The relevance of the Macbook Pro 13 (late 2013) to 2019?

All kind time of day! Going to get Macbook Pro 13 2013 on the secondary market. Need to study, in particular the maintenance of electronic notes, and simple household tasks. Plans to take 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Choosing between Air and Pro, but still the Retina display took its toll.
So, will there be enough of his power for everyday tasks (and possibly programming)? Will this laptop? If so, for how long?

Solution
For the described task enough. Importantly, the internal drive was an SSD and in good condition.
The RAM might want to expand as much as possible. 13 inch screen, in my opinion, too small. Better 15". But you can connect an external monitor.

Use including prošek 2008 to 2011 for music and programming, both replaced the drives on the SSD, RAM to the maximum (4 and 16) – quite the workhorses.

An important limitation of the hardware – the latest version of OS X that will turn on them to install. For example, MBP 2008's El Capitan, for the 2011 High Sierra. More new OS X they will not rise.
Does it make sense to look towards the 2015 model? - Eldon_Schneider commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:43
IMHO not as important as the model and year, like screen size, RAM, and disk. And the speed of the drive.
CPU limitations you can feel of, say, 3D rendering, or rendering complex effects in AfterEffects, video compression,. As I understood from the question, it is not included in the plans. - manuel commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:46
Another limitation of the "iron" – the latest version of OS X that will turn on them to install. For example, MBP 2008's El Capitan, for the 2011 High Siera. More new OS X they will not rise.

Find out what the latest OS will be on beeches who are going to buy. - manuel commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:49
@manuel, Where can I see this information (about compatibility of OS and model)? - Eldon_Schneider commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:52
At most this! Is the latest version of axis!!!! - Mac.Da commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:55
@Eldon_Schneider, it is written in the System Requirements for the next version of OS X.
Mojave can be placed. - manuel commented on March 23rd 20 at 19:58

I have a late 2013 8/256. Enough for everything. I am a developer. The unit is fully satisfied, do not plan to change at least a couple of years.

I now got a late 2011 17" and it is enough for all tasks.
