I recently bought a 2012 i7, changed the battery, maxed out the RAM, added a 2 TB SSD and replaced the trackpad and the machine is like new. I’m running Catalina on it and can do full mixes on it and until now it has no problems handling the tasks I throw at it. I was about to invest substantially more on the new 16” Macbook, but reading about the noice problems changed my mind. The 2012 is quiet and costed in total 1/5 of what a similar 2020 model would have cost.
