Retina Macbook Pro (late 2013) -- Iris Pro or Iris Pro + Nvidia GT750M (mostly for Lightroom)

Hi all, I'm looking into getting a new rMBP, and I'm hung up on one detail: whether to get it with the Nvidia GT750M or the version with just the Iris Pro.

My understanding is that Lightroom doesn't make use of the Nvidia GT750M (and I'm not a gamer) -- so that leads me to think I should get just the Iris Pro.

I partly feel like also having the Nvidia means the overall system is somewhat more complicated, and it might add to heat and deplete the batter faster, though I'm not entirely sure.

However -- and oddly -- a configured system costs the same, regardless of whether I have the Nvidia or not.

I hoping somebody might have some advice on whether I'd be better off getting the rMPB with or without the Nvidia card.

Thanks kindly in advance,  -Scott
