Recommend a 13'' laptop for photo editing and light gaming?
I'd prefer 13'' since when home I will hook it up to my 23'' monitor I have in my home office, so it will be nice and portable as well. Also, would prefer an IPS screen for photo editing without the external monitor (even though my monitor isn't IPS), but could be persuaded otherwise.
I was considering a rMBP 13'', but my main concern is switching platforms...even though I use an ipad, everything I know about computers is windows based and am very comfortable - not sure if I really want to switch to a mac, but if it's the best option for the money, I'll do it.
I hear a lot of people saying they're not worth the price for the specs, but is that really true? 13'' rMBP is $1,000 now (BB), and the Dell 13'' XPS is pretty much the same price with a worse display (non-touch).
What would you recommend for me? Nice screen, 13'', SSD would be nice, able to handle Adobe products (Lightroom, Photoshop maybe), and some light gaming here and there possibly... mainly will be used for photo editing.
