Good morning. I've been using an iMac for post over the past few years. I love it.
I've been considering switching to a new mbp to gain portability. I believe portability would improve my life quite a bit for various reasons. Will the new i7 2.7 be > than the old i3 3.2 with regard to pp speed - clone, blemish removal, etc... that is the only area where I've had any slowness in the past, back when I was running 8gb ram. 5d mark iii files are fairly large. I am only using LR4 at the time, but could switch to more robust software at any time.
I do realize that having a larger monitor is fantastic for post. So moving to a 15" screen is going to take some time to get used to. But I'm willing to sacrifice monitor size for portability. And eventually I could run an external monitor for more serious pp sessions.
I don't build computers or understand the hardware much. So thx for any input.
