My macbook pro just got stolen and I need to replace it for school.
I just recently built a PC at home so I don’t need something incredibly powerful for what I am using it for.
Mostly word processing, I stream a lot of movies, possibly some slideshow stuff, but I’d really like to start using my gaming PC for the video editing (amateur home movies) so it doesn’t need to do that.
My main reason for coming here, is toward the end of its life boot up and accessing files be it a word document, or a photo. Took a ridiculous amount of time to load.
In terms of processing speed this is what I was working with
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache
1.7GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz
This is the processor from the 11” Macbook air that I think should suit my needs. I just want to make sure I am not going to frustrated with the processor speed.
I am also going with an SSD this time and that should also help to eliminate any frustrations regarding load times.
