I've been using my Mac Pro for 5 years now and it is still beast (Apple, you're amazing!). However, I have zero portability and it is starting to be an issue. That is why I want to get a MBP. It has be powerful so that I can use it as my main computer (with my 2 monitors) for the next 5 years. The price tag is high at $2,600. So, I am wondering if I should get the previous model (early 2013). Looking at Geekbench, the price of about $550 is much higher than the difference in scores. Multi-Core Geekbench average score: Early 2013: 10,613 Late 2013: 12,146 Difference of: ~1,533 Based on my research most of this difference in score comes from the video card. It seems to be faster at encoding videos and has a higher FPS in video games (although by not that much in some cases). I am not a big gamer and rarely do any video editing work. I am asking, am I missing something? Why pay so much extra money?
