Premiere Pro CS6 and 15" Retina MacBook Pro

Don't know if this is the correct place for this thread, but here goes...

Anybody running Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 on a 15" Retina Macbook Pro?
If so, how's the performance? What's your exact setup?

Work fine, same bugs when I work off my Mac Pro. Just make sure you use external storage.

I have the 15" retina 2.7 processor 16gb ram and 768gb hard drive.

Cool, thanks for your reply. Yeah, I'm thinking of using one of these for use at my home studio and one of these for work in the field.

I was also wondering about render/export speeds too. I'm trying to decide on wether or not to get a new 27" iMac or the 15" Retina Macbook Pro. Part of that decision making process is balancing the need of portability and the other part is how well Apple and Adobe Pro apps run on those machines. I'm leaning towards the notebook with a Thunderbolt display but I'm hoping they update them soon with USB 3.0.

Ah, good question. I'm working with DSLR footage from T2i's and 60D's. Shooting and editing a new kids TV show airing soon on Baby First. I try to ingest as much as I can in the field and then come to my home studio to edit/finish. Currently on an early 2011 15" Macbook Pro with dual SSD's, 16 gigs of RAM and the AMD Radeon 6750 GPU with 1 gig of vram. Not that it's not sufficient, but could sure use more power for render speeds and exports. I currently use both FCPX and Adobe Premiere Pro for projects. Mostly FCPX for the TV show but every now and then FCPX's bugginess shows itself and is really frustrating.

I like the Prelude/Premiere/After Effects workflow. I have even went the route of ingesting and making subclips in Prelude, rough edit in Premiere Pro, then export XML for FCPX for finishing. That actually seems to the best flow for me right now but again, just really looking for feedback on performance on hardware.

Still looking for feedback. Also trying to decide between getting the 15" rMBP and a Thunderbolt display or go 27" iMac route. I do still have my early '11 15" cMBP as a portable workstation now but that Retina version sure is tempting.
