The Macbook Pro is a Lie(theverge.com)

    Why is everyone so obsessed with having to have a "professional" machine. Chances are you are using a less powerful / less spec'd machine than the new ones as we speak.

    For the price, it is reasonable to assume the most important components for being productive — CPU, GPU and RAM — are up to date with what’s available.

    Slower, more portable and cheaper MacBooks exist. That market is pretty well served. The issue is that the high end Macs, including the new MacBook Pro, are not close to being best in class, performance wise. For many people, that’s fine. For others, it’s not.

    The second you’re working on 3D or building large Xcode projects or even working on large design documents, this stuff can matter.
