    Hi everyone,
    I'm thinking about moving from Windows to MacOS. My needs are MS office, internet and email, light photoedit with Capture One 10 and Lightroom and sometimes video editing (like holiday movies) with Final Cut Pro X (from what I understand is more optimized than Adobe) or Premiere Pro. Do you think that the MacBook pro 13 base model (NO touchbar) is enough? And what about the late 2015 MBP 13 retina base model? Any advice?

    Thanks!
    Thomas

    yes the 2015 or 2016 base model will be fine for that. I'd get at least 8gb of ram.

    Apple doesn't ship less than 8GB now on any machine. On the Pro models they only equip up to 16GB, though, which is an issue.

    Apart from that, make peace with dongles. Also, if your needs don't require a really high end processor, stick with the base model CPU and upgrade your storage. I wish I had done that with my MacBook Pro. A few MHz less pales in comparison to actually having the storage space to actually use those MHz.
