So, I'm buying a new MacBook. Question is, which one?

    Thanks for your tip, Tom.

    Speaking about hardware, is the Macbook that faster, compared to previous versions?

      I can only compare it to my last computer, a 2011 Macbook Air. So yes, it's about a million times faster ;)

      For everyday design work – Sketch, Photoshop, Indesign – it just works without any lagging or delay. Fast enough for me.

        Cool, but air isn't really a good computer to compare to, it categorize as a netbook. The new MBP does look cool and great hardware, but the lack of ports is a big deal in my opinion. Gl

          I worked on a MBA for a year as a freelance UX designer just fine. It would slow down on larger sketch files, but it was doable. It isn't purely a netbook, perhaps a netbook to someone expecting every laptop to be capable of particle physics.
