I ended up finding a base 15 inch Retina MBP at a local Best Buy store. Ironically none of the Apple stores had them in stock, but I feel like they were lying.:roll eyes: Anyhow, this machine comes with the Intel HD4000 and an Nvidia GPU correct? When I go to about this mac it only shows the Intel GPU and not the Nvidia. Does the Nvidia GPU kick in when the power is needed? I've never owned a machine that had 2 different GPUs so I'm a little curious about this. The base model only has 8GB of RAM which has me a little worried. I do a lot of video work in FCP X and am wondering if the 8GB is enough. I'm not going to do a whole lot of multitasking between programs like Photoshop, FCP X, Apeture, etc. I just want to make sure that in operation and exporting the machine is fast. My iMac is slow as hell because it has a hard drive in it but with the SSD the RMBP should be quite a bit faster.
