    So Apple claims that the integrated graphics on the 13" MBP are significantly better from 6100.
    Would that qualify the 13" for 4k video editing, (some) gaming, etc? Where would you all draw the line for the 13" MBP capabilities with Iris 550?

    Been a long time 15" MBP user - but the portability of the 13" is enticing...

    Unless I am very mistaken, the Iris 550 should be more or less on par (or slightly faster) than the Iris Pro 5200 found in the last-gen 15" MBP. It will certainly handle some 4K video editing and some (light) gaming, but definitely not as well as the 15" version with the AMD GPUs. Although I am not so sure that the difference for video will be that noticeable.
