Hi guys! I'm pretty new here, both in the world of Macs and MacRumors. I'm planning on buying on the 13-inch Macbook Pro with the Touchbar that was released in 2017 and I need your opinion on this. For background, these are the options on Apple's website: Processor 3.1GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz (standard) 3.3GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz (+ $90) 3.5GHz dual-core 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz (+ $230) Memory 8 Gb (standard) 16 Gb (+ $180) What is your guy's opinion on upgrading the processor from the standard i5 at 3.1 GHz to the i7 at 3.5GHz? I'm planning on "specing" out my first MBP, but if the upgrade is only giving me an almost negligible real-world performance difference, I'd rather not upgrade. Background: I'm currently a graduate student that must use the MS Office panel plus a statistical software (IBM SPSS). Coming in from an extensive Windows and Android history. Slightly above exposure on Mac's and iOS. PS: In addition, what is that "turbo boost up to ..."? Is that similar to overclocking video cards? -Thank you! Any relevant answers are pretty much appreciated!
