I’m upgrading my current workstations. At the office, I’m using an older macbook docked to a cinema display, and then at home office I have a mac mini connected to another display.
I’m going to want an iMac for the office and have a newer Macbook to design on the go/presentations. I’ll use this at home also. The Macbook will need to be close to perf of the iMac. (I’m familiar with all of their hardware specs)
So, knowing my needs, wondering if:
a) I can sacrifice the storage space on the Macbook to a smaller 256GB-ish ssd and just carry a nice slim external drive around, and use an iMac with a larger fusion drive perhaps.
b) I’d be looking for a 15" Macbook, and I’ve had good experience buying from macofalltrades – however, looking for a newer 15" macbook with 16gb ram and a 256gb is hard to get. (And I don’t have the budget for a brand new one of that caliber)
Basically, I’ll often times need to design on the Macbook with just the laptop screen, so I will want a 15" version, but will also work from the iMac.
Currently, I’m using Google Drive to just sync what I need, and that 30gb storage meets my needs pretty well.
Any thoughts ?
Or perhaps discuss what your workstations are made up of ? (Especially if you’re the type to work from at least two different machines)
