    This probably won't help, since I ended up getting the higher end 15", but played with the base model a crap load at the store. I couldn't get either to slow down whatsoever, so the performance was great at least to me. I'm a spec nerd so I got the higher end - but I honestly couldn't tell a lick of difference (although in games you'd be able to tell obviously). I also got the high end 13" and can't get that thing to slow down either (other than games), so I guess it just depends what you consider high performance. They are both beasts.

    Not sure what you are asking. I have the base model 1999.99 and I have had zero issues.

    It is quick, battery is great. Again not sure what you are asking at this point.

    I'm asking because I tend to use lightroom/photoshop with this computer for the next 4-5 years. I will also have it hooked up on two external screen (23 inch + 27 inch) ...so I'm wondering if it isn't better to just get the version with dgpu!

    I have it, performance is great of course, it runs cool and has great battery life.

    I have LR installed, no issues. I have not hooked it up to an external monitor yet so I can't comment on that. But to be honest the thing is fine, no issues. Fast as can be
