    First, sorry of my english is not so good. I need some help to choose the best option.

    Reasons: I have a Macbook pro 15"of Mid 2010 and it works well(I changed RAM to 8gb) but sometimes is slow.
    Needs: I use Mac for editing photography, design at photoshop, illustrator and for editing video with Premiere and After Effects. Of course, to download archives and a high daily use.
    Daily use: I need to have a notebook because I move to my clients offices in the mornings, although on the afternoon I usually stay in home.

    I will buy a monitor of 21" for home, I have some harddisks and after buy one of this two options:

    1. Buy a high end Macbook pro 15", with:
    • 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz
    • 16GB 2133MHz memory
    • 512GB PCIe-based SSD
    • Radeon Pro 450 with 2GB memory
    • Backlit Keyboard (English) & User's Guide
    • Four Thunderbolt 3 ports
    • Touch Bar and Touch ID
    2- Buy first a Macbook pro 13", with this options:
    • Procesador Intel Core i5 de doble núcleo a 2,9 GHz (Turbo Boost de hasta 3,3 GHz)
    • 8 GB de memoria a 2.133 MHz
    • SSD PCIe de 256 GB
    • Intel Iris Graphics 550
    • Teclado retroiluminado (español) y manual del usuario (español)
    • Cuatro puertos Thunderbolt 3
    • Touch Bar y Touch ID
    and some time later(maybe a year or not), when the Macbook pro 13" dont cover my needs, buy a Hackintosh with this options:
    • PLACA Z170-HD3P
    • PROCESADOR I7-6700K
    • 16 GB DDR4
    • GRAFICA GTX 960 2GB
    • SSD 512 GB
    • MacOS

    Note 1: The hakintosh is more powerful than the mac book pro 15" above
    Note 2: Both options have the same prices, maybe the option of two computer is a little more expensive.

    So, I am thinking in the advantage of movility and always have a powerful equipment for the next 5-6 years on my shoulders, or have two computer, one for movility (size and weight lower) but not so powerful and other as a base in home with a powerful computer I could update in the future.

    Thanks guys.
