Aloha! I'd welcome some advice.... I'm advising a friend, an amateur photographer with talent and potential, on what kind of computer setup that would be sufficient for photo editing. Budget is a factor. They are considering a new 13" MacBook Pro for about $1425 with these specs: 2.9GHz dual-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz, 8GB 1600MHz memory, 750GB 5400-rpm hard drive, Intel HD Graphics 4000.
Given the limited screen real estate of a 13" MacBook, I've advised them that they will need an external monitor if they go that route.
My question is: Is the video graphics capacity in this MacBook Pro sufficient for LR and PS photo editing?
