    So I'm going to the store after work to pick up either one of these and I was just curious as to which you'd get. I notice there's a sale on the 2018 15". The specs would be the following

    2018 15" MBP

    i7 6-Core 2.4ghz
    16gb RAM
    256GB SSD
    AMD Radeon Pro 555X

    2019 13" MBP

    i5 2.4ghz
    8gb Ram
    512GB SSD
    Intel Iris 655

    I'll mostly be using it for simple things such as browsing the web, office and possibly use it in the future for coding bootcamp. Is the older model with the bigger screen, better ram and gpu worth it over the newer MBP? Are there many issues with the older MBP?

    Do you need the 2.4GHz for the 13 inch? Other than having 4 TB ports, it’s not worth IMO. I would spend the difference on additional RAM.

    I originally wanted to go for the 13" with 16gb ram, but that option is not available at best buy unfortunately.

    I’m a Best Buy first shopper myself, but I feel that for your needs, I would just order one from Apple and take advantage of the discounts with the free Beats.
