    I have late 2013 rMBP in 13".

    Not sure if I'm going backwards if I get rMB.

    I quite like the size, and wish they make rMBP in 12".

    I run CAD on my current rMBP. Would the rMB run CAD as well as Final Cut? Not at the same time.

    The rMB is going to be slower than your late 2013 rMBP.

    The rMB is about the speed of a 2011 MacBook Air. Though you can run CAD on it, it wasn't built for that.

    Stick with the late 2013 13" rMBP. It's still a great Mac and will outperform the rMB for those tasks.

    I have both the late 2013 rMBP 13" and the rMB. The rMBP is faster when it comes to benchmarks. But for my use, both are more than sufficient. I don't render to do much CPU intensive stuff.

    My GPU intensive machine is my Windows rig. 5820K i7, 32GB RAM (yup, 32GB), 980 GTX, 512GB SSD, X99 Mobo, and all those goodies. Reason? Battlefield!

    The chokepoint is the graphics card.

    My macs are for casual stuff, like work and financial stuff. My Windows machine is for serious business, like gaming. :p
