Is it worth "downgrading" MacBook Pro?
- Rep Power
I have a 2018 MacBook Pro and I really don't like it. I find it frustrating in many ways, the lack of ports, the keyboard glitches, the touch bar, and I can't install Linux on it due to these "features" as well!
I'm looking to purchase the last model of 15" MacBook Pro before the design change, I'd get the most powerful one available, i7, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, R9 GPU (I believe?) to replace it.
Is this worth the potential downgrade in performance as it's a now an older machine, even though it has the same screen and better keyboard!
Thanks in advance,
MacBook Pro 13" Touch Bar (Mid 2018), Quad-Core i5, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD

Run Linux in a VM if you need it, running it as your primary OS is a waste of an expensive machine. If the 2018 machine isn't to your liking, by all means, sell it and purchase an older machine. I've never had an issue with my 2016, 2017, or 2019 MBP with keyboard issues and using a decent hub to have the connectivity I needed. The overall performance boost of the machine is worth it for me for what I do.--
