Right now I'm trying to decide between getting a 15" Retina or waiting for the top level 27" iMac. I'm a student film maker and I do a lot of work with Final Cut, Premiere and After Effects. Would the Macbook be able to handle this kind of work load? How much more powerful would the iMac be? Being a student, portability is important. But being a film maker, power is just as important. If I were to get a Macbook, it would be BTO. 16gb memory 2.6ghz quad core i7 256gb SDD So what do you guys think? If you were in my position, do you think it would be better to wait for the upper level iMac or get a Macbook?
