Re: MacBook Pro question

Hey there, CMP,


You've got some great questions! Let's start with the processor differences. 


The new M1 Chip MacBooks are fantastic and offer a lot of great benefits, especially around battery life! However, please do some research into all of the programs you intend to use, as not all programs can currently run natively with the M1 chips. If this is the case for you, we would advise going with the Intel chip. 


In regards to your needed ram and storage, that will also come down to your individual usage. Code itself is often very small and doesn't require much storage but things like video tutorials, many different programs, etc. begin to add up and may warrant more storage. 


Please let us know if you have any additional questions!
