Hey all, Sorry for yet another silly topic, but I'm really curious about this issue. In September, I will be buying my first Mac, it will probbably be Macbook Pro 13 Retina (2.7/8gb/128ssd). I have no issue with disk space, only RAM. My daily usage: - Photoshop (web design, working on 20-100MB files, but at times 300MB of files open) - Chrome (1-10 tabs) - possible switch to Safari - Skype - Sublime Text 3 What I will do 1/2 times per month: - edit simple, 2-3 min videos - light photo edit (really light) - light After Effects usage (flat animations, really light) My Current computer: - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz - ASUS P5Q-L Pro - 8Gb DDR2 800MHz - 256Gb HDD - Ati Radeon HD 4670 I need to say, that with all those programs open (300Mb in Photoshop) + Youtube 1080p playing + True Detective 1080p playing, I can only keep 80% of RAM busy, so approx. 7GB. But with normal use, I will never use more than 5.5GB of RAM. Does everything stated above like a champ. The system never laggs. The bottleneck (though I dont notice in RL) is CPU. I have no idea what kind of difference the OS will make in terms of RAM usage. My guess is, that - 8GB 1866MHz DDR3 is quite better than 8GB 800MHz DDR2 - SSD will make a lot of difference even though I have no troubles with HDD except for slow boot up and data transfer But still, I am sceptical if 8GB for rMBP will be enough for my tasks. Futureproofing is not something I'm really bothered about. What do you think?
