i'm aiming 13' non-touch bar version but unfortunately processor upgrade doesnt apply to this model.
13' touch bar version start with 7500, with only 4 core and 8gig ram(2133)

if i upgrade the ram to 16gig + i7 cpu, the price is RM9500, compare to 15'+i7+16+radeon whic only RM9800
why apple? i dun want 15' le

yup, 13" is more expensive. if form factor is not the consideration, go for 15" more worth it. in fact, 15" screen is really nicer for work etc.

So I configure the Mac I wanted and it's RM 14k+

15" i9
32GB RAM
SSD I put 256GB since I store files in the cloud these days

Shipping around 4-6 weeks. Really wanted to bite the bullet but a bit worried on the keyboard reports.

I believe it depends on what you do, if you are into heavy content creation or productivity, 6 core is best

Me personally the 4 core is good enough just for normal workload and casual use

Having 6 core is too much for me

no it is butterfly gen 3 keyboard, it supposed to fix the problems in the earlier gens.

Yes but from your linked post, it doesn't say it solves the dust and debris issue(dust easily getting into keyboard holes and making them faulty).

That's what the MBP 2017 users are complaning about,

but once i once configure 13' to 16GB ram, the price go up to ~8.3k,
vs 9.9k for 15' version

the price diff 1.5k will get

i5 vs i7
16gb 2133 ddr3 vs 16GB 2400 ddr4
13inch vs 15 inch
intel GPU vs Ati Radion GPU

worth it?

SGD2980 with free Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones (worth SGD398).

I sold the free beats solo3 wireless on-ear headphones at SGD200. So my net spent on my macbook pro 2017 13-inch touchbar 512GB 16GB RAM is SGD2780.

unlikely they will. since MBP no price changed, i dun think they will lower down the price for the base MBP without touchbar.

and seriously i dun see that apple will really release something that is lower in price.

wait for review from youtubers which it will come soon. but i am sure apple should have fixed it. apple has new recall programme to fix the 2016/2017 affected macbook pro.

given the apple's style, i dun see that they will ignore this problem while they are coming out new gen of keyboard and again need to recall problematic products again especially for known problems. likely that they have fixed it.

if need 16GB ram, i think directly go for 15inch better since it has it default.

if u are not really running VM, actually 8GB is good enough. but of course if budget is not a concern, good to have more RAM for future proof.

personally, if i can choose again, i may upgrade my 2017 MBP 13 TB from i5 to i7 instead of upgrading to 16GB ram. tongue.gif
