    Hey I was wondering if you could tell me if this is a good macbook pro for graphic designing and regular use

    'Core i7" 2.6 15-Inch Dual Graphics - Late 2013 Retina Display) features a 2.6 GHz Intel "Core i7" processor (4960HQ), with four independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 6 MB shared level 3 cache, 16 GB of onboard 1600 MHz DDR3L SDRAM which cannot be upgraded later 512 GB of PCIe-based flash storage, and dual graphics processors -- a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory and an integrated Intel Iris 5200 Pro graphics processor with 128 MB of "Crystalwell" embedded DRAM (and shared system memory). It also has an integrated 720p FaceTime HD webcam and a high-resolution LED-backlit 15.4" widescreen 2880x1800 (220 ppi) "Retina" display in a case that weighs just less than 4.5 pounds (2.02 kg). It does not have an internal optical drive.'

    It's a really good system. I've a 15" with 2.6/16/1TB/750M and it runs Autocad and Maya really smoothly, thanks to the 750M.

    Your golden.

    If you don't have any already, down the line you might want to consider some externals. HDD, monitor, mouse especially.. But speaking purely about the system you should be able to run most programs you're planning on using with ease.

    Mac Book pro

    I'm pretty sure, any 2011-2014 Mac Book Pro's are pretty much good for graphic design. I have my new late 2013 retina MBP and I really think my graphic design softwares, are just too easy for the MBP
