I am in the market for a 15" MacBook Pro with Retina Display. I am trying to decide between a few different models. Is the NVIDIA 750M Graphics Processor going to make any difference in my life, positive or negative? I use InDesign and Photoshop quite a bit, I am starting to do more coding and am always meaning to get back into Dreamweaver and learn Muse. I only edit video once every couple years, and it's always pretty low-stakes when I do. Will Photoshop see any benefit from the discrete graphics processor? If not now, should I be planning on it benefitting in the next five years or so? Alternately, would switching between the two processors actually hinder Photoshop's performance?
This will give you an idea and help you decide what is best for your work. 1-2 GB vram is good. 2 GB vram would future-proofing it if requirements change.
Roberto works the graphics design beat and is clear about what's really important.
