Mbp m1 or mbp 2019

What do you think I will get?

M1 and buy this usb hub


Macbook pro 2019 and buy 2pcs thunderbolt3 to usb adaptor
Since it has 4 usb c ports

Btw it is both 2nd hand and at the same price.

What will I choose?

Mostly I need 3 usb port:

1 for charger
1 for camera card reader / audio card reader
1 for external hdd

I will use it for data wrangling works like transfering big files and for viewing recorded files mostly 4k and 6k resolution

Not enough information to judge.

  • Screen size of 2019 MBP?
  • RAM of both
  • SSD size of both
  • Do you have software that won’t run on an M1 or Big Sur? Do you want to run software that only runs on an M1?

How long do you plan to use the computer?

Just a reminder that many people in many posts on this forum have been astounded at how much better their new M1 MacBook Air is over any other Mac they have ever owned.*
