My main computer uses are web browsing, Netflix, Spotify, DVD's, email, LibreOffice, GarageBand recording, and minimal photo editing. I prefer laptops because I like to be able to work in different places around the house, but I rarely need to travel with my computer, so I'm not concerned with size or weight. A bigger screen would be nice for watching movies, but I could also take the money I saved and buy an external display for that purpose. I can afford to buy a Pro, but given my uses, wouldn't it be overkill? Is it worth the $500 or so (based on Refurb pricing) to go Pro? Would I ever notice the extra speed given what I'm using it for? Are there other considerations?
