    This is what I'm thinking will do the trick.

    21.5" LED Display 1920 x 1080 resolution
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M (512MB GDDR5 Memory)
    3.1GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz
    16GB (2x8GB Apple) 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
    1TB Fusion Drive

    Anyone differ on the thoughts and why please?

    It'll work, but having a higher spec'd GPU will definitely come in handy for certain rendering times in both AE & PP.

    Highly software dependent I believe - some off load to the gpu and others are way more cpu intensive.

    Would you expand on your comment please?

    Hi

    Yeah, I thought of that also but I would have to purchase the top of the line 27" to get the improved GPU AND the i7

    Really getting the screw job by apple

    Pre rendering in PP does rely heavily on CPU, but the GPU does play a key role as well.
    AE relies on RAM preview, but again, the GPU also plays a key role. Just know that GPU helps both the CPU & RAM in many rendering intensive tasks for both video and high mega pixel photos.
