I'm thinking that no one else is having the same issues with Apples current lineup as I am? I have, and need two computers, one for the road and one for my office. I'm a travelling (not travel-) photographer, so I mainly use Lightroom, Photoshop, other Adobeapps, and some FCX. Along with the normal suite of day-to-day-work. The laptop has to be MBA, so thats already taken care of (even though I'm not happy with the latest iteration, 2012 vs my old 2011). I upgraded my Mac Pro 1,1 to a Mac Mini 2011, mid-model, with the SSD-treatment, and that has worked for a while. I waited eagerly for the new 2012 Mini, but I'm not happy with the lack of GPU, since the HD4000 in my i7 MBA is buggy and unreliable, even compared to the HD3000 of the 2011 MBA I had before. The Mini obviously has problems with the HD4000 or the HDMI-hardware, and I need to use two monitors. And the Mac Pro, albeit still is quite good, it feels wrong investing in 2-3 year old hardware that both lacks a lot of modern features and relative performance over the latest gen Intelchips. It will also probably be replaced soon or dropped completely, wich makes for an even worse deal in buying one at it's current value. The iMac is a no-go, i would have to sell my two 24" Eizo monitors for a 27" model to go with the 27" iMac. Seems like a hassle. And the new version apparently isn't upgradeable, and I don't like to pay the Apple premium for their SSD/Fusiondrive. And most of all I don't like the display. Then we end up with the MacBooks. The MBP Classic would have been good enough probably, but it only natively supports one external monitor. The 15" Retina appears to be the closest match to what I'm looking for - latest gen Intel CPU, discrete graphics good enough to drive my two monitors and the HDMI/TB-connections to use them, no reported graphics bugs, USB3 and some other goodies. The only issue is that my planned desktop, is a laptop... Have I missed something in Apples lineup or is the MBPR what suits me best? Is anyone using the Retina strictly as a desktop. Any issues?
