    Hi everyone, I am going to give macbook a shot. In the future, I may buy a new one depending on my experience. I have found two macbook for sale. One is 13.3" MacBook Pro Mid 2012 ( 2.50GHz i5 / 500GB SATA HDD, 4GB RAM ) with 381 cycle count. $465
    The other one is MacBook Pro A1502 13.3" Laptop - MGX72LL/A (2014)-Retina Display- with 8GB ram, and 128 gb SSD.(no info on cycle count) $680
    I did some research on both of them. 2012 model has up-gradable, and it won't cost too much. On the other hand, I cannot upgrade ram on 2014 model, and bigger SSD cost a lot more than the 2012 model. I use Photoshop, Premiere, Final Cut, and etc. but not very much. Which one should I buy?

    If you don't mind the non-retina display, you should buy the 2012 model and upgrade the RAM and put a SSD in it :D .
