Finally getting a rather large paycheck in mid-month and I have about $2100 (that’s AUD, USD would be $1500) to spend on a new MacBook, and I’m trying to figure out my best use. I was worried it was going to take me a lot longer than that for something to come in, and I’ve been on my polycarbonate MacBooks running Linux, unable to edit or do graphics work for a while, especially since my Mac Pro kicked the bucket.
I do graphics and video editing, specifically with Adobe products. My concerns are that the SSD amounts and RAM amounts seem very tiny indeed, like going backwards. My 2012 had RAID 0 SSDs with 500GBs and 16GBs of RAM. I am not prepared to transition away from MacOS yet, so because of work, I still need it. Which means, I’m kept in the ecosystem at least another couple of years.
