    Well, you should choose the 15 inch with Retina Display, if u plan to use it for heavy designing programs.
    The 13 inch is already equipped with the 3rd generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel processor with onboard Intel HD 4000 graphic card, but the 15 inch also has a discrete NVidia GT 650 Graphic Card which provides much more power than the 13 inch, especially for graphic-thirsty programs.

  • I don't think there is a 3D Max version for Mac, so you'd have to dual boot into windows for that, or use an emulator, but either of the retina powerbooks are super fast, especially with the solid state drives. They can run any of these apps and all of these apps at the same time.
