Currently I'm a sports reporter, so I'm out in the field a lot. I edit a lot of interviews in Final Cut Pro (but nothing taxing) and also take a lot of photos and edit in Lightroom. I have: 2013 27' iMac - 3.2 Quad Core/24gb ram/1TB 7200 rpm/ 1 GB dedicated video 2013 13' Macbook Pro - 2.4 i5 Dual Core/8 GB ram/128 SD But I'm really starting to hate having to worry about syncing files on both computers. I have an offer of $1250 for the iMac. I have a guy wanting to give me $800 cash for my Macbook Pro tomorrow. Currently BHP Photo has a Late 2014 Macbook Pro 15' with 512SSD and 16GB ram for $1799 (no tax and free shipping). Thinking about purchasing it and using the extra money to purchase a monitor when I'm at home. What are your thoughts?
