Re: Retina MacBook Pro 13'' vs 15'' for Aperture?

Some feedback. Thanks for all input which, together with some discussions on the photography section of Macrumors forums, helped settle this for me and I invested in the rMBP 13'' with the 2.9GHz i7 core. Again I edit photos on a calibrated matte Cinema Display 23''. Main selling point was portability as I travel a lot and I only want one computer.

I can confirm that I can run anything I want including Aperture and it's very, very fast in real life usage. I don't play games (on this machine) and I don't edit video. I can stream music through iTunes to remote speakers, surf the web, download and edit photos into Aperture, open Keynote slideshows etc at the same time with no issues, in fact with its SSD it seems lightning fast to me coming from my old one.
