Hey MacRumors I am looking to buy a new Macbook Pro. I’ll lay down a bit of information about myself and then the two options i have in an attempt to shed some light on the situation! Me Im a Graphic Designer. I spend about 9 hours a day on either Photoshop, Illustrator or In Design. I never do 3D work and rarely do any animation. I occasionally code. I don’t game on the machine. 95% of the free time is spent on the internet either browsing or watching tv. Macs I have two options when it comes to Macbook Pros to buy. OPTION 1 (Second hand but in amazing condition - very well looked after) Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013) Processor - 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7 Memory - 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 - (This CAN’T be updated because it is fused to the motherboard) Graphics - Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB PLUS Discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Storage - 256 GB Flash Storage PRICE - Unsure - need to make an offer - £2000 Brand new. OPTION 2 (A new machine) Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, New) Processor - 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.4 GHz Memory - 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3 - (I would update too 16GB when purchased.) Graphics - Intel Iris Pro Graphics Storage - 256 GB Flash Storage PRICE - £1599 The main differences between the two machines are: OPTION 1 Discrete Graphic Card OPTION 2 Turbo Boost of 3.4GHz on professor 16GB Ram So in a rough attempt to sum up 1 - Which machine is better suited for me? 2 - How much should i offer for the second hand machine? 3 - Is a discrete graphics card better than extra 8GB ram + a brand new mac? Or surprise option 4 - are apple planning to release a new Macbook Pro anytime soon!? Any help on this will be massively appreciated! Thanks in advance.
