    Hey all,

    I've been working off my desktop for the past few years, and now I have enough saved up to buy a decent laptop, and I'm just wondering what you would suggest.

    I am in the videography business, I edit 4K video using Premiere Pro, and I also use After Effects, Photoshop, basically the entire Adobe Suite. Just wondering which one of the two would be the better purchase.


    I run all my footage off external hard drives, so the storage space isn't a huge issue for me. I would really like the bigger screen, but if the 13" is a lot faster, I'd rather have that and save some time, as I have an external monitor I can hook up to.

    I'm currently working off a 2011 21.5" iMac, 2.7 GHz i5, 16 GB RAM, and AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB Graphics.

    Thoughts? Questions? Thanks!

    The quad core processor and the IRIS Pro graphics are a much better fit for your use case, 15 inch all the way, it benchmarks nearly 2 x as fast in both CPU and GPU.
