Hi everyone, I have, well had a late 2009 13" core 2 duo 2.26ghz Macbook pro that recently stopped working. I did upgrade a few times with 8GB of ram and a 256GB Samsung SSD. I have one year of college left and have around $2000 saved up for a new computer. I'm not sure if I want to spend that entire amount on a new laptop or not but I want something that will last as long as my 2009 did (more than 7 years). What I use the laptop for: Web surfing, e-mail, Microsoft office (mostly excel and word). The problem with my last laptop is that every time I would open a multi-tab excel file, it would freeze. I usually have a few tabs within the excel files. I also use NetBeans and Axure RP 8, VM Ware which I run Ubuntu. I also had my mac dual booted with Windows 7. I want my new laptop to be able to run Windows 10 so I can use Access, Visual Studio, and other windows apps. I do not do any Photoshop or video editing but on occasion, I will play around with Logic Pro X. I have been looking at 2015 15" refurbished mbp's and the new 2016 13" or 15" ones. Just want to get some suggestions and a newer mac lol. Thanks everyone!
