I planned on doing this last year but some financial restraints came up and I had to put it on hold. I'm just looking for some basic advice on what MacBook I should consider here. Budget is not really an issue at this point but I always try to go for the most affordable and sensible solution. This MacBook is just going to be serving as my own personal machine. I will mainly be using it for web browsing, social media, streaming services, e-mail, and managing things like my spreadsheets and calendar. I will not be doing any gaming at all on this machine and I won't be hooking it up to an external monitor of any kind. I also doubt I would be doing any kind of video editing, if I did it would be very much beginner stuff. I will be utilizing iCloud to its fullest extent and the new features Yosemite will be bringing with the full syncing between my iPhone 5S and iPad Air. It will mainly be used in the house though I may occasionally take it to work back and forth or random places, this will not be a regular thing though. I come from a background where I've used powerful full gaming desktops I've built and recently I've found myself as I'm getting older I am just not much of a gamer anymore on the PC at least. I'm planning on moving my gaming rig and changing it into a general multimedia rig and moving it out in the den in my house. Most of my gaming as shifted over to the PS4 where all of my friends play anyways, nobody really plays on PC that I know anymore. Right now my current laptop is a older ThinkPad 400 with a SSD installed and while it does fine for my needs I am just thinking of a Mac just for the build quality, much increased speed and longevity.
