I am planning to buy MBP 13” 1.4 ghz i5/16/512. I want to do some ios development and data science. Is it good decision for these? Can i use it for 4-5 years?
if you want dual fan cooling, 4Thunderbolt, faster ssd then u get that along with higher base i5 for $400.Thank you for your response. I have one more question, 1.4 i5/16/512 vs 2.4 i5/16/512 is it worth it to pay 400$ and buy high end level 13” or should i stay with 1.4?

imo get 1.4gtz i5 and save rest
Hey guys May be someone have a similar stack and using MBP 13" 2019 1.4Ghz for it. I`ll be very thankful for any information & advices. My current stack is: node.js, angular 6/7/8, im usually using VCode IDE, and other time is web browsing & console work, sometimes i need to run one or two lightweight docker containers (<1gb RAM). Now i have 15" with i7 7700HQ with 16GB RAM (usually have 8-9Gb free on ArchLinux) & 256SSD, but i need more small & lightweight laptop with macOS.
So, 1.4Ghz with 256Gb SSD and 8Gb RAM is enough? Thank you all)
I don't know what kind of development you are doing, but if it involves a lot of compiling, I wouldn't even think about getting an i5, I would go with the highest end processor you can deck it out with.Of course you can. In fact I just bought the exact same model with the exact same configuration for myself, as a Full Stack Systems dev.
On this particular model the 1.7 ghz i7 doesn’t provide that much of a boost compared to the stock 1.4ghz i5, so I didn’t think that upgrade was necessary. On the other hand going with 16 GB of RAM and upgrading the stock SSD storage (for faster read & write speeds) are far more worthwhile upgrades, and as a result your MBP should be able to handle anything you throw at it for the next 4 or 5 years.
