Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar vs 13-inch MacBook Pro 2015

At its 'Hello Again' event, Apple didn't just unveil the powerful new 15-inch MacBook Pro with the OLED 'Touch Bar' and Touch ID. It also launched a smaller, 13-inch variant of the laptop. This particular model will start shipping in the US soon, but is yet to hit the shelves in India. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro runs the latest macOS Sierra and also features upgraded hardware as compared to its predecessor. Most importantly, it has an OLED 'Touch Bar' over the keyboard that serves as a secondary display. The Touch Bar can display anything from emojis to navigation buttons relative to the context of the application that is active on the screen. Love the design of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro but confused whether to go for it or its cheaper 2015 variant? Here's a detailed comparison between the two.
