Hi.

I am upgrading my 2012 Macbook Air to a 2017 Macbook pro 13 inch.

Affinity is really the only heavy load program that I use.

The question is, for Affinity, is it worth going to the I7 processor at 3.5 GHz or is it enough to stay at the 3.1 GHz I5. Will Affinity benefit enough of the hyper threading and additional speed, or is the additional $200 USD not really worth it.

 

Thanks,

Gunnar

That is really hard to say.. i7 is better but then most jobs can be done without problems with i5 processor.

I just did some exhibition pieces with AD using mid-12 13" MBP (2.5 GHz i5, 16 GB RAM). Files were 50-90 MB, mostly vector, some bitmap fills. AD took its time opening, exporting and saving, MBP got hot and fans noisy, otherwise worked just fine.
