So I bet this topic has been butchered to death and for that I apologize but here is my dilemma: I'm in Grade 9 (I'm 14) and in high school and require a computer for school (programming, business, comp tech) By the way, I also plan to use this for other tasks such as some light gaming (A game called Kerbal Space Program all other gaming needs are accomplished with my speedy Mac and iPhone 6 but I digress) and web browsing and the like. Before anyone asks this I am paying for the mostly with my own money, I tried to pay for it fully but parents won't let me (they say I've been too hard on myself lately). I'm looking for a Mac (obviously apple fan here) that is portable and will last 4 years. My price range is around $1150CAD (can go up to $1300). I am looking at the certified refurb store and MacMall because better deal than new. Any recommendations? ---------- Oh and I would like an SSD as I cannot stand HDDs. 8GB would be nice as well since I can't swap out memory or anything else for that matter. I forgot to mention I will also be doing light video editing as well.
