    This computer is so fast--rarely any lag time when using Photoshop and Lightroom. The computer starts right up as do all the software programs. The screen is beautiful but be prepared to turn it way down when calibrating for prints.

          I switched from a PC to a Mac for photo editing purposes. The screen is beautiful. The switch has been less than perfect only because I am learning the new system on my own. Still glad I made the switch and look forward to some day getting a big desk top screen to plug into my laptop.

            The screen is really amazing. This is my first Mac computer and the main reason to buy this laptop is to develop some IOs applications. But the computer is really fast. The only complaining is the price is much higher than my old thinkpad laptop.

                Works as it should. Great clarity, fast speed. Long battery life. I am a photographer and use this as a second computer to be able to work from home at times. I use a 27" iMac at the studio.

                        I'm a designer who own's my own studio, I have 3 Mac laptops and I would not buy anything else. Migrating info from old laptop to new laptop was a piece of cake. I'm very happy with my upgrade.
