Macbook Pro question about processors & RAM
Oct 8, 2012


Am looking at a potential move to a Macbook Pro. I was considering the 13" for portability, but looking at other threads it seems that it is worth punting for the Quad Core of the 15" instead.  I'm not so worried about actual screen size, as I use an Eizo external monitor when processing at home.

What I would like advice on is whether the 2.2Ghz, i7 processor, with 4GB RAM and a 500GB SATA @5400 is going to 'cut it' for LR & PS use.  I want to see some significant speed improvement over my Dell Studio which has an Intel Duo 2.13GHz processor & 4GB of RAM

Any advice appreciated
