    Hi guys!

    There is a serious question of choice.
    Macbook Pro 13 "2014 (MGX92) in the maximum factory configuration, 512 GB SSD and a 2.8 GHz processor against the Macbook Pro 13" 2015 (MF839) in a minimal configuration, but with a Force Touch, a newer processor, video, and faster SSD, but only 128 GB.

    Both brand new, at a price not really a difference, 2015 costs $ 40 more. 2014 is cheaper (not critical), with a larger SSD capacity, faster processor (2,8 GHz vs 2,7GHz at 2015 model) despite 4 generation.

    For the price of 2014 - $ 1280, 2015 - 1320.

    What will you advice ?

    Thanks in advance for everyone, as it is rather difficult to decide.

    Welcome to iMore.

    I would go with the maxed out 2014. You are getting a far better machine over the 2015. You will never need to worry about storage and the machine will be able to do anything you throw at it. It will still last you several years if you need it too!

    Another option: buy 128 GB SSD 2015 model + to buy separately Jetdrive Lite SD card (special for Macbook) (up to 256 GB, so as not to clutter up SSD, movies, photos and others).
    As for the processors in the 2014 model - Haswell 2.8 GHz Intel "Core i5" processor (4308U)
    In 2015 - Broadwell Intel Core i5-5257U 2.7 GHz, the integrated graphics are better, Intel Iris HD 6100 versus Intel Iris HD 5100 in 2014. The newer supports output in 4K 60Hz, the old one is not.

    You can always go with an external drive as well with the 2015. It all depends on what you will be using the machine for. If you are the average user I still recommend the 2014. If you are rendering videos then I recommend the 2015 with a good external drive. I personally would stay away from SD cards for storage. You are far better with an actual external drive. There are many good ones out there that are very reasonably priced.
