sorry might confuse .. It's apple touch ID .. It's started on IPHONE 5S.
The diff with latest iphone SE,iphone 6,6s,7 are they included something security call Secure Enclave. and NFC so you can pay via phone or apple watch or macbook pro

For some, Touch ID itself could be a big enough reason to go for the new MBP. Well at least it is one step closer to Windows Hello for logging in.

It's not that the spec is not good, but ur friend gave u not much of a discount for a second hand item. It's not much different to someone selling in garage sale section.

how old is the machine? I'll be blunt here, if you can't afford the extra 1k, then 4k is over budget for u as well. no offence.

I having the 4 ports, but only using 2 ports biggrin.gif Because you don't only buy an adapter for one port/function.
For example, you will buy the port adapter that consist of VGA + USB -C to USB.

Received my 13" with Touch Bar today. Gen-2 butterfly keyboard is noticeably better than the gen-1 on the 12". Speakers are very similar to the 12" too, in a good way.

Did some light gaming on Overwatch (via Bootcamp) and Diablo 3, quite impressed with the integrated GPU smile.gif

2 ports I think it's enough for now. however, the major advantage is charging port can be use either left or right. great covenience.

Check condition. If only minor scratches, no dings then it is worth it..

Only found silver in MY, so I bought this grey colour from SG...

Colour doesn't match 100%, but at least cable is braided. No drivers needed, plug and play just like Apple's multiport adapter.

Currently using the Unitek USB C dongle, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB 3.0 port, HDMI and USB C power pass through. Works quite well and hasn't failed me yet. My colleague who bought another brand from Lazada kaput after a month. Still charges through the power but the HDMI output failed.
