Portability or power....rMBP 15" or iMac: opinions/experience?
I need help with a conundrum, folks. We finally convinced IT to switch the marketing dept to Macs. I am purchasing a new main machine. On a daily basis I use my machine for:
Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Lightroom. Also over the next year I plan on adding more video to my workload, mainly work in FinalCut.
I'm weighing using the rMBP so that I'm portable, vs an iMac which I can get with a few more upgrades.
Option One: 15" Retina Macbook with all upgrade options. I would hook up to my NEC monitor when in the office.
Option Two: 27" iMac with all upgrades (except probably with 1TB Fusion instead of SSD).
I am really drawn to having my main machine be portable, but at the expense the faster GPU, CPU, more RAM I could get with the iMac? Any opinions or personal experience? Thanks!
