Hey all! I’m currently rocking a MacBook Air 11” from 2013. It’s the entry level model with 4GB ram and a 128 GB SSD. I recently began taking courses on treehouse for web development and so far I’m loving it! I have an interest in graphic design and further exploring coding as well. Unfortunately my MacBook isn’t cutting it with screen size, power or resolution. I originally bought the 11” for its portability but since I bought an iPad the mba’s purpose has felt redundant and it’s rarely the first device I reach for. It’s lightening fast for web browsing but running more than a few applications significantly slows it down. I was thinking about switching my set up; grabbing a keyboard for the iPad and swapping the air for an iMac. If this set up works, I will eventually upgrade to a new 27” from 2017 and spec it out thouroughly. But since my budget doesn’t allow it at this current time (and won’t for another 6-8 months) I’m considering buying a used 21.5” from 2010-2013. My minimum specs would be 8GB ram and an SSD (hopefully 256+)I’d consider trying to upgrade the ram and HDD myself on models that allow it, but I hear that’s rather difficult. TLDR; I want to upgrade to an iMac but my budget only allows for a used model at this current time. I need a larger monitor than my current MacBook. I’m curious if an older model is worth it, specifically how far back I can go before the CPU and screen resolution make it not worth it. Any input is appreciated!
