    How to identify MacBook Pro models

    It's a Mid-2014 model, released July 29, 2014. Yes, it's the latest model. There was no Late-2014 MBP.

    Yes.

    But not the maxed out one either.

    The 2.5GHz and 2.8GHz variants have an NVIDIA GPU.

    Unless your uses mean maxing out the CPU at all times, you'd be hard pressed to even notice a difference.

    The first number in the model identifier tells you the generation. A little googling will lead you to a wikipedia page regarding macbook pros, or on everymac.com and will tell you if you have the latest model or not.

    its really mainly a mobile recording rig/ occasional photoshop.... its replacing a 2011 macbook pro i7 8gb with nvidia car(forgot what version) in which i spilled Hennessy in lol. it was cheaper replacing and surprisingly this retina out benched it.
