Ok, for most this might be moot…but here it goes:
- You need to buy it with all the RAM you will ever think you will need because you can’t upgrade after.
- You need to buy it with the maximum storage you need, that is, it should be greater than what you are replacing it with.
- No more magsafe power connector. It can be any Tbolt-3 port. On the 15″ model, there are 4.
And now, the biggest cost … I built a 1TB, loaded 15″ Touch model. It costs $3499. And that is without Applecare. Oh, must…have…Applecare if you are a “me firsty”.
Hey, with the 15″ MBPTB, it can have 512GB, 1TB or even 2TB of storage! Ouch, that 2TB is $1200 option over the 512GB. 4GB of VideoRam is $100 more (you will need that to drive a 5K LG display…ooooooi!) Maximum SSD storage on the 13″ model is 1TB.
USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 as they call it is rather interesting. The speed, video, adaptors… more to come!
