What is the better Macbook?

  richdeniro 21:37 13 Jun 2020

My friends workplace have gone bust and is selling off their old equipment, being in need of a new Macbook I am going to buy one but not being particularly techy wondered if these could be ranked as they each seem to have different specs:

Macbook Pro (2015) 3.1 GHz Intel Duel Core i7 16GB

Macbook Pro (2017) 3.1 GHz Intel Duel Core i5 16GB

Macbook Pro (2019) 2.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 8GB

Thanks in advance.

If 8GB is sufficient get the 2019 model but if not get the 2017. You probably won't notice any difference with the lower spec processor and it will be updatable for longer than the 2015.

I agree the 2019 is the best option depending on what you use the machine for. Any thought of serious video editing or running Windows in a virtual Machine really need more than 8GB of Ram
