MacBook Pro hardware specs


Recommended Posts

I'm considering plugging my monitor into my MacBook Pro, instead of building a new PC at a cost I can't afford for a while. 

I've read your El Capitan thread but since I've already upgraded I'm a bit out of luck for having issues. Adobe will update soon I'm sure :-)

Would you advise if the following specs are going to be more than adequate for Photoshop work, please?

Mac Book Pro

Retina 13-inch, Early 2013
3 GHz Intel Core i7
8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
512 GB Apple SSD SD512E
Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
(OS X El Capitan V10.11)

No. For a "Proper" MBP for Photo editing, you start with the $2499 MBP and upgrade a few things. By the time you are done, it's around $3600 or so. 

Which an insane amount of money to spend on a laptop.

I'd rather you purchase a Windows laptop instead. The low-end Macs just aren't worth it. That 13" Mac Laptop you are looking at is equivalent to buying a $400 Windows Laptop. 

Apple really wants you to go big or go home. Which is a shame, since they weren't always this way. Even the 21.5" iMacs are underpowered and not worth it.
