Hello! Having recently landed myself a job and my birthday fast approaching, I'm trying to decide what I want to buy. I'm now in a far greater position to afford a Retina MacBook Pro but my budget still only stretches as far as a 13". I've been using a custom built PC which I built for myself about a year ago with the use of games and Photoshop in mind. It now seems I'm mostly using it for general web browsing but still using Lightroom normally which consists of using it about 4 times a month max to process my DSLR shots. So photography certainly isn't a way of income at the minute, it's mainly for my own artistic pleasure and for my visual media A-Level. Plus Windows is getting tired and tedious, being a user of iPad and iPhone I feel I'm missing out on Mac. My question today is, would the base model 13" rMBP with the i7 processor (approx £1,330 w/edupricing) be enough for my Photoshop needs? I rarely use the full version of Photoshop and mainly stay within Lightroom. Would the dual core processor be enough to process 16MP files smoothly? Is 8GB of RAM enough for my needs? Will I have any issues with the recent problems of the HD 4000 graphics struggling with the Retina display? Are there any image retention problems in the 13" just like in the 15"? Maybe some of those questions only I can answer, but I was hoping to get some advice from the pros of MacRumors as to whether this would be a good investment.
