I got 9 years out of an Early 2013 MacBook Pro 15” laptop. It was one of the first Mac notebooks with a Retina Display and a fast solid-state drive. This package performed wonderfully throughout the years but eventually time and newer software made it too slow to use for professional projects. I can’t even begin to estimate how many hours I spent using this machine. It never let me down, always kept running and it still runs to this day. I will miss it, but the replacement, according to reviews, is from the future in terms of sheer performance.
It’s about to get real and really fast!
