I recently replaced my 2015 MBP 15" ( 2.2Ghz i7 16GB RAM ) with a 2015 MBP 13" ( 2.5Ghz i5 8GB RAM ) for portable computing. The MBP 15" previous did Mobile and "home" computer. My 2014 Mac Mini ( 2.6GHz i5 8GB RAM 500GB fusion drive ) computer runs as a media/web/etc server. For mobile computing , I'm going to use my MBP 13" going forward. For desktop/home computing, my long term plan is to get a 27" iMac i7, but I need to decide what to do with the MBP 15" and Mac Mini that it would replace. I see my options are 1. Sell the Mac Mini and use the 15" MBP as the desktop computer . Pro: The MBP is powerful enough to do all tasks. Con: the Mac Mini won't get me as much money towards my iMac purchase. 2. Sell the 15" MBP and use the Mac Mini as the desktop computer . Pro: More money for the iMac purchase. Con: the Mac Mini is not as powerful. 3. Order an iMac now, set it up, and then sell the other computers. Pro: get the iMac faster. Con: Dip into savings for funds and then backfill savings after the other computers sell. 4. Keep the MBP as workstation , sell the Mini, don't get an iMac. Pro: Lowest cost. Con: Clunky setup with external monitor and peripherals. Thoughts? Money isn't an issue, I can do 1-3 now, though I prefer to sell items before buying new ones so I'm not stuck with extra computers lying around the house.
