I am considering investing in a refurbished 15.4 mbp. From what I have read the 2017 models have dust issues with the keyboard. Does the same hold true for the 2016 models? It seems the lightbar hasn't been well received in these models.

I don't know how severe the dust issues are in the 2016/2017 models, but I believe that they both use "butterfly" keyboard designs.

As far as the Touch Bar goes, I don't believe there are any real drawbacks except for the lack of a hardware ESC key. It's more an issue of whether it adds anything.

Thanks Tom, will do more research on the touch bar. Don't know where light bar came from! Star Wars maybe?
