I'm looking for a portable laptop (preferably nothing heavier or bigger than the current Macbook Pros. I need to be able to do photo and video editing while traveling which means Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and some Premiere Pro (I'm going on an extended road trip in a few months).
I believe I will be building another PC for myself to use as a primary work horse when I don't need to be mobile, so the laptop will be filling in when I'm out and about or don't want to be stuck in one room of the house.
I'd like a nice screen that is IPS for color accuracy with photo editing.
At the moment I've been going back and forth between the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and a 13in Macbook Pro. I've also looked into the Lenovo X2 Carbon and teh Lenovo Y50 (which I believe is expected to be released with a 4k screen in July but I'm not sure if that will be an IPS display?)
Concerns: The Macbook Pros might be updated in the not so distant future (although I'm not sure this should be a legitimate concern). The Yoga 2 Pro is cheaper for similar hardware but I'm worried about the whole wireless card thing and as much as I'd love to swap out the card on my own for a dual band it would suck to void your warranty and then have a problem with the laptop. Also does anyone know if Adobe software works with the scaling yet on the Yoga 2 Pro's screen? That could be a deal breaker.
I'm not sure exactly how powerful of a laptop I should go for to be honest. Like for example should I definitely get an i7 cpu for the hyper-threading abilities? And should I go with a 256 or 512 SSD?
If anyone has any advice or suggestions, even of new routes I maybe haven't thought of, that would be awesome.
