I've done some research, but is still confused, so any help and advice are greatly appreciated!
I have all the Adobe programs available at work, Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign, and use them a lot. Now we have upgraded our systems, and I will be able to access all my job material, including these programs, from my home computer. It's great for me, as I can both work from home with the big design projects and don't have to stay in at work till late nights.
The thing is, my laptop is 7 years old, full and slow, so I need a new computer anyway. I want a Mac, since I'll be working with Adobe and with photographs. I also want a portable one, since I want the freedom to work everywhere. My research tells me I should go for a MacBook pro, not MacBook air, as the pro is even stronger and faster with the heavy programs. Is this correct?
I've been looking at a MacBook Pro 15.4'' with Retina screen. Anyone has any experience with this? One model as 8gb memory, one has 16gb. Of course 16 is better, but how much? How fast will I fill up 8gb? (I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to stuff like that.) Is it possible to buy more memory later?
I'm really happy for any experience and help on what to buy, thank you so much!
