      $2800 for a laptop and still a dogshit GPU. Amazing

      Why shit? 8 cores is more than you'll ever need sitting on your lap, 2-4 was the standard in the past for a long time. And 4.8 ghz turbo is amazing. More base ghz and you'll need a fireproof thong to work with it

      640k ram is all you'll ever need.

      Sorry i meant graphics card. That radeon is an embarrassment for a laptop that costs 3k

      What exactly would you need an OP GPU in a MacBook Pro for? Unless CPU throttling for you wasn’t enough I guess you could ask Tim Apple to throw in a RTX2080Ti or Vega 2.

    Should I get the one on the left in the pic above, and pay an extra $400 for 32 gb ram?

      Get the right one AND 32gb if employer's paying

      Used Thinkpad/Macbook for cheap if you're paying

    RAM to improve performance. Faster processor will not be useful for most tasks but RAM will help you keep more than five chrome tabs open. SSD can upgraded if you don’t back files up and delete them from machine very often.

    Just my daily computer. Watch YouTube videos. Occasionally coding. I don’t play any video games or anything.

      I watch sling tv sometimes. I notice on my current computer it’ll make noise when I use sling tv.

      For those purposes you can buy a used Thinkpad X230 for less than $100 on eBay and have it run perfectly smooth still.

    See VIP Outlet dot com. Multiple retailers post their overstocked and refurbished products there. Most computers/laptops there are a steal.

    I just recently bought the 13inch, 256SSD, with the 16GB of RAM. I went for the RAM upgrade since it’s soldered and can’t upgrade on my own like the old MBP.

    I was still rocking my MBP from 2011 until I got this new one.

    Doesn’t seem like you need to upgrade anything right now, but Macs serve you a long time and MacBooks are not officially customizable after sale, so you may eventually regret not upgrading. I would definitely upgrade storage and ram for long term use.
