    I'd really like a new 13" (not a 15") but I want to have support for a 4K display at 60 Hz. Apple may eventually release such a display or I may go third party once I have the cash.

    This page hasn't been updated since the release but looking at the specs of the new 13" it doesn't look promising.

    Considering the new models have exactly the same graphics chip, it will likely have the same result when outputting 4K as the late-2013's.

    The Haswell-U processors do not support 4K at 60 Hz.

    You're not the first person who has asked me this :D

    13" late-2013 rMBP, 2.4/4/128
    This machine was won in a raffle, and is used for only word processing, web browsing, watching movies and light Photoshop.

    13" late-2013 rMBP, 2.8 i7/16/512
    This machine was purchased because the one from the raffle was underpowered for my needs. I use it for running multiple VMs, medium Photoshop work and some video editing.

    15" late-2013 rMBP, 2.6/16/1TB/750M
    This was a birthday gift. I use it for on-site 4K video editing (I'm a freelance photographer and videographer), as well as running multiple VMs and heavy image editing.

    15" early-2011 cMBP, 2.3/16/512GB 840 Pro/1GB 6750M/antiglare display
    This was purchased in 2011 as a desktop replacement, because my old Windows box had given up the ghost. I use this for image editing outdoors (because of the antiglare screen), as well as video editing and running multiple VMs. I like this model better than my 15" rMBP because of the antiglare display. The retina display attracts glare like a solar panel outdoors. It succumbed to Radeongate in March 2014, but a reball fixed it.

    The 2010 17" was passed down from my dad, and is now used as a living room system for guest usage.

    21.5" late-2013 iMac, 3.1 i7/16/256/750M
    This was purchased for my desk, and handles heavy 1080p video editing and heavy Photoshop, running 2 VMs (4GB assigned to each) and some gaming.

    27" late-2013 iMac, 3.5 i7/32/512GB/780M
    This was purchased as a home server, mounted on a VESA mount on the wall. I use this for heavy rendering, 4K video editing and heavy gaming.

    Late-2012 Mac Mini, 2.6 i7/16/1TB FD
    This was originally my bedside PC, used for software development and image editing (yes, I work from my bed on lazy days), but it's now a HTPC connected to the TV in the living room. I still use it for the same purposes.

    2 cylindrical nMPs, both with 12 cores, 64GB RAM, 12GB D700 and 1TB SSD
    These aren't mine, but I use them when they're not being used by my dad. My dad's a physicist, so he uses it for heavy rendering and modelling.

    13" mid-2013 MBA, 1.7 i7/8/512
    This machine is used by my mom, but I don't exactly know what her usage on it is.
