I'm currently debating whether to get a MacBook or a MacBook Pro 13 nTB. For the same price second hand I could get either a 2016 Pro or a 2017 MacBook. I'm not a heavy user or gamer, but I do like to make movies once in a while after holidays. Recently I've been using an old XPS and premier pro for this and I have to use proxies that are 1/4 size of 1080p. I've seen videos and read articles that show that the MacBook Pro 13 nTB is quite capable of editing 4K in final cut, more amazingly the MacBook (even the 2015 model) is capable as well. Seems to be the efficiency of final cut because premier pro performance on both macs is poor. With that in mind, in terms of power requirements, I don't see any drawbacks to getting a 2017 MacBook over a 2016 MacBook Pro 13 nTB except a few things. Supposedly the screen quality is better on the Pros, so are the speakers and the Pros actually have thunderbolt 3 ports. I would like to hear your 2 cents worth about this.
