Honestly I don't need something super powerful, my old laptop was a 13" model and fairly "middle of the road" in specs in 2011 and it still does everything I need just fine (occasional photo editing, websurfing, playing 1080p video). The main thing that's important to me is fixability. I've replaced batteries on this thing at least 4 times and so I wana factor that into future laptops, if it can only be replaced by Apple, it's a deal breaker cuz that would get so expensive so fast! D: And anything over 256 gigs of storage would be peachy. I get by now with a 256 gig internal ssd but figured as file sizes increase, I should future proof myself a bit. I gotta be able to plug in usb cards without a dongle. No if's ands or butts. Either a built in SD card reader or HDMI output would be a huge plus without needling adapters. Not a deal breaker without it but it's stuff I use every other week and it completely diminishes the value of a laptop if I gotta haul around extra adapters needlessly. Just looking for the best bang for my buck in that 13" or maybe 15" size. I by no means need a workhorse, I have a max BTO 2017 imac so I'm good there. Just looking for a "on the road" laptop, thanks guys!
