Hey everyone, I recently posted about a RAM issue, which I somewhat resolved. But now my near-vintage 2010 15" Macbook Pro is likely going to have to be sent in for a repair or completely replaced. Something's going on with my built-in Wi-Fi, and working with Apple's technicians over the phone we isolated it to be a hardware issue (likely with the AirPort card). I have an appointment with a store in a few days, and I'm anticipating that I'll have to send it in for a depot repair. This would be the second time in the computer's 5.5-year lifespan that it's been sent in for a depot repair. Considering that one of my logic board's RAM slots has come loose, I want to assume that the $3XX.00 depot repair would replace the board along with whatever's going on with my AirPort card, but I'm not sure. I was comfortable cracking it open and replacing the RAM but I'm not sure I'm comfortable doing this repair / replace myself. Along with the faulty RAM slot and my weird AirPort card, it's still running on the original battery (which has almost run flat) and the original hard disk (which has really slowed down). My question is, considering that my machine is that old, is it worth throwing more money to repair it and hold out for potential Skylake Macbook Pros next year, or should I just bite the bullet and replace it now? I really want to take advantage of the Skylake processors and Thunderbolt 3, but I'm wary of purchasing the first iteration of a redesigned Mac notebook (after what happened with the 2012 RMBP displays), and they might not be released until May or June. I'm a 3D visualization artist, so I work with packages like Sketchup, Rhino, Cinema 4D, Revit, etc, but I don't necessarily do any rendering on my own computer (only modeling and texturing). I haven't really been able to do 3D work on my old Mac for a few years, and I miss it very much. I paid $1800 after the educational discount back in 2010 for the 15" 2.4 1st-gen i5 with the integrated / discrete graphics setup. The same price range would get me the base 15" configuration with the 2.2 4th-gen i7, integrated graphics only and 256GB SSD for $1900 after the educational discount. I don't mind the lower storage because the majority of my files are housed on external hard disks now, but I'm wary about not having a discrete graphics card. Any advice? I really want the new machine to last as long as my old one if I have to replace it.
