Back in April 2015 at what seemed like the final refresh we would be getting of what was a tried and trusted design I purchased the 'new' Macbook Pro 13'', 2.9 i5, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD. I use the SD slot occasionally but not the USB ports that much, back then I just thought that I didn't want to lose the option. Now my predicament is that the machine is great, but I've largely stopped using it and I don't use the ports, i.e USB-A or HDMI. My iPad Pro has taken over daily routine tasks like email, image tweaking, web, light gaming and I store documents in iCloud, music on Google Music and other things on Google Drive! Home media is served by Raspberry Pi with Plex. Aside to that my work machine blows it out of the water in terms of rendering 3D environments (Some UE4, VRay, Sketchup and Revit) , building modelling (Revit, 3DS Max) etc - all down to Quad Core, 32GB RAM, dGPU etc. I've been trying to fit personal projects in whilst at work to take account of the power of the machine. To complicate matters I'm also in the early stages of learning to code and not having a main mac means I miss out on XCode, obviously I need a new-ish Mac to develop on, an iPad only gets you so far with notes and tutorials before you need to delve in. I'm based in the UK and pricing has surged with the Brexit vote, as such I purchased at £1350, the machine still has warranty due to Applecare, so I think I would recover most of the purchase price. So my thought process has been to move it on, but for what - - Should I just keep the machine and treat it as a 'base machine' storing photos, music, documents off the web and continue to take advantage of the machine at work? - Will this years Quad Core 15'' Macbook Pro or a refurbished last years model be good enough to start using for things like UE4, Unity or Blender? Then at a later date get a dGPU enclosure via TB3? - Keep this machine but invest in a dGPU TB2 enclosure? - Sell it whilst sentiment for the older design is still high and decide over the next few months before the typical spec bump in October?
