I got a decent deal on a factory refurbished mid-2015 top-of-line 15" MBP, so I now have money ready for that Canon 24mm tilt shift lens, also refurbished ...
Those giant 17" MBPs were nice.
Nothing about these new MBPs appeals to me at this point. Seems like a box of gimmicks with real world application completely neglected.Consumer Reports
My 2010 MBP got sufficiently warm to induce sweat when used on the lap, and fan was on 100% of time. I use one of those plastic laptop stands with a built-in fan powered by USB.
