Hi im looking for advice on choosing a new MacBook. I am looking into the MacBook pro 13" with retina
•2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
•8GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
•256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage
but the apple worker is telling me if I want to run adobe lightroom and photoshop I will need to get the 16gb.
so im stuck in deciding what to get I also have a budget. so I don't know if I should just stick to the one I was going to get or go with a MacBook pro that doesn't have retina and add more storage. if you have any advice id appreciate it thank you.
Lightroom typically uses 3GB of ram at the minimum,performing raw conversions and other tasks raises this considerably ,kernel task and basic apps will use easily another 3Gb of ram,I think that 16GB of ram is a good idea for your next Macbook...
