I have a 2012 MBP with a 500GB SSD. It’s fine and does everything I want. Unfortunately Apple will probably not allow the latest os to run on it very soon. I am awaiting Apple to release a new 13-14 inch MBP and then I may soon upgrade. Tell me are the newer models much faster over mine? Mine is like 10-15 times faster than it was when I had a spinner.

I will buy an external DVD drive, a USB adapter so I can sync my GPS, download photos from my Canon and such. All in all it will be much lighter than my 2012.

if you say "2020 series will be faster? for sure YES", definetly will be faster than our mine.
but how fast? i think it depend on our task and activity. and sometimes, we're not notice about the speed except in specific test/workload.

if you're working with photo/movie/music editing, 2020 series will be better and faster.
from 2012 to 2020 series will be huge different in tech architecture like processor, ram, ssd speed.

I guess it would be a MacBook Pro 2019 13 inch if I do upgrade.

By the way, whats is your 2012 spec???
im thinking now, if you're old macbook is 15" with quad core processor and 16GB ram,
plan with 2019 13" is not a good idea maybe
