    Hello All,



    I really need a new computer before mine completely dies on me. Currently, I have a Mid-2012, 13” MacBook Pro. Its specs are: 2.9 GHz Core i7, with 16GB RAM, and 256 SSD. I’m slightly on a budget and I am looking at the 13” rMBP BUT it seems as though the 2.7 GHz Core i5 processor is of lesser quality than the MacBook I already own.



    I’ve been having problems with my MacBook of randomly shutting down and losing data. I’ve ran multiple Hardware tests, replaced the RAM, and I don’t know what else to do.



    Can someone give me some insight. I need a RELIABLE computer. Thanks.

    Have you given any thought to backing up your macbook and then reloading the OS from scratch? Unexpected shutdowns are sometimes caused by corrupt system or application files. After re-installing the OS just use it a while and then gradually install your applications you use most and see if there are any unexpected shutdowns. Sounds like you have a nice machine. It would be a shame to replace it if it only needs to be refreshed.

    Very good advice - and free! Very well could be a software issue and nothing to do with the actual hardware.
