I not really talking about those who dabble with a rebel etc, more people who are batch developing 200-300 photos in Lightroom , swinging out some tiff files for a return trip to photoshop or cracking open on1 perfect photo for final production edits. So we're talking certainly part time working pro or,full time pro opinions. 'Secondary I am curious for those who use the rmb for ANY video editing. I have a surface pro 3 which I super unhappy with due to the fact it overheats etc. but I can't see taking on a machine that's slower than that. Apple have much faster memory and disk access speeds due to their proprietary tech / soldered on solution which certainly makes up for less,grunt in the processor. However some things are going to be processor and video,card intensive. Mine integrated Intel 5000 in the surface pro is pathetic. But many of the apps,I use work better with integrated graphics in OSX. I'm currently testing the iPad Pro to see if he can feel the niche for mobile editing obviously for batch editing your little limited to a handful of apps and there is really only one I can think of which allows raw dev properly. But editing with a plan whether it's on the surface Pro three or the iPad is a pleasure retouching eyes etc. I think I probably need to get a MacBook Pro but the problem is they only have one model is really substantially better than any of the other computers they offer and it is $3000 and doesn't meet my expectation for a pro machine So,I curious if any used the old rmb for editing and if the new one being 15% faster in processor but 40% in graphics card may work for limited projects away from a desktop machine. That said given the surface pro 3 it's hard to justify $1700 for a ultra mobile unless it performs substantially better which I doubt I'm assuming comparatively the new rmb is not going to be as fast as even last yours surface pro but if it is similar that would be ok.
