Remember these are all RUMORS. So look at it as a rough idea of what the future can bring.

NatGeo photogs use far more older Macs in the field just fine. So do photojournalists in warzones as well.

So if your requirements are more challenging than theirs then you should buy a large, heavy, clunky and yet cheap PC. :)

What's more you can buy a PC to play games!!!!! Macs dont do games that well. :( Bad Mac!!!! Bad!!!

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?

After 75 days!

Very late 2012 iMac by alabang, on Flickr

On the brown box it stated it landed in Singapore from China on 01/24/13. It then flew over here and was delivered to the dealer today.

Many thanks to Digital Walker Alabang Town Center for being courteous and helpful despite Apple's manufacturing problems. :D

For $4,000 center to edge sharpness and optical quality should be = 1 and no < 0.9

For that money I' rather buy a Leica lens.

How much?

16-35 or 17-40 with a full frame body like a 5D3 or 1DX. Off camera lights help

Because of the 40/2.8 I have decided to not get the 35/1.4 II anymore.

Scotty & Daniel thank you!
Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea) by alabang, on Flickr

The Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea) is breeds in colonies in reed beds or trees close to large lakes or other extensive wetlands. It builds a bulky stick nest.

It feeds in shallow water, spearing fish, frogs, insects and small mammals. It will often wait motionless for prey, or slowly stalk its victim. It tends to keep within reedbeds more than the Grey Heron, and is often inconspicuous, despite its size.

It has a slow flight, with its neck retracted. This is characteristic of herons and bitterns, and distinguishes them from storks, cranes and spoonbills, which extend their necks. The long neck of Purple Heron looks particularly snake-like, with more of an S-shape in flight. The call is a loud croaking "krek".

The Purple Heron is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.
