Need to upgrade my computer(s). Currently running LR + PSE (min use) on iMac 21.5 (late 2009 model-4gb ram) and internal drive is 90% full. With new large files from 5dmarkiii (>20Mb), LR is very slow. I also have to run parallels for window based software but not simultaneous. Have MBP 13"(2009) also
Have been looking into either replacing both MBP +iMac outright or just using MBP(beefed up) + display. My main concern is parallels and LR run very slow on iMac(where all processing done) and I cant use new CF cards (udma 7) on anything I have as dont have usb 3.
Looked into docks for MBP but it appears its gonna cost quite a bit more to beef up a MBP + dock + display v. replace iMac and MBP.
16GB or 32 ram
MBP 15 retina
16GB (max amount)
768 flash drive
apple TB 27"display or Dell?
So my question is there a big or minimal difference with these two different set ups in terms of speed, performance, limitations, etc? For those who have MBP + displays, what limitations, if any, have you noticed? Am I missing something here where one is clearly a no brainer?
