which mac for photo editing
Apr 24, 2013

Hi, I'm looking to replace my 6 year old macbook with a newer model. My primary use for the computer will be photo editing using LR4 which I have now and CS6 which I will purchase sometime in the near future. My current macbook is fine for basic things like internet etc but slows down to frustratingly low speeds when I use LR4 and even snapseed. I have a strong preference for mac because it's all I've ever really used but I'm not ruling out a PC if it really is the best thing for my needs.

I'm looking to spend around a £1000 but can go higher if I think it's worth it. I've been looking around at different macs and this one seems to have the best specs for the money. Are the specs of this mac good enough, I'm a little worried that it's lacking in the graphics department. I'm not tech savvy so please advise.

Thankyou.
