I am in the market for a new laptop and desktop, and considering the jump to Mac from PC.
There are options for Video RAM of 256 to 512, and HD speed of 5400 vs 7200 RPM.
Then there is CPU speed, 2.53 vs 2.8 GHz etc.
Which of these options make a big difference in processing speed in Lightroom?
I am an event photographer, and need to quickly review hundreds of photos when I get home from a shoot. My present duo-core PC is just too slow.
My gut feeling is that spending money on RAM makes more difference than clock speed, and that in the future VRAM may make a difference, but not at present.
Comments and experience?
BTW, I'm looking at both the 17" Macbook Pro and the iMac, and again my gut is telling me to hang on until the new year when both may be upgraded.
