      My dads a Apple technician and these two customers had these broken laptops, my dad was unsure if he was able to fix them, since they were no value to the customer my dad purchased them both at his risk. He was able to fix them both! My dad kindly said I could have one! Im learning After Effects as I'm getting into video editing and I would like to know which one would give better performance.

      Don't worry about hard drive because my dad said he will upgrade it to a SSHD of appropriate size.
