I tried to install RAM myself with my old MBP but couldn't get it to work. It turned out the contacts were corroded...

I took everything incl. a new SSD to my local Apple Centre and they installed it in no time.

Good luck!

I am also struggling between two 15 inch macbook pro

One is Mid 2015 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 16GB 256GB and another is Mid 2014 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 16GB 256GB (Refurb)

It seems the performance is similar according to Geekbench.
The Refurb one is around $150 USD cheaper.
Don't know if the faster SSD and force touch trackpad worth that amount...

Will they be much more expensive ?

I was going to pull the trigger on a new MBP in the next month, but was wondering if it's better to wait after reading this.
I'm waiting for the Skylake refreshed MBP.

Cool. I've been finding out all the benefits of Skylake and I might just have to as well. It seems like a nice jump in quality that will be worth the wait.

My current MBP (an 08') is heavy as a brick and sounds like a jet engine taking off.

Saw a really good deal on a 15" the other day ($1500 for the first one you specced) and I'd imagine you might be able to find some good ones in the coming months / Black Friday, so you've definitely got options...
i just saw the new macbook and it has no ports for audio engineering. there's only the usb-c.

i mean... what are we supposed to do? this computer certainly won't work for me.. albeit that it would be awesome to go fanless and so powerful.


i'm reconsidering apples altogether at this point.

The macbook also has a very weak processor, simply it's designed for "pro" applications, period. That's why there are "macbook pros".

I apologize. I was discussing the MBP and just left off the pro. I don't know anyone actually using a MacBook for audio. The point remains,.., that in order to produce on the MBP now,.. you invariable have to use an adapter hub. It seems this can cause latency issues right? That was the point of those old unibody was... just plug in at the port on the computer and spreed along. I just feel frustrated that another connection needs to take some quality away.
