Hello everyone, I've been the proud owner of a late 2012 Mac Mini with 2.3 quad core i7 16GB of Ram and a 256GB SSD for about a year now. Around December of last year I also picked up my first Macbook Pro, a mid 2012 13" retina version with 2.5 dual core i5 and 8gb ram with a 128GB SSD. I have the mini connected to a Thunderbolt display and I absolutely love both machines. I am a photographer and I do most of my main photo editing on the Mini and I use the rMBP when I travel and just for casual web surfing and whatever. My problem is that lately I find myself doing way more photo editing on my rMBP just because I love the screen and it's convenient to sit on the couch and work on stuff instead of going in to the office. While I love the 13" rMBP for it's portability, it is a bit underpowered for what I do. It's ok in Lightroom but once I move to Photoshop CC and start using multiple layers and plugins it really starts to show it's weakness in the processor department. I've been thinking lately of selling both machines and picking up a refurb 15" rMBP with 2.3 quad core i7, 16GB ram and at least a 256 SSD and preferably the 650M dedicated GPU. I would keep my Thunderbolt display that way when I want to do heavy editing I can just plug the rMBP in to the display and go to town and when I want to be mobile I can just unplug and work from the couch or on the road. This gives me the same processing power that I currently have in the Mini with the ability to go mobile plus the advantages of the dedicated GPU. I think I can get just enough out of the two machines to cover the one 15" rMBP if I shop around, I'm just wondering if this is a good idea? It does scare me a little to only have one machine in case something happened to it whether it breaks, gets stolen or who knows what. Is there any other downsides you can think of that may make me reconsider this move? I know the 15" isn't nearly as portable as the 13" but I think I can live with that aspect. I was also curious how the 2.0ghz quad core i7 stacks up against the current 2.3 in my mini? I know the Haswell is slightly faster and offers better battery life, but I also know that would mean I would have to skip the dedicated GPU and go with the Iris Pro, again not a huge deal but I would like the dedicated GPU to be able to game every now and then. Thanks for any help and advice in advance.
