    Guys,
    my wife is going to buy a new MBP retana on Friday and it comes with 8gb ram, with that be enough ram to run Lightroom 4 and edit a few pictures every now and then. The cost of this MBPR is B94.900.00

    I run PS CS6, LR4 and PM5 without any problems, so 8gb ram should be fine

    I take it the Retena screen is the best for picture editing, I read somewhere that they do a no reflection screen as well is that correct

    yes, the classic mbp has an upgrade option of a high-res antiglare screen for $90 more.

    Bear in mind Adobe haven't released a retina-enabled update for Photoshop CS6 yet, so everything looks a bit blurry at the moment. It's fine for occasional spot changes, but I still use my Mac Pro with monitor for intensive work.

    For most things 8GB is fine.

    From time to time I work with pictures that require a lot more 8GB of RAM and 16GB does help. Usually 16GB isn't enough for these tasks either. :eek:
