Hello everyone, I need your advice since I'll be getting a new MBP in June but I haven't made up my mind yet. I'm currently a student in communication (so I get a discount with Apple On Campus) and this summer I'll start an internship. This new computer will be my working tool for graphic design/illustration (heavy use of Photoshop and illustrator), Lightroom and a bit of occasional video editing on Final Cut/Premiere. I need a laptop that I can bring everywhere, that would fit in my backpack since i'll be traveling a lot next year. Something future-proof that could last me at least 5 years without getting old, that I could still use as a tool when I start working for real. I don't need that much storage since I have a 500GB external drive. I have been saving for a while so my budget would be between 1600€ and 1900 € (1800-2100 dollars). But obviously, who would mind saving some money ! Here are the selected models : From 2015 : 13" 3,1 Ghz Intel i7 dualcore, 16GB RAM and 256GB storage for 1839€ refurbished 15" 2,2 Ghz Intel i7 quadcore, 16GB RAM and 256GB storage for 1909€ refurbished (2024 with AOC) From 2016 : 13" 2,9 Ghz Intel i5 dualcore, 16GB RAM and 256GB storage for 1889€ refurbished (2014 with AOC) As you can see, the 2016 ones come with the Touch Bar since I don't see any reason to get the new model without the main new feature. I can't pick between 15" and 13" : the latter seems better for travelling but the former more powerful/more suited for graphic design. I have a 13 inches MBP from 2011 and the screen seems fine to me. My questions would be : Is there a significant difference in power between the 3 (for instance between the 3,1 i7 dual core and the 2,9 i5 dualcore from 2016) ? Which one would be more suited for my use and my budget ? Would you recommend my to drop the 16GB RAM ? I don't plan on buying it now, I'm waiting for the WWDC to see if they'll get more affordable. But I trust you wisdom Thanks !
