Right now I have two laptops that I work on. One mostly for home and one mostly for travel (2x/month minimum) Home - 15" 2013 Retina Macbook Pro, 512GB SSD, 16GB Ram, 2GB 750m Road - 13" 2015 Retina Macbook Pro, 256GB SSD, 8GB Ram, Intel 6100 After a few months, I am finding it a bit of a hassle to bounce back and forth between these especially when working on longer projects. Drop box has helped. But I am wondering if a 2015 13" Macbook Pro with 512GB SSD and 16GB of Ram would be just right? I edit a few hours of video a week in Premiere, but it is mostly just chopping it up and adding titles then exporting a 720p file and then making smaller versions with handbreak. I sometimes use Final Cut for shorter 5-10 minute videos with some extra effects. The big issues with the current 13" rMPB is that while encoding video it is super sluggish. I am guessing that the 16GB of ram would help with that? Also if price isn't a factor, should I go with the i7 in the maxed out 13" rMBP? Just worried about heat and battery life when doing non intensive work. I hate how hot my 15" always is. Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
