How does the MacBook handles Adobe CC?

    Right now I have a 2010 13-inch MacBook Pro and Creative Cloud apps (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat) are so painfully slow I want to throw my computer out of a window (not to mention the dozens of background processes that merely having CC installed on my computer seems to create).

    I was really considering a 12-inch MacBook since the most that I use my computer these days is to write, browse the web, manage PDFs and build and present keynote slides. However, I do have the occasional need to do some light design work and I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with Creative Cloud installed on a MacBook (and what model do you have).

    Thank you!

    MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2010) Intel Core 2 Duo
    Geekbench score
    P8800 - 2647
    P8600 - 2455

    Macbook (12-inch Early 2016) Intel Core-M
    Geekbench score
    m3-6y30 - 5086
    m5-6y54 - 5889
    m7-6y75 - 6807

    12" will be at least 2x faster.

    My girlfriend has the new MacBook m7, and she does some PhotoShop with raw images and quite a few layers. Absolutely no slow down whatsoever. This little beauty is VERY snappy!

    tbh 2x faster isn't fast enough… this is really slow with CC! :/

    That's great to hear! Do you know if she has Creative Cloud running?

    I have the standard m3 and it works great with Photoshop.

    I occasionally run CC InDesign and Illustrator on my 2015 rMB and it handles both quite well.

    That is measuring raw cpu power. Your old mbp is likely bogged down by other stuff you've installed over years and worse if you're still using spinning disk drive.
