I just need to be talked down from the ledge... Currently have a 2010 MBP 15". I love it and only wish it had one extra mini displayport. I tried a USB monitor solution for more than a year but it was laggy and then lost support in Mountain Lion. I need a portable system to bring between two office setups, a home studio, and teaching gigs once a week. When I'm at an office, I am seeking to run more than one external monitor. That's the only real problem I'm trying to solve with a new laptop purchase. On my Mac I use Use Adobe CS5 and CS6 (Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, AE), Office Apps, a little Rhino and Keyshot, Sketchbook and hopefully Autodesk Maya and ZBrush soon. But 98% of my work is 2D adobe work. If I win the lottery I will buy a Cintiq HD Touch 24" and get my drawing chops back up. The rMBP15 is an insane powerhouse that can power enough. Adobe has updated photoshop and illustrator (though CS6 is a bulky palletted mess), which means I can update without worry. Updating to the rMBP 15 makes sense right? It's noticeably slimmer and lighter than my current unit. But the 13 is so portable ... I just worry about the lack of GPU. But I wonder if I will even notice the lack of it. Seems like Adobe benefits from a good GPU but it's not really using it. If it means that some renders in keyshot are slower, I can handle that. * (forgot to mention that I often have a brick of a work-provided crap dell in my bag most times as well.) I do enjoy gaming but I'm a console man. It would be nice to have the option to run the next installment of Starcraft II. But my laptop is mostly for work. I can wait but I don't think things are going to change. Everything is so kludgy now, I worry that it still will be even with an rMBP... because I probably won't buy new monitors immediately, which will be even more kludgy because I'll have to buy multiple TB>Ethernet adapters to access networks. If this post offends anyone's sensibilities, sorry. I've just had a hell of a time knowing how to spend my money (all to get one extra display port working). I'm honestly not trolling or trying to start flame wars. Would love to know any experience or honest assessment of what I should do to have 2-3 years of less kludge.
