Hey folks. I've got an early 2014 MacBook Air that I really love. The only real drawback on it has been the 128GB of storage. That went quicker than I thought, especially once I put Parallels and Windows on here to run ArcGIS. Worked around it by throwing my Photos library onto an SD card, but would be nice to not do that. My mom has a PC that's about a decade old and on its last legs. It takes 5 minutes to boot. Yah. So I'm exploring options for her. She basically needs email, web browsing, and Office. I'm trying to inform her that even if she got a brand new Windows PC, Office would look about like it does on my Mac -- vastly different from the 2003 version she's using. I've been wanting to get her on a Mac forever -- she's had an iPhone and iPad for at least 5 years -- and I don't think she would have trouble learning. So my idea is to give her this MacBook Air and to get myself a new computer. I don't necessarily need it (yet), but she's never really into the latest and greatest. Only way I got her to budge on an iPhone 8 Plus was the giant screen and her crap battery life on an iPhone 5s. I'm obviously considering each of the three MacBook lines, and I personally don't need much above the minimum right now. I may try to learn more GIS using ArcGIS, but this MBA ran it well on 4GB of RAM. I use email and browsing, manage my photos (not much editing since I don't have Photoshop), and sometimes do some video editing from iPhone videos or 2.5K drone videos (no 4K). So I see this refurbished MBP that looks to have everything I need for a decent price: https://www.apple.com/shop/product/...-Intel-Core-i5-with-Retina-display-Space-Gray I love the movement to USB-C, and a friend at work (not Hulk or Thor) showed me neat adapters to get all the old ports if needed. I think it's about as light as my MacBook Air and probably way more powerful. Most importantly, it has 256GB of storage. So is this a great option? I've read about a lot of possible updates for the MacBook lines, but none of them seem like they're going to happen until June, maybe mostly much later in the year. Even then, they probably won't be completely worth the extra few hundred bucks and I doubt these refurbs will drop much more. I haven't used a MacBook Pro since about 2010, so I'd love to hear owners' advice. Thanks!
