Think about deferring the monitor and putting the money into a higher-end laptop. I have the 3.0GHz 13" Retina and thought I would want an external monitor, but simply haven't seen the need. Lightroom works great on the Retina display (I don't use Photoshop though), and I'm glad for the extra speed when it's cranking through a large export. You will enjoy whatever machine you get - I have gone back to Mac after 20+ years of Windows and will never look back - but definitely go for the Retina if you can... --Erik
