I think my mid-2012 MBP 9.2 is giving up the ghost, and I'm not sure if I want to even spend week rebuilding it. When I started coming here back in January of 2016, a couple of people said that the current model of MBP that I have is better than the new ones, because it is upgradeable. Is that still true in August 2016? If I get a new MacBook, I would like it to have a SSD and tons of RAM so that it is wickedly fast. (I do lots of development, audio editing, Photoshop, and am looking at getting into video editing.) What i don't want is to drop a couple grand on a new laptop oly to find out it is outdated in a year and that I have to go out and buy yet another one. Likewise, i don't want to buy a brand new version fo what I have now, and find out that even if I pimp it out that it cannot compete with a new MBP. Can anyone offer some advice on this? (I am VERY upset that I didn't have enough time to clone my current MBP yesterday, and then El Captian became corrupted when I logged in last night!! It takes so long for me to rebuild and configure computers that I would rather have a root canal...) Please help!
