I'm looking to upgrade by 2013 MacBook Pro. Looking at the different MacBooks available with 16GB unified memory (recommended for lightroom and photoshop), there appears to be a 7-Core GPU Air, or a 14-Core GPU Pro. There is also an 8-Core GPU Air, but it only has 8GB unified memory. I'm getting a bit lost as to what is more important - the GPU or the unified memory? I primarily use the laptop for lightroom, with occassional photoshop use (that my current computer struggles with). Can anyone offer any advice?
I'm looking too, be useful to know about RAM, I thought more was better and wouldn't consider less than 32gigs (Photoshop uses lots). Also GPU; seems more and more functionality is moving to that processing, I wonder how well LR would do with a faster GPU.
What speeds up grid? It has never been especially zippy.
