    Hey mostafa, welcome!

    Any kind of jobs that require sustained, proc-intensive efforts from the machine, I would stay away from the SP3. Short story- you will quickly run into issues where throttling kicks in (which happens on ALL machines by the way, just to different extents) and your performance drops.

    Also SP3 and MBP are two completely different devices with totally different use cases. You really can't compare them, task-for-task. Truly apples and oranges here, no pun intended.

    i would think it would depend on what software you like, a SP2 8 gig works just fine for 3dmax (for single computer rendering) but real rendering is done with more then one computer, lucky for us our beloved tablet is a computer :D that can talk to other computers, now i want buy all the surfaces i can for a surface render farm
