) least reliable Macs in over 15 years. Would not recommend until Apple gets its head out of its ass and starts making top-tier laptops for professionals again.
