Just got the Macbook Pro 2016 with touch bar 15’ edition, setting it up takes my one full day. If the China network condition is good, I believe it will take much less time.
I decide the Macbook Pro from scratch instead of using migration assist because I want to keep the system clean. I will install as much application as possible from App Store, then the Homebrew, if both software repository can not find it, install it manually.
Apple store installation is the easiest one, once you log in and you will get all the application you have purchased.
brew are also relative easier, I even using brew to install Chrome and Firefox, via
brew cask install google-chrome.

It will finally take 76Gb after installing all my needs, about 33% used, so I believe in buying a 256Gb SSD edition of rMBP should be enough for my next four years usage.
