I have latest 13" rMBP with i5 and 8 GB of RAM and 15" rMBP with i7, 16 GB of RAM and Nvidia graphic processor. LR5 performance on both is fast and hard to distinguish. But as soon as I jump to PS the 15" rMBP is significantly faster and smoother as PS is actually using the graphic processor.
That was the main reason the 13" is now my wife's. My 15" laptop stays cool comparing to my old MBP from few years ago that was getting uncomfortably hot on the bottom. Don't know how Nvidia affects battery life
