On some very reputable sites on the internet, I'm seeing some very affordable deals on refurbished MBP Retina i5 2.5GHz 8GB RAM. I'm trying to figure out if this will meet the needs of a college student (my son). His primary usage will be class work in Microsoft Office. However, he loves surfing YouTube and sometimes watches Netflix and other streaming services. He is a musician but the budget simply won't allow him to buy a multimedia computer to record and produce in a DAW. Nonetheless, on the rare occasion he would like use Logic Pro X to record and edit a song. He realizes 128 GB is not much he (actually me, lol) we will also buy an affordable external drive. Will this laptop meet his needs?
