    Here's what I use and it's unbelievably quick with Photoshop open and front-end development (e.g. compiling going on at the same time):

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro11,3 Processor Name: Intel Core i7 Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 Memory: 16 GB

    I'd recommend highly. Maybe get one off eBay or something?

    ...Oh and I plug it into 2 external monitors as well.
