I’m torn over which Mac to buy. I only have a budget of around £ 1,000 – £ 1.5,000, but am willing to stretch to £ 2,000 if needed.
I currently have an early 13.3 “MacBook Pro 2015 with a 2.7 GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB RAM and 250 GB storage, and it works well for my needs, but was bought refurbished and starting to get slow.I’m pretty sure it also has battery issues as the fan often gets mental, so I’m afraid it can just die at any time which will be disastrous for my work.
As a developer, I absolutely love Macs and have recently launched a YouTube venture, so I’m looking for the optimal specifications for running apps like Premiere Pro and several other Adobe products. I̵
One problem I also have with my current machine is space. Although I store most of my files in Dropbox, I only have 13 GB of free storage. Every video I produce can consist of several gigabytes of data. I also run a lot of virtual machines etc.
These are the options I want to go with:
1.4 GHz quad-core processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.9 GHz 512 GB storage for £ 1499 and delivery between October 28 – November 4
2.0 GHz quad-core processor with Turbo Boost up to 3.8 GHz 512 GB storage for 1799 £ and delivery between 21 October – 28 October.
What will your recommendation be?
