Default Laptop for Photography

I am new to this Forum and hope I am not wasting anyones time. I am looking for some info on buying a new laptop. I am brainwashed with Apple products so I am looking to get my wife a new Macbook Pro for her photography business. I have spec out a 15" 2.6GHz 16GB RAM 1TB SSD. My question is with the Graphics Card.

Does it matter for photography purposes to get the upgraded Radeon Pro 460 4GB? Or will the 450 2GB be just as good? Im not planning on Gaming to often on this Laptop.

Side question: Are there any pro's for photography to getting the 2.7GHz or 2.9GHz?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Graphics card is not needed for photography, since graphics cards rendering 3d models and graphics. So just stay with 450 2gb, and 2.7 and 2.9 ghz not really matter I think.... both will be good.
