Hi everyone, I am new to the forum, but have been reading for a bit. Currently, I am a chromebook (Acer r11, 4gb ram, 128 gb SSD) and PC (Dell Inspiron 15) user looking to transition into MacOS. I am not a heavy user and I use my machines for web browsing, occasional word processing/spreadsheet/office use/note taking, and multimedia. I am in the Apple ecosphere and have been for years with iPhones for personal and work use, an Apple Watch, and previously had iPads for personal and work use. I started out wanting to buy a used 13" 2012 MBP and upgrade the heck out of it, but find the "large" size and weight a turn-off. I figure for my use, I want something portable and light. I really like the MB 12" and the new MBP 13" retina for their trackpad and screen, but the price of entry does not work. My significant other has a 2017 13" MBA and I am impressed by the long battery life and the sturdiness of the build - especially the deep travel on the keyboard. That leads me to the MBA 11" - the 2015 mjvm2ll/a model. I want a machine that will last a few years and be dependable and is under $500.00. I am especially interested in an 8 gb model with any size SSD. I have seen used ones in various conditions in both configurations. Do you all think that this machine would suit my needs or should I hold out until after the possible October event and see if the MB 12" is a better fit?
