So I have been waiting for the new MacBook pro that I thought I would buy. Now that it came, I am a little disappointed actually. For what I can see, to buy a new laptop here in 2020, the Macbook Air is the best buy. Currently, I have two Imacs, my main computer, a late 2012 Imac with a quad-core i7 and 1 TB fusion drive. This is the computer I have been most happy with ever. It is still doing OK, but it has started to misbehave once in a while. It also is a bit slow showing preview in Rapidweaver (Rapidweaver being my main cause for buying a new Mac). But I can live with this computer. Then I have an iMac from 2014 with a HD and a i5 processor. That is a really slow computer due to the HD. It also has a small burned spot on the screen, so I never use it. I keep it only as a backup if something should happen to my late 2012 Imac.
So I also contemplating to not buy any new Mac this year. Since I am generally happy with my old computer, seeing the negligible increase in performance of the Macbook Pros 13 inch over the Macbook Air i5 model, why should I buy a new computer? Currently, I do not have a laptop. I was always in favor of desktop Macs and when the Imacs came along, the Imacs, of which I have had a lot during my rather long life by this time. I never owned a PC by the way. I went straight from Atari TT to Mac in the mid-eighties :-).
My old trusty Imac scores 817 on geekbench. The new Macbook Air actually only scores 1046 in single core performance.
So my fellow Rapidweavers, what would you do in my case?
