TB aside, it's just not that great a deal.

If you have Pro workflows like that, you probably want at least 16 GB RAM. Then you're at $1500. The 14 also includes a 512 GB SSD, not 256. You probably want that as well. Then you're at $1699. $300 buys you a much nicer display and sound system, a CPU more tuned towards perf workflows, and lots of little things such as MagSafe, a third Thunderbolt port, HDMI, an SD card slot, …. Plus, of course, the option for higher specs — more CPU cores, more RAM.

Kind of a slim market segment.
