For all of you kicking the non authorized service guys for not going legit, being a authorized service provider I specifically remember my rep. referring to an EXISTING authorized service provider wanting to open another service center. The service reps exact words were referring to WIlly Wonka, "why should we give him the golden ticket for another service location". And this was an existing authorized owner in the top 10% of the nation. I think theres more to it than just wanting it. You must have an "in" at the top. The Apple promoters here just shouting in favor of Apple need to admit they are plants or get educated.
After waiting for the new models, I felt the best bet was backwards to a high end 2015 15in. First you can still get a bigger SSD if I run out on the 500 (thanks OWC). Second if I have an out of warranty repair I wont have to have the top case, touch bar, battery, trackpad, logic board with ssd, and ram all replaced for bad ram. I wont have to have the logic board, ram, ssd, touch bar, battery, all replaced for broken keyboard membrane or depleted battery. I wont have to have the logic board, ram, top case, touch bar, all replaced for bad storage. So much salvage of working parts for simple repairs bothers me. I dont care about 10mm, 12mm, 17mm etc. I only use it from the top. And for the $1300 I paid for a old stock 2015 with 16/500/AMD I feel I get more value for spending exactly half the base price model cost. And its already built and in the channel so I feel better about one less piece of hardware out there because of me.

I've seen it so many times and I have 8 adapters for my current stuff and have to go buy 6 more for USB-C. Losing a floppy is brave, making stuff where your two current products MBP an iPhone dont plug together with the out of the box items is just weird.

I've already mentioned it but as a pro software developer I certainly don't need those ports on my portable. My portable needs a good keyboard, a good screen, faster storage, and wifi. Tho this design is perfect for my use case, and putting in all those ports, with the sacrifices and tradeoffs any hardware design incurs, would be unfavorable.
