My mid-2014 Macbook Pro (2.6GHz, i5) broke on me yesterday. I took it to a Mac specialist and he explained that because I use CC daily for work (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Muse, After Effects) my i5 graphics card has come to the end (or something like that). I took extremely good care of my Macbook to ensure it was never updated above what it could handle, had space, etc, so I was shocked it could just stop working over-night.
I'm a freelance designer, but I'm freshly graduated and I have very little money as it is. I plan to buy a second hand 2014 or 2015 Pro model again, as that is all that's in my price range, however, I have a few questions about specs:
Please help, I'm a little overwhelmed. Also, what would be the minimum spec I can get away with long-term in your opinions?
