ASK DN: Would you get the new MacBook?

    I'm definitely into it, but, as with others, am concerned about the processor. I don't really care about the price, given that my computer is second only to my body as the thing I use most in my life.

    I've proven to myself that I can do pretty much all I need to do on a mid-2011 11" MBA with 4GB of RAM, but I was definitely hoping for more of an upgrade.

    Also, gold rules.

      What do you do? I have always had Macbook Pros because of their power but these days I am mostly doing Sketch vector work and programming. Not very graphics intensive.

        Currently working as a CD, which I'm discovering involves as many spreadsheets as it does .PSDs, but I do all kinds of screen and print design, heavy bitmap and vector illustration, heavy photo editing, frontend coding, some video editing, some animation, some music recording and editing, some 3-D modeling, etc.

          Cool, thanks. No noticeable performance issues for video, music, or 3-d modeling at 4GB?

            Mm, it's noticeable—just not prohibitive. You might get a pinwheel here and there, but it's never gotten in my way.

            That said, I've yet to do anything with 4k.
