I'd rather 16gb/256 SSD over 8gb/512 SSD.

8gb ddr3 nonexpendable ram for a 2020 laptop is a total ripoff.

I know there’s more than just the number but I can’t get over a processor speed of 1.4 ghz in 2020, especially for a normal price of $1499. My 12 inch PowerBook G4 was 1.0 ghz in 2003, single core with a 133 MHz system bus ? To clarify, I’m just talking about the literal GHz number and making a joke about with the comparison..

Note: Only the 2.0 GHz+ models are 10th gen Intel processors. The others are 8th gen.

I just got my 13", 2.0 GHz, 16GB, 512GB in last week. I bought it a few weeks ago for $1799 from Apple. I consider it to be a good deal. 16GB of RAM by default is great, turbo up to 3.8GHz is also great.

I alredy put it to the test at processing the ~200 RAW files I shot with my Nikon this weekend in Lightroom. It kicked major ass.

Note: HD size means nothing to me, everything is in cloud storage. My photos are in Creative Cloud or iCloud, and my documents are in iCloud. I only need enough local disk to cache what I'm working on right now - and accept the newest dump of photos. 512GB is more than enough for that.

For those worried about 1.4GHz... you really need to look at the turbo-boost numbers. That 1.4 turbos to 3.9GHz. The 1.7GHz turbos to 4.5GHz (!).

In the old days processors mostly used their base clock and would only rarely run above that. These days, if there is work to do, it is extremely rare for a processor to go down to its base clock. Use Intel Power Gadget to watch what the clock frequency is doing over time.

I have an 8 core 16" MBP for work - it has a base clock of 2.4GHz and turbos to 5GHz. When doing anything it never goes below 4GHz. And that's pushing all 16 threads hard. If I'm only using one processor it will happily sit at about 4.5GHz.

I haven't tested my 13" MBP - but I will soon.
