My use case is scanning in, OCR and then classifying large quantities. I’m a new user to DT and using my 2015 MacBook 12” is a pretty slow experience when loading 30 page docs I’ve scanned (using a folder action if that makes any difference). I will of course use it for other things too, but if the base model will fly through this particular task I will save myself some pennies. Welcome your thoughts! Thanks.
As macOS requires more RAM each year (and databases grow too) and as the new computer should probably last for quite a few years, I usually recommend to get as much RAM as possible in case of M1/M2 machines as it can’t be upgraded anymore.
