    I have an interesting situation. So right now I am still rocking an Early 2011 MacBook Pro. It has served me well. It went through 5 or 6 Mac OSs, upgraded the HDD to SSD, bumped up the RAM from 4 to 8 GB, and I even installed the Windows 10 Insider Preview (currently upgraded to the public release). I am thinking of possibly switching back to Windows since I will be coding a lot.

    A little about me: I am a Sophomore in college who is Double Majoring in Business Administration and Management Information Systems. I don't know if I would consider myself as a power user, but the most intense programs I've used were Photoshop and Final Cut Pro X (Adobe Premiere - when I switch to Windows).

    If that is how intense I get in terms of computing power, should I wait and see what Microsoft does with the Surface Pro 4 or should I bypass it completely and just stick with a traditional laptop? If laptop, I've had my eye on the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 12 (2nd gen). Thoughts?

    Surface Pro 4 will have some cool things like Windows Hello and the new broadwell processors for better graphics and battery life. That being said, the Pro 3 is a steal right now and I run photoshop and illustrator on it no problem. There is no competition for the built in pen and it's a treat to use with OneNote, a huge differentiator if your going to be using it in class.

    How's the experience with Photoshop? Assuming it is the CC version since full versions without subscriptions are now gone because of Piracy reasons. Also, have you done video editing on it at all?
