It all depends on what you would use it for. What exactly are the specs on the different models your considering?I can find the mid-2012 13” MacBook Pro with upgraded RAM and SSD for about $300-400. I can find both the 13” MacBook Pro late-2013 and MacBook Air 13” 2015 for about $100 more. Which is the best option?
Thanks for your reply. I would be using it for school, some coding, and some light CAD.It all depends on what you would use it for. What exactly are the specs on the different models your considering?
If it were up to me, I’d go with the late 2013 MBP since it is somewhat newer and will probably last longer. My only hesitation is the amount of storage and the amount of ram your considering. Are your certain 128GB of storage is all you need? Once you get that amount, it isn’t especially easy to upgrade. Also, I would strongly recommend at least 8GB of ram if not 16GB. It never hurts to future proof your Mac if you plan to keep it for a number of years. Just some things to think on.Thanks for your reply.
