Thanks. I ended up taking the non-touch bar MBP, and will look into the 21.5 Apple/LG display, or perhaps step up to a 27" iMac.

You want an SSD with more capacity than 1TB? That's the only reason I can think of at the moment for SSD upgradability in the 27. I'm still pissed the 21.5 can't be had with a 1TB SSD option.
