    Hi guys. So I need some advice. I'm currently debating on a early 2013 mbp i7 with a 250 SSD and a 2016 MacBook air 13 128 SSD. Is the MBP too slow compared to the air ?I do basic office work watch movies etc.

    Thanks guys !

    what are the specs on both computers other than 2013 mbp i7 or 2016 mba 13?

    Is the mbp a 13 or 15 inch? speed of processor and RAM configuration, retina or non-retina?

    The mba what processor and speed and RAM configuration?


    without knowing what each computer is, it is hard to make a recommendation

    I had a 2013 i7 MBP up to December of last year. It was still working fine for everything I needed. Only slowdowns were in lightroom and final cut, so I ditched it while it was still worth something.

    The mp is a 13 inch i7

    The MBP 2013 is a 13 inch. I'm not sure of the processor yet it's an i7 . They belong to a friend of haven't gotten the full specs yet

    You'll probably want more space than 256gb, it may sound like a lot... but it's not.

    I would go with the 2016 MBA then get a Sintech M.2 adapter and an m.2 NVMe 512GB drive and you will have one nice MBA. Faster architecture, faster drive (about 3x faster than what you will see with the 2013 MBP if you go with the NVMe M.2 drive) and 3 years newer so longer support.
