    If you have the money, go for it, but I would suggest looking at B&H Photo for the mid 2014 models. They are hundreds less than your choices, and tax free unless you live in NY or NJ. Free 2 day shipping as well. Your uses have no need for these kind of specs. I have a Late 2013 rMBP, i5, 8, 128 and it easily handles everything I throw at it, including Handbrake. Just a suggestion.

    Even a $300 laptop could do what the OP wants to do.

    Edit: The OP could buy a durable used laptop as well
