I use a 13" 2017 MBP right now because I got it for a steal (1k) 2 years ago.

Now that there's been some insane improvements on AMD APUs, crossing my fingers for an XPS 13 or 15 refresh with AMD and I'm switching.

I think I value portability over raw horsepower,. If I need compute, I can always use a VM on AWS, it's cheaper, more power efficient and saves battery when I'm on the go.
