Hi all

I don’t use my MacBook pro enough so I’m thinking about switching it to a Mac Pro 2013 quad core base model. I have a old pc I use for CS GO once a week, maybe the Mac Pro can replace that machine too.

Do you guys think this is a fair deal

He gets my MacBook Pro I get his Mac Pro. Nothing else.

on the other hand, you could sell it and get a 2018 hexacore mac mini and eventually an eGPU that would destroy the 2013 mac pro.

In Denmark I can sell my mac for 1360 USD. The mac Mini 6 Core cost 1.466 USD in Denmark. So I need to spend extra on the eGPU.

But its a good point hmm

I think the 2013 Mac Pro is just too old, I'd find other options such as what Ploki recommended.
