I'm looking at transitioning from a windows to a mac and have been doing a lot of research on which model would suit me best. I'm mainly investing in a mac for the video/photo editing programs and as a student I also have a limited budget. I want something that can easily run programs such as premiere pro and photoshop but won't cost thousands. I'm currently looking at the macbook pro with the 2.7GHz Processor, 128 GB Storage, and 8GB RAM, as it is the cheapest option and I would be able to use an external hard drive to hold all of my extra files, which would be significantly cheaper than paying for more internal storage. My current laptop is only 2GHz and has 4GB RAM so I feel like this would be a good upgrade. Is it worth paying more to upgrade my RAM or processor or would this model do me fine?
