Good day all, I am currently shopping for a new Mac. Here’s my desired specs; 15” 2018 560X i9/32GB/1TB - cost SGD55xx As the wife lately seeing me doing lots of upgrade on my gear, gotten the XR and Series 4 all together, she questioned the need of such expensive machine. I choose to look into other options; 13” 2018 2.7GHZ i7/16GB/1TB - cost SGD41xx MBA 2018 16GB/1.5TB - cost SGD38xx My work involves a lot of coding and compilation, UI/UX Design with Sketch 3, photography work with Capture One Pro, development testing with VM (single instance), irregular 4K video editing. With the 15” I have no doubt that I can everything above without worrying the performance but with the 13” I feel a little insecure with the 16GB I have as my current machine is a Thinkpad with 32GB memory running Fedora 29, an upgrade from 13” maxed out rMBP. I have yet to read much on the 2018 MBA performance on development, Sketch 3 usage. 90% of the time the laptop will be plugged to either a 25” Ultrawide or 34” Ultrawide. With the 13” and MBA route, I can have extra cash at the later date to include a eGPU or getting a Mac Mini with custom installed 64GB memory for more intensive work. What are your thoughts? Would love to hear more feedback on my dilemma!
