$500 Off a MacBook Pro Faster than the One I Use for My Professional Photography Field Trips

There is always the “gotta have the fastest syndrome”, and I am often asked what kind of latpop or desktop to get for photographers. So here’s some perspective on real-world considerations that can save you a lot of money.

B&H Photo has $500 off on the Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro Retina 16GB / 512GB (Mid 2014) 21% / $500 off. Or, view all Apple computer and iPad deals.

This is a very nice laptop suitable even for high-end use. Its flash drive is not as fast as the latest 2015 model, but it’s faster than the 2013 model I use myself for my professional photography. And it’s $500 less costly than the equivalent 2015 model. If money is not an issue, by all means go with the 16GB / 1TB / 2.8 GHz 2015 model.

But to make the point: I’m finding my older and slower late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina 16GB / 512GB ample on a speed basis. My only serious incentive to upgrade is running short on internal drive capacity, as I occassionally need slightly more than 512GB for my photo trips (once home, the drive is offloaded to main storage, and that space becomes free again).
