Hello everyone, my first post here I’ve tried to find a solution by scouring different forums with no luck, primarily because the focus mostly tends to be around creative workflows, which is why I’m seeking help here. My issue is the following: I currently own a 2016 MBP with an i7 (6th Gen 2.7ghz), 16GB of ram, and a 512GB SSD. This setup doesn’t seem to be supporting my workflow sufficiently and I often get a lagging computer and in some cases get the two most critical apps I use freezing/crashing: Microsoft Excel and a Java-based Stock Trading Application (Interactive Brokers). My typical workflow includes heavy Excel file (with heavy files and regular and iterative computations), the above mentioned Java trading platform, safari with 10–30 tabs, other MS Office apps (outlook, word, OneNote), and Windows 10 running in Parallels (sometimes). I’m currently considering upgrading to the new 2019 MBP with 32GB of ram but I’m not sure whether an i9 will help with the above workflow or if I should just stick with an i7 (it seems from initial reviews that 2019 i9 MBP is somewhat better with thermals?). Cost of i9 vs i7 is not a factor for now. I’d really like to stick with a Mac however, if consensus says Windows is significantly better for my workflow then I would also consider sacrificing my Mac in favour of efficiency Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
