    will it be powerful enough for serious music production over the 15 inch? Hoping it lasts me 4/5 years, I'll be using logic protools etc

    I was using an Asus with I7 5500u with 12 gab RAM and at the end of each project they stuttered so much because of so many VST plugins, effects, and tracks that they were unable of being worked on. I used FL Studio.

    That being said, my projects have always been really complex when I have compared them to the average professional producer (average just refers to the complexity, not the quality), so I think the Base 15 should be enough, because it has more then DOUBLE the Multicore Speed and also a higher Single Core Speed compared to my previous laptop with i7 5500u. It was actually impressive what that one could already achieve.

    I think you are totally fine

    He is right. You don't want that macbook for music production, trust me. It's not "pro" anymore.
    You can buy a model from 2012 to 2015 :). Even a 2011 model with SSD and more RAM can keep you 4-5 years from now!

    But...but... you'll be able to send Emojis to her with a single click. It's kinda "pro-cool"...
