re: MacBook from 2011 for Development? VIEW POST


I can’t speak about Macs specifically; however, I’m using a Thinkpad T520 circa 2012: i5-2520m, 16 Gig RAM, m2 SSD, and Linux Mint 18.3. It chugs along still at a respectable pace and really my only complaint is that I’d prefer something a bit more portable. Granted, I’m only using a text editor, terminal, Vagrant box and a web browser much of the time. I imagine my patience with an older machine would be significantly less if I was doing graphics work or wrangling massive amounts of data.
