My late 2011 17 Macbook pro I believe the GPU issue is coming back again sadly i think I need a new system. I have been looking at the new Pro and seems like they are much more expensive now. I had 2011 17 I7 with 16gb ram with 512ssd .. 16gb and the ssd i added. I plan on keeping the memory and ssd from the macbook and doing that trade in program. I find myself I dont move from my desk alot anymore so it was staying closed with 2 monitors external. I am trying to still use 2 monitors and want to be network attached just seems faster access files. I have looked at PRO and too do this I am over 2000 bucks. Do the new pros need 16gb memory or do they work well with 8gb? I dont think I could go lower than 512gb if it my only rig. I have thought about a mini and air combo. Use the air when i am traveling which is not much and the mini at home I am seeing mini around 700 for 8gb and 1tb I dont believe its SSD thou.. Will 2 devices get to be a pain? I tired to find a used macbook but I dont want to buy someone else problem.
