Is the 2017 MBP a worthwhile upgrade over the late 2016?

My ageing 13"rMBP is starting to show its age (and particularly limit if 8GB of RAM) when it comes to photoshop, so I have started looking into replacements. I am pretty much sold on one of the new touch bar 15" MBPs (though the surface book does look pretty cool).

Is there much of a difference between the 2016 and 2017 versions of the touch bar MBP? This refurbished 2016 one looks pretty appealing for $3000 AUD https://www.apple.com/au/shop/product/G0SG1X/A/Refurbished-154-inch-Macbook-Pro-26GHz-quad-core-Intel-Core-i7-with-Retina-display-Space-Grey given that there is a saving of about $800 AUD between the 2016 and 2017 models.

Would the newer model be worth the extra $800 do you think?

Thanks in advance!
