We had/have some of those 15.1 MBP. Plenty capable machine. In most instances we're swapping them out for M1 MacBook Airs. Pro Tools is usually quite a bit behind supporting the current MacOS version. You won't have an issue with those size sessions.

Update: The 2018 Macbook Pro deal fell through, so I got a 15" 2019 Macbook Pro with the i9 and 32GB RAM. I'll get it in a few days.

2019 i9 Macbook Pro arrived. Very speedy, brand new battery with 0 cycles. I'll be installing software over the new few days, but Harrison Mixbus runs fantastic.

I can confirm the 2019 Macbook Pro i9 w/ 32G RAM and Mojave runs Pro Tools Ultimate 2022.7 amazingly. I have 32 audio tracks with an Orion USB, 16 buses, plus master running on this session. There's the SSL Channel Strip 2 on every track, plus plugins on the buses and master, and HEAT, and I'm at less than 10% CPU.

I'm running SSL 360 app, Decibel wifi to my tablet for metering, and a Presonus Faderport 16, with an HDMI TV for a larger second screen, and it all runs very fast and smooth. I'm happy with the setup. Low buffer of 64 for tracking, 1024 for mixing.

I was considering picking up a chassis for my HDX card, but so far, I don't think I'll need it. Besides, to run the playback engine in HDX I assume would need a compatible interface, and this Orion does not have the AVID connections.

Yes HDX requires DigiLink IO connected to it.
