I have the chance to buy either a Macbook Pro 13 retina or the Macbook Pro 15 retina
My current PC 64bit Win 7 ultimate, i7-2600k @ 3.4ghz , 32gig drr-3 ram, C:) SSD for O/S , D:) SSD for programs (Cubase etc) E: SSD Renders. F:) 1TB HDD for Session files with there audio.
I use both Cubase 7.5 (64 bit), rewired to Reason 7.1 (64 bit) with a truck load CPU hungry VST’s in Cubase (3 - 4 even more) my cpu spikes to 50% even more because I have lots of Reason devices chained up into the rack.
So is switching to Mac platform will it be faster, smoother than how i’m using things atm?
Does the Macbook Pro 13 retina with i5 Dual core @ 2.5ghz, 4gig ram (or do i need to go to 8 gig?) handle the way I use Cubase?
Or the Macbook Pro 15 retina with i7 Quad core @ 2.0ghz, 8gig ram (or do i need to max it out to 16 gig?) be the better option?

I was looking at the topline Macbook Air & i5 Mac mini , i’m still unsure.
I been on PC Windows platform for over 20 years people say there is a huge performance difference, is there?
Look forward to your advice
