I am retiring the good old MacBook Pro after seven years. I never had any problem with it until I upgraded to Mojave about six months ago. It took a long time to start up and crashed Adobe products as well as Microsoft Words. It slows down my production; therefore, I had to let it go.
I am starting fresh with a new MacBook Pro instead of migration over from the old laptop. It gave me the opportunity to clean up all the junks. I migrated email accounts, which were easy, and finally upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud. I mainly use Photoshop and Illustrator. In addition, I just need to download a dozen of apps. That’s pretty much it. The process took the entire work day.
I am now rocking on a new MacBook Pro, which I hope to last me seven more years or so.
