    Hello everyone,

    I need a computer that can handle CS6,Logic Pro, Boot Camp (FL Studio), Final Cut pro rendering, compressing and some casual gaming as WoW,Dota2,SC2 and CS;GO.

    I have a Mac Pro from 2010 but now i need a MacBook Pro to be able to have it with me when i'm traveling, It needs to be powerful but not with all high specs.
    So is the $2,599.00 base version enough?

    2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
    Turbo Boost up to 3.5GHz
    16GB 1600MHz memory
    512GB PCIe-based flash storage 1
    Intel Iris Pro Graphics
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M
    with 2GB GDDR5 memory
    Built-in battery (8 hours)2

    All around the world.
    If it's any help, I just purchased a rMBP 15, maxed out 2.6ghz, 16gb ram, 1tb ssd.

    I runs all the logic sessions my old 2009 Mac Pro nehalem octo 2.27.

    I love it.

    The model you listed would be plenty enough for your needs.

    I've had the $2,599 base version for a couple of weeks now. I do a lot of heavy graphics design in Illustrator and Photoshop and the occasional video editing in Adobe Premiere. I haven't tried installing Windows through Bootcamp yet, but running OSX it's blazingly fast. Highly recommended :D
