my Macbook Pro mid-2011 is running like a well-oiled, uh, laptop. And it's fast enough for my needs.
Apple replaced the motherboard last year for free because of a known defect in that generation of MBP's. So it's pretty much a 1-year old laptop.
My only reason to get a new one is, that this one is fixed to standard HD resolution. So using an external retina screen is not really an option.
Should i worry about upgrading? I mean, is using standard HD definition a problem for graphic design in 2018?
Think I'm having the opposite problem. I went from a non-Retina 2013 27" iMac to a new iMacPro, which is 5k res. It looks great on my end but there's no noticeable anti-aliasing on anything and I won't be able to fix that kind of stuff for non-Retina users. I'd say for web-related work or things you're trying to make pixel-perfect, it's a problem to have Retina.
jagara, that story almost made me want to get a mac.
they replaced the motherboard for you on a 6 year old laptop??
This 5K monitor makes every image look so teeny, then when the browser has to resize it to fill the space, grainy noise. meh.
Display is cool but if you have an i7 already updated to 16GB RAM + SSD, you won't notice much perfomance boost. New MacBooks are slow as fuck.
