Re: MacBook Pro 13 - Spec advice needed

Lightroom scales best with CPU clock speed and less with cores. So best performance would be the i7 one but I find 500 MHz difference in Turbo speed not that much. So if you need to decide, take the extra RAM - it can be more useful then a slightly better CPU.

If you can afford it, take the i7. I have the 13'' as well with i7, 16 GB RAM und 512 GB SSD, because it's more a mobile addition and not my primary machine. And it run fantastic. But this will also do the i5 with 3,1 GHz (base clock/ 3,5 GHz turbo). Had before an i5 Windows laptop and performance wasn't something to bother for RAW converting.
