While new MacBook Pros with faster specs and a Touch Bar launched earlier today, Apple continues to sell base model 2015 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros on its website for the same entry-level prices of $1,299 and $1,999 respectively. Higher-end models with faster specs and more storage are no longer available for purchase.

2015 MacBook Pros should remain a popular option among customers who prefer having access to a broader range of ports, such as MagSafe, two USB-A ports, two Thunderbolt ports, HDMI, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and an SD card reader.

The new MacBook Pros have four Thunderbolt 3 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack only. Thunderbolt 3 carries power, USB, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA video out over a single port. As with the 12-inch MacBook, customers will have to purchase standalone dongles to connect certain devices and accessories.

2015 MacBook Pros, of course, have traditional function keys rather than Apple's new Touch Bar that provides contextual controls based on the app you are working in or system task you are carrying out.

I wish people would just be reasonable and stop buying Apple for a while. They have clearly lost their mind and need a reality check. At this point its almost offensive how full they are of themselves

Other manufacturers usually discontinue their old models or at the very least lower the prices. The greed at Apple is beginning to stifle it and its customers.
