Macbook pro/air advice
8 months ago

Hi all,

I have to start with saying that I have never used an apple laptop before despite having various iOS devices. My old windows laptop is getting really slow now and I decided to try macbook for a change.

I shoot 16MP RAW files and use LR4 as well as Elements 11. I very rarely import more than 200 photos at a time and literally never batch process more than 5.

Would older, 13" (non retina) macbook with core i5 and 4GB be sufficient for my use.

I do not have a space for a desktop/imac now and will have to stick to laptop for next 12 months.

Also my budget is very limited and 15 inch macbook is out of question.

Please forgive me if it has been asked before but I can't seem to find anything relevant.

I would really appreciate your advice on that matter.
