Hi there, I am thinking of treating myself with a brand new Apple laptop and saying goodbye to my currently used old MBP (13-inch, mid 2012 model, without Retina and still with CD/DVD drive). As a university student, I will be moving around campus, carrying a laptop to help me with note taking or doing assignments at breaks. So portability is my first priority when considering buying my next laptop. As far as I know, the 12-inch MacBook offers attractive selling points for being the current lightest and slimest among present Apple laptop. I also personally like the gold coloured one. However, one thing that I am still considering is its speed and performance overall. I usually use laptop for normal web browsing, watching YouTube, using online Google Docs or Sheets to create lecture notes or make simple spreadsheets, diagrams for my study. Perhaps the most heaviest tasks I expects from a laptop is opening multiple tabs on a web-browser (either for searching journal articles, relevant research papers for my study and assignments OR opening multiple YouTube tabs or online video streaming services) or office stuff (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Other than these activities, I can't really find any other tasks I usually do on a laptop computer. As for only having one USB-C for multipurposes, I don't mind it since I can buy some adaptors to solve this problem. However, is the 12-inch MacBook series suitable for my aforementioned requirements? Is it strong enough to carry out those tasks on a daily basis? I'm also thinking of another more expensive option like the just announced 13-inch MBP with touch bar feature. I think it's pretty cool. As for the performance, I'm pretty sure it is more than enough to suit all my regular needs from a laptop. In addition to that, the weight and volume of it are acceptable and not likely to hurt my back when carrying out. Problems are its price and there are only 2 colour options (none of which I am really interested but maybe if having to choose I will stick to the traditional silver but I still prefer the gold finish more). I don't usually change a laptop after at least 4 or 5 years of usage. So which one should I buy to not dissapoint myself? Thanks a lot!
