    So I'm wondering if the new macbook will be enough for me? I am planning on getting the 1.3 256 Gb version. I currently have a 2014 Macbook air i7 1.7.

    I am a 3rd year Finance student, and I mostly use my Macbook Air for Netflix, Youtube, Internet browsing in general. However as a Finance student I do use Excel but nothing majorly heavy with Excel. I do plan on doing some regression analysis in the near future, but nothing "heavy".

    Do you think I will notice any performance issues?

    I know its a "downgrade" but damn.... My narcism is getting the better of me in this decision.

    Based on your intended usage, it will probably be more than enough to meet your needs.

    see it when it's available. how it feels to use will tell you a lot. but in terms of your needs, seems it would do just fine...

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. Would I be able to connect it to a bigger monitor and still conduct my daily usages?

    you can get the adapter (support usb, power, and hdmi) and do what you need (there's a vga adapter instead of the hdmi one as well).

    Thank you :). It is pricey in general, but I live close to Oregon (tax-free state) and I am a student so avoiding tax and receiving a lousy 50 dollar student discount the expensive macbook price is a little less expensive.

    Your 2014 i7 will be perfectly capable of doing what you described and a bit more for several years more. I don't see a reason why you ought to upgrade - unless you have some cash burning a hole in your pocket!
