    Hi there!

    So I'm jumping in Macbook pro territory. I just wanted to know if the MBP 13'' will be strong enough for me. I will be using adobe premiere and photoshop for film projects. I'm not going hard on special effects in my movies but they certainly are HD. For gaming I'm playing a little WoW from times to times but that's pretty much it. Is the current MBP 13 the right machine for me?

    Thanks!

    I'd probably consider jumping to a base level 15" for the screen size, speed and graphics card but the 13" would probably be ok

    Said above.
    I recommend low end 15in but with this, high end 13in should suite you fine.

    I think a 15" would do you better because you might need the extra screen real estate, and the dedicated gpu will allow you to play WoW at decent settings

    I agree about the GPU.
    Intel HD 3000 is a horrible graphics card.
    I really suggest you get a AMD Radeon 6750M or 6770M on the 15in.

    Especially for photo/video editing and gaming, I prefer the AMD Radeon.
