So now I ordered a MacBook pro with a i7 processor, a 500GB SSD and 8MB of RAM.
Meanwhile, I got an SSD for my iMac also. That will probably change the way I work remarkably.

Why not Windows? People I trust told me that for an old geezer who's been on Mac since 1989. Windows would give a bleeding ulcer.  Two people who actually earn their licving from IT business told me that in the case of needing a Win application for whatever reason, they'd somehow make my Mac chew Windows data like that, no problem.

Today I learned hot to date your Canon lenses. Oops. And mine.

JUST TAKE PICTURES. Ok so your lens was ten years old when you bought it. Does it take pictures you like (yes).
So what is the problem? the problem is that nobody wants to buy the version 1.0 lenses when the version 2.0 has been out for a while. What to do?

–Take pictures.  Like you did before. That's what the lenses are for. THough I have to admit that the next time before I buys a Canon lens on the Net I want to have the production number before I click on GayPal...
I think you did a great choice. I revamped my MacBook Pro 2012 with 2x8GB RAM memory and new SSD 500Gb and it rocks...

Yeah, the machinery is all very fine but nothing beats the portability of the MBook Air.
With the experience I have now, I woud have gotten the MBA with lesser specs.

Just debating the latest offer from B&H - save $1000 off the top retina MBP (admittedly 2016 model), 2TB SSD & 16GB Ram...

... but I already have this in my 2011 MBP17! I would only gain the faster CPU, and knowledge of a 3-year warranty. I bought this machine as an Apple refurb in 2013, before the last of the 17s disappeared. I would not trade the 17 for a retina 15, if I had a choice (old pair of eyes).

I've upgrade the HDD 3 times for a new SSD (480, 1TB, 2TB), and the optical swapped out for another 1TB HDD.

I'll try and keep it going for another two years? But still twitching at that offer...

I'm also still using a 2011 MBP 17, with a 1 TB SSD – still running fine. 

I also have a mid-2017 15" retina MBP (almost identical to the late-2016, just slightly upgraded processor and architecture).  The latter is definitely a nice machine, honestly, for my typical uses there's just not a huge difference.

I love my late 2013 15" MBP Retina, 2.3 i7 with 16GB RAM & Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB but boy, when I run LR, it sure gets toasty. Speed isn't affected but I have a feeling something is going to fry one day.
 
Who Cares! Shoot with a 75 year old camera, if you got chops, it will be great!
