    Hey. I am considering which option would be reasonable between i5 2.9 and i5 3.1, for new macbook pro 2016 13inches.

    Ugrading to i5 3.1 costs 100 dollars.
    Is it worth and does it have big performance differences compare to i5 2.9.
    Please tell me your expertic opinions.

    By the way, Ram is already 16g.
    Color (not sure)

    You're not going to notice a difference.
    Save $100 and put it towards the dongles you need.

    You don't need dongles you may need to replace a cable or two for a few pounds on Amazon, but this dongle obsession is nonsense.
