Even since I moved into my own condo a few weeks ago, I've been using tasks/reminders much more. Also, since I don't have a landline and use my iPhone, etc for phone calls and imessage & I imagine facetime will be more common as well as the holidays approaches. I bought a dell XPS 15 inch a couple of years back and I'm realizing it now that it was a mistake. Outlook is a pain in the a$$ to use with my iCloud account and nothing else works to sync my reminders, etc with my iPhone, etc. I tried every other way outside of outlook to sync reminders, etc between Windows 10 & IOS and nothing work; MS Todo always screws up my daily reminder times and I gave up. With that all said, I was looking at the refurbish MacBook Pro's; However, I'm always leery of buying refurbish items and prefer to buy now. Plus, I not a big fan of Laptops being shipped to me as I'm not a big fan of UPS. I was looking at the MacBook Pro TB 13" with 512GB SSD as I'd probably regret buying the 256gb in the future. But I have some questions: First is the video card, how good is it for some gaming if I stay at 1080p resolution. Second, am I being too paranoid with refurbish computers? is it the better way to go and save some money? or buying new is the preferred way to buy macbooks pro? Any other suggestions or preference of MacBook pro specs that I should go with will be welcome as well. Looking forward to going back to a MacBook pro.
