    I'm going to buy a MacBook Pro with Retina display pretty soon, but I can't decide between these two models. I will mainly use it for photo editing with Photoshop CS6 and some video editing with Final Cut Pro X. I'd also like to be able play some games on it (with medium settings). My main concern is if the 13" model is too small for my purposes.

    13-inch:
    2.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
    Turbo Boost up to 3.1GHz
    8GB 1600MHz memory
    256GB PCIe-based flash storage1
    Intel Iris Graphics
    -1 549,00

    15-inch:
    2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
    Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz
    16GB 1600MHz memory
    256GB PCIe-based flash storage1
    Intel Iris Pro Graphics
    -2 049,00

    For Final Cut Pro and Photo Editing I'd recommend getting the 15" rMBP as it is far more powerful.

    I was in the same boat, trying to decide which one would be good for photography and the occasional video editing.

    I ended up getting the top tier 13 inch, with 16GB of RAM.

    I thought the screen would be too tiny, but upping the resolution makes editing photos and video in FCPX really nice.
