Macbook Pro Retina 13 w/ external screen

I am currently looking for a laptop to replace my Macbook Air 2011 as a main machine. I hope that it will be powerful enough to run at least 4/5 years.

Normally, I use plugins from the Native Instruments family, mainly Kontakt. Also, I connect to a 27 inch monitor when I use it at home. Few chance to do recording with it since most serious recording sessions will done in a Pro studio.

So can the Mid Spec of the latest MBPr 13inch(2.7GHz i5 w/ 8GB RAM) handle the job well? I have considered the low end 15 inch one. However, I am hesitant due to the cost and portability.

Want to see how everyone thinks?

According to you it is powerful enough ?

I saw that the 64bit Geekbench score , is approximately 7100

I hope you can help me .
