16GB if you using a lot of RAM memory with multiple design apps open at the same time. You could maybe wait until the Macbook Pro's 16" have the M1 or the next gen processor (M2?) . Rumoured to be mid 2021
I doubt you’ll notice the RAM improvement with the vast majority of uses. Agree on disk space though, but I guess cloud/NAS is fairly accessible now.
im looking at caving in and getting my first macbook pro, im in the design sector but with the amount of different specs and macbook pros from the last few years i dont know what specs to go for. need speed as i use adobe creative suite. any tips? :)
I started using macs 35 years ago, when pcs were just not powerful enough or stable enough to run any graphics software. I've occasionally had to use pc's due to customers software onyl working on pc's but always been relieved when I found a workaround on the mac. When I used to work on a Windows NT Barco station years ago I always favoured the mac and it's OS. Pc's were just too unstable, crash after crash For an unknown reason, maybe due to cost, I ventured into the world of Dell with a laptop, jeez, that was a bad move , 3 months later they had it back admitting it was faulty. Every mac i have bought has lasted a lot longer than pc's based on comparisons to friends and colleagues pc's I am presently using a 2011 27" iMac, still got years lt in it! Not as fast as it used to be but still performs jobs Yes they have made mistakes in the past, but I have always felt that the mac has always led the pack and set the trend in graphics From what I've seen the Macbook Air8GB with 512GB is plenty for 95% of Joe Public. Doesnt seem enough different to warrant spending more on a Macbook Pro Remember the M1 8GB is not the same 8GB on the previous macs and of course can not be compared to pc's. It a different class
Yes google Windows laptops
