    Hi everyone, I'm new to the community.

    I'm willing to purchase a Macbook Pro. I have sorted out two options below considering the budget,

    Option 1:

    Macbook Pro 2015 - 15 inch

    2.2GHz Quad Core Core i7(4770HQ) Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz

    16GB 1600MHz memory

    Iris Pro Graphics 5200

    Option 2:

    Macbook Pro 2016 TouchBar- 13 inch

    2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor(6267U) Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz

    16GB 2133MHz memory

    Iris 550 Graphics

    Made my decision to go for Option 1 but almost for the same price range I see thatOption 2 also available. However I don't like to go for a smaller 13-inch screen.

    Considering I will be using this machine for at least 4 years from now I just want to know whether by preferring the Option 1 am I going for an old machine as the hardware is from 2013. My work involves video editing, After effects, Photoshop, Heavy Web Browsing and I don't do much gaming if that matters.

    CPU architecture didn't improve much during the last years.
    The newer dual core has about 60% of the multicore performance of the older quad core.
    Photo and video editing are both scaling well with multiple cores so it's basically directly translating into real world performance.

    Option 1 for sure... especially for video editing and other CPU-intensive stuff.

    PassMark benchmarks the processors as follows:

    i7-4770HQ - 8918
    i5-6267U - 4918

    The quad-core i7 is the clear winner!

    It all depends on what you are wanting to do with your new computer.

    The quad-core will always beat the dual-core (within reason) for processing power.

    I prefer the larger screen and the greater amount of power that a quad-core provides and it would be my choice 99/100 times.
