Hey guys,

I am looking to buy an eGPU enclosure. I am deciding between Sonnet Breakaway and Akitio Node but I can't really tell which one is better.

I am using a MacBook early 2015.

I will probably use RX 580 and I probably won't upgrade any time soon. 

Any other suggestion is appreciated!  🙂

I haven't used the Node, but I got the Breakaway 550 for several reasons:

 

It's quiet out of the box. Mine is silent. 

It charges the MBP.

It's the one Apple sends with their dev kits.

 

And, you don't mean the 12" MacBook, right?

Should be good with either one.  Price or aesthetics?

Either is fine. I personally like the design of the sonnet, which is why I bought the sonnet breakaway box
