The 2018 model shouldn't be called an upgrade in any way.

I much prefer the touchpad. It's so nice being able to click the top part easily.

The 2015 Macbook Pro has the Force Touch trackpad as well (so no physical movement), so it has the exact same feel when you click at the top of the trackpad. Everything before the 2015 did have that issue though, you're correct. Never really bothered me though to be honest. The nicest part of the FT trackpad if you ask me is the ability to make trackpad clicks almost silent, and the fact that it's (supposedly) less likely to break.

Turn off haptics and use tap to click. Once you go tap you'll never go back?

It's faster…

Not in a way that I could perceive at work. I guess both the 2015 and 2018 are "plenty fast" for the web development work that I do.
