The Best MacBook Pro In The Market… (January 5, 2019)

img_5828

Older models can be far more superior to newer models in ways that you wouldn’t expect.

…is the question that we would all like to know[i].

With all of the unflattering reports that have emerged regarding more recent models and Apple’s seemingly insatiable need to make their products lighter[ii] each year, I believe the future of the MacBook lies backward and not forward.

Gone are the days wherein one would wait in anticipation for the latest Apple release.  Instead, I invite the user to take a good look at an Apple product they may already own—say a MacBook Pro (13-inch | mid 2010 model).

How to make older…better.

Although 8 ½ years old[iii], the MacBook Pro (mid 2010 model) can easily be brought up to 2019 standards by making the proper Operating System (OS) upgrade and subsequent hardware investments.  First, the OS: El Capitan (Version 10.11.6)—I have come to understand—is the highest OS that this particular model can use without sacrificing speed.  It may also be prudent to max out the physical memory of the unit with two 4 GB chips (8 GB 1067 MHz DDR3) as well as to get a Segate 2 TB FireCuda Hard Drive (Optional).

It’s not exactly top of the line but like a classic spruced up roadsters—this baby will get you where you need to go while looking good in the process[iv].

[iv] If you happen to try out these exact modifications, do let me know how it worked out for you.
