Hi, Getting a package together to tether a Canon 1Dx with Lightroom ( and Photoshop). Is a Apple 13.3" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer( 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 (Broadwell) 8GB of Onboard 1866 MHz LPDDR3 RAM 128GB PCIe-Based Flash Storage) powerful enough?
Yes. More RAM would help I have 16GB. A few tweaks help like using the graphics card & increasing cache size but you will figure these out during the learning curve. I also use external drive for photo files (you might investigate that) but Catalogue is best kept on HD. Before just jumping in I suggest viewing the millions of video's on 'best' setups. Bear in mind LR is a database - your photo's are wherever you want them. Julianne Kost & Laura Shoe video's will give you a good idea.
