    I'm looking to get one of the refurbished 2016 MacBook Pros and would like some advice on which one I should get.

    This will be used for a photography business. So it needs to be able to handle photo editing with Lightroom.

    I'm looking at:

    https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...core-Intel-Core-i7-with-Retina-display-Silver

    https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...-Intel-Core-i7-with-Retina-display-Space-Gray

    https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...-Intel-Core-i7-with-Retina-display-Space-Gray

    (I originally posted this in the MacBook Pro forum. Didn't realize there was a specific forum for purchasing advice. Sorry about that.)

    Thanks!

    The CPU difference on those is not enough that you will ever notice in Lightroom. The memory is all the same, so that just leaves drive size as the difference. So I would just whichever one has the storage capacity you need.

    Seconded. Though I'm a sucker for Space Gray :)

    If you are a pro photographer, get the biggest drive you can.
