I need your help to decide on my next computer, based upon my need to run KeyShot and SolidWorks and the Adobe CC. I definitely will be getting a new MacBook Pro.


I am trying to decide between the 13" and 16". I've listed the specs below, as I have configured them. Would you please offer your best advice? Thanks!


13" MacBook Pro:

2.3GHz quad-core 10th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.1GHz
Intel Iris Plus Graphics
32GB 3733MHz LPDDR4X memory



16" MacBook Pro:

2.6GHz 6‑core 9th‑generation Intel Core i7 processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.5GHz
32GB 2666MHz DDR4 memory
AMD Radeon Pro 5300M with 4GB of GDDR6 memory
