    3.1Ghz i5 with Iris Plus 650, or 2.5Ghz i7 with a 640? All other specs the same, and will likely just use iMovie or another simple editing program for quick edits, adding music, etc.

    The iris plus will be marginally better it if you want fast 4K rendering you will need a 15 inch with a dGPU and quad core processor. If you can wait this yrs 13 inch model should either have a quad option or Radeon graphics.

    Thanks! Was trying to find the cheapest way for my buddy to edit his drone videos, and it’s just for a hobby using iMovie (professional results not required), so I took the 2 choices from Apple Refurbished. He has an older PC that he uses for everything else. But maybe I’ll talk him into an iMac after the refresh.
