Ah, but had you waited till the HD4000 GT comes out next year......

It would be completely unnecessary. ;)


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

I have a 2012 air that has 4GB ram and a 2.7 processor. I used a LR4 a few times and it did fine for the occasional edit. I actually prefer ACR for just editing a file or two...I have the same setup iMac in the office and an air for travel.

If money isn't a concern, I would just get the RMBP with lots of ram. Better screen, more storage, more RAM, basically the same size....

EDIT:
I wish a had a 2.7 processor....its actually a 1.8....

I currently have a 2011 refurbished MBA. 11", 4GB ram, 128GM HDD and 1.6 Ghz Core i5. I've had it for almost a year now (was a birthday present to myself), and it BLOWS away the old Window's based laptops I was using. About 6 months ago I got LR 4 (updated to 4.2) and a couple weeks ago bought PSE 11 after running a 30 day trial of PSE 10.

My current workflow is to only have the images I'm culling and editing on my MBA, after that process they get moved off onto my network storage. The only quirks I've noticed is that after going through a bunch of photos the fans kick into overdrive. Granted a MBP would have been nice, but I really dig the weight/size of the 11" air. Plus it does everything I need it to AND runs Diablo 3.

The only regret I have is that I didn't realize the 13" Air had an SD card slot. I have an older camera that shoots Compact Flash, but would have been nice as I want to go to a T3i, and I think that uses SD cards.

Thank you all for the input.

Just finished ordering my MBP
My creditcard changed into pink for a few seconds...

Got the MBP 15" retina, 2.7 Ghz i7, 16 Gb and 512 Gb SSD from B&H since their AppleCare is 50% off

Now I just have to wait for flying myself over to Branford, CT to pick it up on the 19th :)
