I am about to upgrade my 2011 MBP for a new one. I'll use it for gathering and ordering the dailies and for some basic cuts when I out on the fields, 90% native AVCHD 1080i, so no heavy transcoding/rendering. I have noticed that the top of the line MBPr is the only one to offer an Invidia card in addition to the Iris Pro. I've only found gamers recensions, so I would be curious to know if it's worth the extra money for FCPX.
