My 2015 15” quad i7 is still kicking ass daily. Everything I throw at it, it handles smoothly. I have no need for a touch bar or USB C and dongles. The battery still holds a fantastic charge. The keyboard keystroke is rock solid and deliberate. Not sure what else I really NEED. It has been the very best MacBook Pro I have ever owned.

I agree with you, spaceywilly. The mid 2015 Pro is outdated.
It may be outdated (it actually isn't) but at least at one point it was awesome. Something the current models of MBP will never be accused of being with their awful battery life, horrendous keyboard issues, lack of ports etc etc When the answer to a machine's problem is constantly "I just bought X to address that!" you've got a bad computer.

I miss ALL of these features. Great summary of why I haven't upgraded my MBP soon.
