Hi all, first post After years using PCs, I'm seriously considering the jump to Mac. I'm looking at an MBP as I need something that's portable. I'll be using it for work (I'm self-employed) and also for photo processing (Lightroom, Photoshop) as I'm going to branching out into professional photography. I was considering picking up a 15in MBP Retina with 16GB RAM and 512GB HD from the Apple refurb store. However, a Mac enthusiast colleague has recommended I consider a cheaper option for now, as lower spec models should be more than capable of doing what I need. However, I don't want to be caught in the same position I have been with PCs, which have required replacing every three to four years. Anyway, I'd be interested to have the benefit of the experience of any Mac-using photographers. Thank you!
