    Is anyone running Lightroom 4.3 or Photoshop/Premiere Elements 11 on a Retina MBP 13 inch? I use this software now on my i7 860 Windows 7 desktop with 12 Gb memory.

    I really like the size of the 13 inch but because this would be my first Mac, I'm a bit uncertain of the i5 cpu is powerful enough to work with a lot of fun with the rMbp 13. Also some concerns about the screensize of 13 inch for these apps....

    I'm not a pro photographer (just hobby) but like to do edit pictures or creating some holiday movies. I shoot with a Canon 5DmkII which creates 30Mb RAW files or HD movie.

    If you have also other advise which could be important for me, please let me know

    I ran LR4/PS on my old 13" dual core (2010 model) MBP with no problems. I don't think you'll have any issues with the i5

    Agreed. I have the full Master Suite on my 13" rMBP, and while I don't beat on it daily I use it enough fixing my user bases's mistakes that I can say it's never been an issue.

    Now, is it the same as my 15" hooked to a Thunderbolt display? No. The 15" will still power through stuff at a much faster rate.
