Hi, As of today I purchased a mid-2013 Macbook Air (used, obviously) in hopes of upgrading my computer from my mid-2009 Macbook Pro. I made the purchase because my Macbook Pro has been slow since the start, but I have to give it excellent credit for its age. I purchased the Pro for a pretty cheap price (in my opinion) to replace my 2014 ASUS VivoBook and have not regretted it. My only regret that I could say that I have is that I wish I would have bought a Macbook Air instead of a Pro, and had it be a later release year so I have more updated processors. My school hands out laptops for us to use, and they are early-2014 release Macbook Air 11". The laptops work splendidly and meet nearly every speed requirement I could ask for. With the impressive features, I wanted to see if I could get the same out of a 13" mid-2013 release! I use Adobe Photoshop CC pretty heavily, and on my school laptop I had used Final Cut Pro as well as Minecraft. Now, on my Macbook Pro, Photoshop has been fairly quick (there are times where it does act up and will be VERY laggy, making the whole computer laggy) and Finder has presented the most problems. Finder is slow, laggy, and a pain to deal with. Other times it's not, but most of the time it is. But it's a 2009 Macbook running on OSX - El Captain. It works for its age. What I'm asking, I suppose, is how much of a speed difference will there be? That's the main reason I am updating, as I'd like to resume using Final Cut Pro and speed up Adobe Photoshop! Any differences listed, speed-wise and app-wise, would be fantastic! Thanks in advance.
