I am in the market for a 2018 MacBook Pro 13”. My wife will be getting my current 2017 MacBook Pro same size. I have already decided to consider 16 GBs for RAM, however I am undecided to pay for the extra CPU processor from i5 to i7.
I do not edit video or music; my use consists on managing email, slack, presentations, manage my photo album, excel (sometimes heavy) etc. Sometimes I play games but it is not my main interest. The 2017 MacBook has the i7 processor and handed my work perfectly.
I know the CPU was seriously updated from 2017 to 2018. I am not sure if an i5 of 2018 is better or same performance than an i7 from 2017. If the user experience is the same, then I can save the money. What do you think? Is it worth to pay for the i7 on the 2018’s MacBook Pro?
