    Buying Mac pro

    Rozafn

       

      I’m looking for buy a new laptop.

      The 2 models I’m concern now is “Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (Late 2016) .

       

      1:  2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core

       

          16GB of 2133 MHz RAM

       

          512GB PCIe SSD

       

           AMD Radeon Pro 450 GPU (2GB GDDR5)

      Price : 2,099$

      &

      2:  2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core

           2.9GHz quad-core Intel Core i7,
          Turbo Boost up to 3.8GHz

       

          16GB of 2133 MHz RAM

       

          1TB PCIe SSD

       

           AMD Radeon Pro 460 GPU (4GB GDDR5)

        Price : 2,499$

       

      Mostly I work with photoshop & illustrator full-time. Is 2GB graphics card will be enough for me, or is better I buy the 4GB.

      I'll be happy if you guys help me.

       

      Thanks

          Depends on whether you intend to connect external screens, or not. If you do, I would strongly suggest you get the 4GB version.

           

          Aside from this, if you intend to do any serious 3d work, again: get the 4GB version.

           

          The 1TB SSD does provide much more room. 512GB is filled up quickly if you do a lot of heavy duty graphics design work and/or work with large files and many photos, in which case I'd go for the 1TB SSD. Better safe than sorry later.

            I agree that the 4 gig graphics card version would probably suit you best.

             

            I am a strong advocate for external storage, so my laptop does speed and efficiency is not affected in any way.

             

            Also I feel it is paramount to have your files backed up online and or on external hard drives so you never loose important files.
