I’m looking to replace my Surface Pro 3 that I’ve had for 5 years and am going to go the Mac route this time.  Does anyone have one of the new 16 inch MacBook Pros? What configuration do you have and how does L8 run on it?  What else do you run while using Logos and how well does the laptop handle it?  Do you like your laptop?

Has anyone purchased a 2019 MacBook Air and if so how does L8 work on it?  How do you like your machine?  What else do you run while using Logos and how well does the laptop handle it?

I’m leaning towards the 16 inch MacBook Pro but I don‘t want to ignore the Air if it will give me 5+ years of reliability and L8 and future versions will run solidly on it over that time.  With the 16 inch pro one can upgrade to 32 or 64 gb of ram but the 64 upgrade price is too high in my opinion.  Is the 32gb upgrade really worth it or should 16 be sufficient for L8 and beyond for next 5+ years if I go with the 16 inch pro?

Thank you and Lord bless!

I run Logos on a 2019 Macbook Air. It runs fine. It is not quite as snappy as my iMac, but it is fine for out of the office use. I usually have one or more MS Office programs open at the same time; at least Outlook. Very often I have Chrome open as well. Mine does have 16gb of Ram rather than the stock 8gb.

Logos is not likely to get quicker with version 9, so I would get the Macbook Pro, 1T drive, 64G ram if you can.

I got a 16" 2.4 8core i9, 32gb ram, with 8gb graphics card. This thing runs everything I have tried to throw at it easily. Logos is great. I don't think the graphics card upgrade is really needed for Logos though.

Scott, if you haven't yet seen them, the present official recommended specs for Logos may be worth consulting; my guess is that over time those will go up--as will the official minimum specs, which I expect will trend in the direction of the present recommended specs over the new five years and likely surpass them in certain respects.
