Unless you absolutely need mac OS this version of the mac pro is pretty terrible. Underpowered i5 and doesn't have the touch bar, booo.

Real shame too.

I don't care about the gimmicky touch bar. But an i5 chip for photo processing just doesn't work for me. I'm still using a 2013 iMac with i7 processor for my photos and it still gets the job done. But I'm not sure what my next computer will be. The Mac ecosystem has worked well for me over the past decade but I think the company has lost its way. Their new stuff is just too expensive for what you get and includes a lot of gee-whiz features I don't care about - at the expense of functionality. Yes, I know, the cool kids use them! And while I have an iPad, I can't see doing post production on it. I like some screen real estate for that, which is why I still have a desktop.

The company is trying to fix their folly with the underwhelming (and overpriced) MacBook Pro release this year:

Don't Buy a New MacBook. They're About to Get a Lot Better :: Tech :: News :: macbook pro :: Paste

It looks like the 32GB model is finally coming for pro users, with Intel Kaby Lake, and the price cuts on the 13-inch without touch bar are intended to help position this model as the replacement for the MacBook Air.

If you were wanting to upgrade your Air then this is probably the best deal you're going to get.
