Leave any finishing thoughts here that you may feel are necessary and beneficial to the discussion. I need: The best macbook for the cheapest price. What I want to do with it: - Doing stuff online - being happy that MacOS "just works" - lots of keynote presentations for work - audio editing - video editing like once in a year 512GB SSD is a must for me, everything else should be just the best stuff for the least money I am able to spend 1500 € (+ Apple Care on top) Long story about me: I was a windows user from 19XX to 2006 and I bought my first macbook pro then. It was switched out a few years later thanks to apple care and bad apple repairmen so I got another macbook. So I got a Macbook for around 10 years and decided: **** Apple, **** expensive Macbooks, I can linux. So now I am stuck with a T460s and a not so satisfying user experience and keep longing for buying another macbook. I quit Windows because I was fed up with driver ********. So here I am: I want to spend 1500 € max and want to have a 512 GB SSD. So what's the best bang for the buck? I was hoping for greatly updated Macbook Airs but the processor update doesn't cut it for me. I read somewhere a 2015 Macbook pro would be the best choice for a cheap Macbook pro while having still good specs is that true? If so, which one exactly? I am looking for specific model numbers. My opinion about macbook air: 2 year old Hardware, for such a high price seems like a rip off for me. My opinion about 12" Macbook: Seems fishy, like a not ready Macbook pro, feels also ripoffy for me My Opinion about Macbook Pro: How can anyone afford that!? Thanks for helping me in advance!
