Hi I need to buy a new macbook pro and I want to get the 13 inch without touch bar.


I can only afford to upgrade one specification and I want to know would it be better to go for 2.4GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz or 16GB 1866MHz memory.


I have a mid 2010 macbook pro at the moment on 4GB with 2.4 GHz Intel Core i5 and my FM database has about 500K records.


When I search especially doing a keyword search with two terms in speech marks the search can take 5 mins.


I want to get the upgraded specification that will give me the quickest searching/find speed for my FM database.


I only really use my macbook pro for FM so this is the only concern, getting the best specification I can afford for FM to run better than it runs now.
