I’m debating between a new 2018 MacBook Air 16gb 256gb or 2015 15 inch mid-2015 2.2ghz i7 256gb Refurbished MacBook Pro from Apple. My primary uses for it would be light web browsing, emails, viewing and editing some photos (not heavy). I’d do 16gb of RAM either way. I currently have a 13 inch 2016 MacBook Pro which I hate for several reasons including the Touch Bar, the screen which gets dirty, the awful keyboard and horrible battery life. I’m leaning toward the MacBook Air for the longer battery life which is important to me, but I know the 2015 15 inch Pro is the gold standard and they’re built to last. I vastly prefer the keyboard on that. I’d buy AppleCare+ on either. Given my use case, which would you go for and why?
